How To: Splint a broken bone in an emergency

Splint a broken bone in an emergency

This video is about how to splint a broken bone in an emergency situation. You will need two sticks. For a broken arm you will place the sticks on the front and back of the arm. Now tear a shirt, piece of clothing or other cloth into strips. Tightly wrap the strips of cloth around the arm and the sticks on either side of the fracture - near the elbow and near the wrist. If you have a severe break where part of the bone is sticking out through the skin, take two strips of cloth and wrap one at each side of the fracture. Next take the rest of the shirt and wrap it directly over the protruding bone.
