A spinal board is primarily indicated for use in cases of trauma where the medical or rescue personnel believe that there is a possibility of spinal injury. CPR Savers offers a large variety of spine boards for every scenario that may arise.
Whenever patients have a traumatic head or neck injury, they may have a cervical fracture. This makes them at high risk for spinal cord injury, which could be exacerbated by movement of the patient and could lead to paralysis or death. A common scenario for this injury would be a patient suspected of having whiplash due to a car accident. In order to prevent further injury, such patients may have a collar placed by medical professionals until X-rays can be taken to determine if a cervical spine fracture exists.
CPR Savers and First Aid Supply LLC also offers a huge selection of most every other type of splinting devices imaginable. We got you covered with splints for every emergency situation that may arise.
