How to make a splint

Splint - instructions

A splint is a device used to hold a part of the body stable to decrease pain and prevent further injury.

Fracture types (1)

There are several types of bone fracture, including oblique -- a fracture which goes at an angle to the axis, comminuted -- a fracture of many relatively small fragments, spiral -- a fracture which runs around the axis of the bone, and compound -- a fracture (also called open) which breaks the skin.

Hand splint - series

To begin making a hand dressing, place the injured hand around a cloth ball or other malleable (cushioned or padded) object, such as a tennis ball, balled-up sock, or rolled-up elastic bandage.
