Pad the splints to prevent pressure and discomfort to the victim; prepare the triangular bandages. 5.   Assess the pulse and sensation below the injury. 6.   Measure the splint to make sure it is the right size. The splint should be long enough to immobilize the entire bone plus the joints above and below the fractured site. 7.   Splint the injury in the position you found it. Immobilize the entire injured extremity plus the joints above and below the fractured site. 8.   Secure the splints with the bandages starting from the distal end of the splint to the proximal end. In slipping the bandage under the extremity, place the bandage over a separate splint and slide the splint under the extremity. 9.   Splint firmly enough to immobilize but not tightly enough to stop blood circulation or prevent lung expansion. In securing the chest with a bandage, ask the victim to inhale deeply or if unconscious, use three finger breadths as allowance for lung expansion before tying the bandage. 10.   Make sure that the bandages have no loose ends. For added protection, put some padding in between splints and the treated extremity. 11.   Reassess the pulse and sensation below the injury after you apply the splint and evaluate these signs every 15 minutes to make sure that the splint is not impeding circulation.    Disaster Management And Preparedness Evaluation Tool For Students Revised 2013 Page 4 Moving/Transporting the Victim (5 Points) Using the Spine Board Yes No Remarks 1.   The long board within arm’s reach kneel  at the victim’s side, reach across the victim and grab his or her shoulder and hip.
