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!
