The BLS PCS states to splint open/closed femur fracture with a traction splint unless partially amputated. I am just wondering, would still be safe and indicated to use a sager splint when there is also suspicion of a pelvic fracture?


SWORBHP Medical Council endorses paramedic judgement when deciding upon airway management strategies. During the pandemic, under the COVID considerations, ETI safety risks were high due to the transmissible nature of COVID and its prevalence. Now that the COVID considerations have been lifted, the risks (difficulty of airway visualization, apnea causing hypoxia, risk of spread of infectious diseases, aspiration etc.) must continue to be weighed with the benefit of airway management strategy.
