  • In order to be able to save the lives of sudden cardiac arrest patients and avoid neurological damage, a steady supply of oxygen to the heart and brain is needed.
    Life-sustaining circulation can be created through effective and uninterrupted chest compressions, however, performing manual chest compressions of high quality can be difficult, and sometimes impossible, and only worsens over time.
    To help with this, a LUCAS chest compression device can be utilized to sustain higher blood flow to the brain and heart.
    In order to help the ambulance crew from the Chippewa County-Montevideo Hospital provide the best service upon arriving at the scene, tenants and staff at Copper Glen are holding a bake sale.
