South Dakota LUCAS Video on Vimeo, featuring Sturigs Ambulance Serivce
In 2014, the Sturgis Ambulance Service received 2 LUCAS™ machines through funding from The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust.

The LUCAS™ Chest Compression System is a safe and efficient tool that standardizes chest compressions in accordance with the latest scientific guidelines.  It provides the same quality for all patients and over time, independent of transport conditions, rescuer fatigue, or variability in the experience level of the caregiver. By doing this, it frees up rescuers to focus on other life-saving tasks and creates new rescue opportunities.

Paramedic Aaron Mitchell and EMT-B Jeremy Deuter from the Sturgis Ambulance Service are highlighted in this video produced by The University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences. 

The purpose of the video is to bring more attention to advances in rural health.  It's great that Sturgis Ambulance Service was selected to receive these potentially life-saving devices!
