Emergency Immobilizers, Head/Cervical, Pediatric

Definition : Emergency immobilizers designed for maximum restriction of movements and/or total immobilization of the head and the cervical vertebrae of children. These immobilizers usually consist of rigid structures (e.g., short boards) with an appropriate size that permits the attachment of the head and the proximal (i.e., cervical) section of the spine of a child. The board is frequently made of light metallic or hard plastic radiolucent materials. Head/cervical spine immobilizers are frequently attached to whole-body immobilizers (i.e., long backboards) and/or stretchers, providing additional restriction of the body movement. They are mainly used after traumatic injuries to facilitate safer and easier transportation and/or diagnosis, and ease of access to radiographic procedures. Extrication collars mainly intended for use after vehicle accidents are also available. Dedicated head/cervical spine immobilizers intended for infants are also available.
