HOW TO USE RESCUE SWAG AS A SPLINT & IMMOBILISATION DEVICE
Follow these simple steps to use your Rescue Swag as a SPLINT & IMMOBILISATION DEVICE:
- Remove first aid modules from the Rescue Swag and zip it closed
- Lengthen (webbing) straps
- Wrap Rescue Swag carefully around injured limb as required - you will configure your splint to suit the injury. Take care to position around other injuries
- Tighten straps until the joint is immobilised or immobilisation is achieved, taking care not to over tighten.
Alternatively, this Rescue Swag can be used to immobilise a leg by fitting it to both legs.
Offering extra support and lessening movement (as pictured below).
