Basic principles of transport immobilization:
• the tire must necessarily capture two joints (above and below the fracture), and sometimes three (for fractures of the hip, shoulder);
• when immobilizing a limb, it is necessary to give it a natural position, if possible, and if this is not possible, then a position in which the limb is least injured;
• for any fractures, the reduction of fragments is not performed, if necessary, a sterile dressing is applied and the limb is fixed in the position in which it is located;
• in case of closed fractures, it is not necessary to remove clothes from the victim;
• you can’t put a rigid tire directly on the body, you must put a soft pad under it (cotton wool, towel);
• during the transfer of the patient from the stretcher, the damaged limb must be supported by an assistant.
Remember: The process of learning a person lasts a lifetime. The value of the same knowledge for different people may be different, it is determined by their individual characteristics and needs. Therefore, knowledge is always needed at any age and position.
