Treat Bone Fractures

Written By: First Aid Training Bangkok

Important Information

Suspect a fracture if, after a fall or blow, a limb appears to be in an unnatural position, is unusable, swells or bruises rapidly or is extremely painful at a specific point

Only splint an injury if EMS care or transport to a medical facility is delayed and if you can do so without causing further pain and discomfort to the patient

All fractures need professional medical attention

Patient Care; Bone Fractures
  • For a patient involved in a major fall, collision or blow, conduct an injury assessment to determine the extent of all injuries besides an obvious dislocation or fracture
  • Splint the injury in the position found minimizing movement while splinting; Do not try to straighten the fracture
  • Bandage the splint in place using a triangle bandage or other available materials
  • Fractured fingers and toes may be taped to adjacent fingers or toes for extra support
  • Check circulation before and after splinting; Loosen the splint if it interferes with the circulation
  • For a closed fracture, apply a cold compress to the area to reduce the swelling during transportation
