HOW TO USE RESCUE SWAG AS A SPLINT & IMMOBILISATION DEVICE

 

 Follow these simple steps to use your Rescue Swag as a SPLINT & IMMOBILISATION DEVICE:

 

  1. Remove first aid modules from the Rescue Swag and zip it closed
  2. Lengthen (webbing) straps
  3. 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
  4. 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).
