- LUCAS 3, v.3.1 Training Unit
The latest in training units, the LUCAS 3.1 Training Unit allows users to practice chest compressions on a manikin.
Performing CPR within the first 3-5 minutes can increase a victim’s chance of survival from 6% to 74%. Immediate CPR is made even more effective when delivering high-quality chest compressions with a depth of 2 inches and a rate of at least 100 compressions per minute.
The latest version of the LUCAS Training Unit provides trainees with all the knowledge they’ll need to use the clinical version of the device during a real cardiac emergency by allowing them to experience the unit in action on a manikin.
- Default Settings: 102+/- 2 compressions per minute
- Suction cup for assistance in recoil to start position
- Piston to stabilize compression points
- Wireless Connectivity (to the LIFENET System)
How to Use
This training unit, provides users with first-hand experience of how the clinical counterpart to the LUCAS 3.1 Training Unit would react during an emergency.
The user simply needs to place the manikin in place of where the patient would be and lower the compression device until it is resting in the center of the patient’s chest. It will then begin continuous effective CPR.
By the compression system delivering CPR, it frees up the responder to effectively complete other essential tasks, such as preparing the AED to deliver a potentially life-saving shock or calling the EMS whilst the system continually performs CPR.

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.
