The Airway Benefits of Mechanical CPR

nextgen learning designed to elevate your airway practice


Mechanical CPR an airway tool


One way to minimize intubation time is using mechanical CPR with devices like the LUCAS. Learn why here.

How to use the lucas 3 device

If you have access to a mechanical CPR device during intubation, you should know how to use it! The Lucas 3 is a popular choice (we have no financial relationship with Stryker), so as part of this learning space, we’d like to show you how to use one!

Go ahead and watch this video and then use the rest of the resources here, including the guided practice tools and hands-on learning opportunities connected to this space. Once you’re comfortable initiating mechanical CPR, you can practice supraglottic airway placement and intubation with the device, giving active chest compressions.
