Cervical Collars - Emergency Medical Responder (EMR)

A rigid cervical collar only really controls the flexion motion of the cervical spine. The rotational movement, if indicated by local spinal motion restriction protocols, is restricted with the head immobilizer, and extension movements are restricted with the back board.


Remember to maintain manual stabilization in conjunction with a cervical collar until you secure the head with a head immobilizer and always immobilize the torso first, followed by the head and neck, when securing a patient to a back board.


GO BEYOND YOUR LIMITS!
