Title (EN) PELVIC SPLINT AND ASSOCIATED METHOD
(FR) GOUTTIERE PELVIENNE ET TECHNIQUE ASSOCIEE
Abstract:
(EN) A pelvic splint for immobilizing and maintaining the annular integrity of the pelvis in the event of a pelvic ring fracture. The pelvic splint extends from about 5-10 cm above the iliac crest down to about the middle third of the thighs and substantially encircles the pelvis of the victim. The splint is then secured about the pelvis of the victim with two or more adjustable straps. The splint comprises a flexible casing having at least one pliable padding layer disposed therein and a plurality of flexible members individually disposed in pockets spaced apart about the casing. Once tightly secured around the pelvis by the adjustable straps, the splint conforms to the contours of the victim's pelvic area and stabilizes the pelvis by preventing lateral movement and constraining the pelvis in such a manner to preserve the annular integrity thereof. An associated method of stabilizing a pelvis is also disclosed.
(FR) La présente invention concerne une gouttière pelvienne permettant d'immobiliser et de maintenir l'intégrité annulaire du bassin en cas de fracture du bassin. Cette gouttière part à environ 5 à 10 cm au dessus de la crête iliaque, descend jusqu'au tiers médian des cuisses et encercle sensiblement le bassin de la personne victime de fracture. Cette gouttière est ensuite fixée autour du bassin de cette personne avec au moins deux brides réglables. Cette gouttière comprend une gaine souple qui possède au moins une couche de rembourrage pliable placée à l'intérieur et une pluralité d'éléments souples positionnés individuellement dans des poches espacées autour de la gaine. Lorsque cette gouttière est fixée, bien ajustée autour du bassin par les brides réglables, elle épouse les formes de la région pelvienne de la personne et stabilise son bassin en empêchant les mouvements latéraux et en contraignant son bassin de manière à protéger son intégrité annulaire. Cette invention concerne aussi une technique de stabilisation du bassin associée.
