LUCAS Chest Compression System at VJH Emergency Department
Drs. Susan Wiseman and Lisa Heidt, along with Leanne Donaldson and Brenda Robson test the new LUCAS Chest Compression System at VJH.
The LUCAS Chest Compression System has arrived at the VJH Emergency Department.
The Vernon Doctors Hockey Tournament, founded by Dr. William Cawkell, raised $75,000 for VJH Foundation to support the purchase of the system, as well as surgical services.
The LUCAS system performs mechanically-controlled chest compressions on a rotating two-minute schedule.
Life-sustaining circulation can be created through effective and uninterrupted chest compressions.
The system provides consistent quality for all patients, independent of transport conditions, rescuer fatigue, or variability in the experience level of the caregiver.
