MrKevIsMeToSlow said:I'm 70% completed with EMT school, already up to EMT intermediate & only way to support anybody from going unconscious or sustaining anymore injuries is you're to post to support the head & keep it up so the body doesn't sustain any lower body pain...for ex. if you notice you notice why EMT's put that brace on people neck when they're involved in a wreck thats for that main purpose.
evolution_sfv said:you sure about that? cuz i am a student nurse (lvn), and as i know you are specific to emergencies.. you probably know better than me in this instance. but, i dont think consciousness has anything to do with head movement. yes, im sure most know that keeping the spine/neck in alignment is vital, but it wouldnt help consciousness at all. unless the intercranial pressure was increasing.. but then the level of counsiousness would be altered and pupils equal round reaction to light would differ. transporting the patient on a backboard with a neck brace is crucial so any injuries to the spine dont worsen, i understand. but again, i dont think its "the only way to support anybody from going unconscious" as you stated above. teach me if im wrong =]
