Warning: Last items in stock!
The Ambu Perfit extrication collar is a one-piece rigid cervical spine immobilisation devise designed to assist the rescuer with the maintenance of neutral alignment, prevention of lateral (side-to-side) sway and anteriorposterior (forward and backward) flexion and extension of the cervical spine during transport and routine patient care or movement.
Prevention and/or further extension of damage to the cervical spine and spinal cord is accomplished by maintaining the head and neck in a position of "neutral alignment". the head and next should not be flaxed forward, extended backward, or cocked to one side or the other. The neutral alignment position prevents damaged vertebrae or foreign bodies from rubbing or/and cutting the spinal cord. Additionally, the neutral alignment position prevents the spinal cord from being twisted or compressed causing physical and/or ischemic injury to the spinal cord. An extrication collar is only part of total patient immobilization.
