The LUCAS 3.0 chest compression system by Physio Control is a light-weight and easy-to-use piece of equipment, which provides a patient with consistent chest compressions.
The LUCAS 3.0 is another addition to Physio Control's LUCAS chest compression system range. The LUCAS 3.0 device is lightweight, meaning that it can be portable and transported easily to an emergency.
The new device has new and improved features, which guarantee effective and reliable chest compressions, in accordance with government guidelines. In addition to this, the chest compression system gives consistent compressions, in terms of rate and depth, even when you are on the move. This helps to free up the emergency responders, which means they can attend to other emergency issues.
Effective CPR and defibrillation is the only definitive method for treating a victim of sudden cardiac arrest, therefore, you can be assured that CPR will be provided to a good standard to help improve the victim's chance of survival.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
