Pre-hospital Management of the Fractured Femur Using the Tauranga Thomas Splint

  • AG Mac Mahon

Abstract

Two aspects of the early management of the fractured femur are discussed: firstly the immediate treatment in the pre-hospital phase and secondly the transportation of this injury case over a long distance where necessary. In both instances there is considerable room for improvement, and this is discussed, particularly with relation to splinting techniques.
