Splinting, Fractures & Dislocations
Hands on, Fun, Friendly and Informal Workshop
No powerpoint presentiations, No chalk and Talk – we all get stuck in
The best environment to learn
We’ll have an array of first aid splints such as traction, hard, soft and flexible splints
Three full hours of proper touchy feely get stuck in learning.
The reality is that most first aiders have touched upon splinting in a course covering a vast amount of topics and each get subject is diluted, often forgotten.
The problem is, when the moment arrives and you are in front of a casualty with an open fracture, catastrophic bleed and going into shock – do you really, truthfully know what to do?
Can you put together a traction splint?
Would you use a tourniquet?
Do you know how to immobilise a patient?
This is a unique opportunity to look at different splints, have some fun trying out different techniques – making decisions without harming people.
What splints are available that a first aider can easily carry? Are these bendy splints any good?
Will you do more damage by splinting? Will a touniquet cause problems?
We do not cover vacuum splints
Treatment of shoulder dislocation: is a sling more appropriate?
