Charles, 58, had a history of heart disease and came into the Emergency Department with chest pain and shortness of breath. The emergency team called in the ED physicians, but Charles deteriorated quickly and required manual chest compressions.
Fortunately, the cardiac Cath lab team was able to use the LUCAS to deliver mechanical compressions to stabilize Charles.This device delivers consistent, high-quality chest compressions, that improve patient outcomes. Charles was able to leave the hospital within a few days and recently enjoyed his granddaughter’s 4th birthday.
Your support of Cardiac Care ensures that patients benefit from the most effective and high-quality treatment options available.
