24-7 EMS Online: Spinal Injury Management

List Price: $5.95
Product Code: EMS1129

Changing concepts in spinal protection address the over reliance on mechanism of injury in suspecting spinal injury, the difficulty of achieving true spinal immobilization, and the discomfort and problems caused when attempting it. Spinal motion restriction, or SMR, focuses on an assessment-based decision process and the appropriate use of traditional spinal stabilization tools such as backboards when managing severely injured individuals

This course reviews patient situations that may require spinal motion restriction and the assessment process for determining if it is necessary. Topics include the provider’s role in assessment of the risks and benefits to a patient, the latest evidence-based guidelines and recommended protocols on when to implement spinal motion restriction, and how to stabilize a patient’s spine for transport.

Featuring Will Chapleau RN, EMT-P. Director, Performance Improvement, American College of Surgeons (ACS) Executive Services, Chicago, IL.
