First aid for fractures
First aid for fractures should include stopping bleeding, pain, dressing wounds and in the presence of transport immobilization.
Immobilization – the creation of conditions for the immobility of the affected part of the body. Immobilization not have to be used in fractures of bones, joints, damaged nerves, major blood vessels, extensive damage to muscle, burns a large area of the body. In these situations, the motion, which makes the patient is randomly or spontaneously during transportation can cause harm to his health.
Immobilization of Transport – is the creation of immobile limb for the time necessary for the delivery of patient travmopunkte or hospital. It allows you to avoid further damage to surrounding the fracture site blood vessels, nerves, soft tissue and sharp bone fragments, thus, reduces the risk of traumatic shock, significant blood loss and infection. Transport immobilization applied for several hours, sometimes for several days if the hospital is far away from the scene.
Immobilization of the fractured limb is carried out by time & attendance tires:
Requirements for transport of immobilization following:
- The tire must be applied not only to the injury site, and grabbing the next two joints, sometimes there is a need for immobilization of three adjacent joints. This is done to prevent movement in the joints, which are transferred to the injured limb. In addition, at the turn of the finiteness of the nearby joint, dislocation of the head can occur a broken bone.
- Broken limbs should be given the correct position. This measure reduces the possibility of injury surrounding tissue, blood vessels and nerves. In open fractures the wound bandaged. Before applying immobilization tires, if possible, to have anesthesia.
- Rigid bus must be imposed on clothing, or in areas of friction with bony protuberances is enclosed cotton, soft cloth.
- Immobilization should be sufficient to create a stillness broken bones, as incorrect or incomplete immobilization can lead to inflict more harm than good.
