LUCAS 2 On Order
Sun. Dec 15th 2013

According the American Heart Association, EMS treats 300,000 victims of cardiac arrest each year.

 Less than eight percent of those people survive. However, survival statistics of Glen Rock EMS patients could improve with the help of a new piece of CPR equipment.

 Its name is Lucas 2, and for a patient experiencing cardiac arrest, it could be their new best friend.

 Lucas 2 can perform uninterrupted, high quality CPR at 100 beats per minute--that's the most effective rate for chest compressions according to the American Heart Association. It's also a rate near impossible to maintain for a long period of time by EMS crews doing CPR manually.

 Glen Rock's Lucas CPR device is on order. This life saving device will soon (~March '14) will be in service on our BLS unit.

 This unit costs in excess of $15,000. Private and corporate donations are welcome and encouraged!! Consider helping us give the gift of life.
