Spinal Immobilization

R.E.B.E.L.EM - By Salim Rezaie - August 07, 2019
"THE BOTTOM LINE:
  • There is no high-level evidence that prehospital spinal immobilization positively impacts patient oriented outcomes
  • Spinal Immobilization Does NOT Help Immobilize the Cervical Spine
  • Spinal Immobilization Does NOT Decrease Rates of Spinal Cord Injury
  • Spinal Immobilization Increases the Difficulty of Airway Management
  • Spinal Immobilization Can Cause Pressure Ulcers
  • Spinal Immobilization Changes the Physical Exam
  • Spinal Immobilization Worsens Pulmonary Function
  • Spinal Immobilization Increases Intracranial Pressure
  • There is no evidence that immobilizing awake, alert patients without deficits/complaints provides benefit
  • Selective spinal immobilization protocols can help identify patients at low risk for injury and avoid immobilization"
