As a Level 1 trauma center, UChicago Medicine sees its fair share of sudden cardiac arrest patients – including in the cath lab, where the challenge of providing high quality chest compressions can be difficult to say the least.

In this episode of resus10, Sean Graham interviews Dr. Atman Shah, the clinical director for the section of cardiology, co-director of the cardiac catheterization laboratory and associate professor of medicine at the University of Chicago Medicine. Dr. Shah discusses how his team uses mechanical CPR with the LUCAS chest compression system to provide high quality patient care, protect his resuscitators and how this technology has become implemented beyond his cath lab.
