Arm in splint for breaks or fractures
Make a splint for breaks or fractures

Make a splint for the break or fracture. Do not move a bone if it is broken. Use sticks, magazines, or splint boards to keep the break or fracture from moving.

It is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between a sprain and a fracture. Make a splint for a sprain just as you would for a fracture. Try to prevent unnecessary motion.

Do not move a victim with a serious neck or back injury. Send for qualified medical help immediately.
