- LUCAS 2 Power Adaptor
The LUCAS 2 Power Adapter will provide sufficient charge to the LUCAS 2 device which provides hands-free compressions to a victim, allowing a rescuer to give their full attention to the needs of the patient and monitoring AED.
Chest compressions require a lot of energy as they can be physically exhausting for the rescuer; this is why Physio Control have created a device to fulfill the role and deliver effective compressions in the event that the rescuer should become exhausted. The LUCAS 2 Power Adapter is the electrical power outlet that powers the LUCAS 2, enabling it to give effective and sustained compression of 100 per minute at a depth of 1.5 – 2 inches.
The combination of the LUCAS 2 and the Power Adapter reduces the caregiver's fatigue, ensuring the most effective treatment is delivered to the patient.
How to Use
Simply connect the Power Adapter to your LUCAS 2 device and you’ll be providing this piece of equipment with additional charge and support for long periods of usage.
This adapter also charges the LUCAS 2 battery within the device. This charge takes approximately 4 hours to charge which will provide the battery with enough power to run the device for 45 minutes continuously.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
