Resolution to Approve a Purchase Order with Stryker Medical for the Purchase of Mechanical CPR Devices - LUCAS Devices ($95,794)
Memorandum
The Fire Department has had use of mechanical CPR devices for four years under a medical research project with University of Michigan, Dept of Emergency Medicine. The research project reached its conclusion in the winter of 2020. We have been informed these devices need to be returned to the manufacturer under the terms of the research project. We pursued a regional FEMA grant but were unsuccessful. These devices have become a critical tool for us in delivering the best possible out of hospital cardiac arrest care. In calendar year 2020, AAFD provided care to 61 cardiac arrest patients, and this device was used on every one of those patients. Several of these patients made a full in-tact neurological recovery. Huron Valley Ambulance does not have these units on their ambulances and relies on the Fire Dept to provide them.

Pricing has been obtained via the National Association of State Procurement Officials program via a State of Oklahoma bid proposal as approved by the City of Ann Arbor's purchasing manager.

This purchase is for equipment only.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Funding is available in the FY21 Fire Services operating budget.
