Spinal immobilisation is a common intervention in the pre-hospital patient following trauma. This was what we were taught as Pre-Hospital Practitioners and have done for the last 20 years.However the research over the last 10 years compels us to take another look at what we have been doing and think before we routinely attempt to immobilise every possible trauma patient.The evidence shows that it is impossible to have complete "Spinal Immobilisation" and what we should be doing when necessary is "Spinal Motion Restriction".If we decide it is appropriate to apply SMR what equipment would be best suited for the purpose to minimise potentially harmful
consequences for our patient.
