Spinal Immobilization Video

Here in Connecticut, we await the final day of spinal immobilization (to a long backboard). The new spinal motion restriction guidelines have been approved by the state EMS Medical Advisory Committee and the State EMS Board. We are just waiting on the completion of the educational training program and the Commissioner of Public Health’s final approval.

I recently was sent this video documenting what is soon (hopefully) to be an extinct practice — at least in our state.

Enjoy!

    Thank you for a good honest post. I think those classic or "typical" presentations we learn in school are the exceptions really.

    Someone has rearranged the position of the leads for a quicker reading, personally I would use that format because I read the leads in groups (II III AvF, I AvL, AvR)

    Fantastic case for education. Would you mind if I shared with some colleagues at med school (will give credit of course)?
