    Yup. Found this out during an EMT refresher class recently. It was my turn to play victim and have the traction splint put on. Went to get down on the floor and almost fell over. Then found I couldn’t just spring to my feet. Sucks to get old.

      The good old traction splint. Rarely see that taught anymore…Used it maybe 6 times in 28 years..

        State of Kommiecticut standing protocol for a closed femur fracture. Adult and pediatric versions. Taught in initial classes and refreshers. We do an in-house annual department medical refresher with it. I have personally only used it once on scene.
