- Physio Control LUCAS 3.0 Training Unit
Designed to emulate the clinical counterpart, the LUCAS 3 Training Unit from Physio-Control enables learners to thoroughly understand how the device would deliver effective CPR during a cardiac emergency on a casualty.
The Physio Control LUCAS 3.0 Training Unit enables trainees to learn how the clinical counterpart would react and treat a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
Effective CPR is part of the definitive treatment for SCA victims and it is essential that the patient receives this part of the treatment to provide them with the highest chance of survival. Physio Control's LUCAS 3.0 helps to improve the operations of the responders treating the patient as it delivers effective CPR, allowing the responders to focus on attaching the AED to the patient and delivering the potentially life-saving shock.

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.
