Spinal/Cervical Injury

If you suspect spinal or cervical injury, do not perform a head tilt/chin lift. Open the airway with the “Jaw Thrust Maneuver”. With the heals of your palms, stabilize the victim’s head. Then place the middle two fingers of each hand, under the bony projection of the jaw below each ear. Then thrust the jaw upward without moving the victim’s head. This will effectively open the victim’s airway.

Online CPR
Cardiac arrest takes precedence over all other injuries. A victim may survive a broken neck but they will not survive cardiac arrest in not treated quickly. We recommend making your assessment, if possible, without moving the victim if you suspect spinal or cervical injury. If a victim is in a car, you should still be able to see signs of breathing and circulation. If not, CPR must be done on a hard, flat surface to be effective. I hope you enjoyed our Online CPR course.

When do I move them
Do I move a child who has been hit by a car or another possible back or neck injury? It says that cpr must be done on a flat surface but I was told not to move someone if I suspect a neck injury.
