We would like your opinion on this question! As I am sure you are aware, anybody who has ever completed a first aid course will have been taught how to apply a sling using a triangular bandage. My question is this; Are slings still as relevant/useful today as they once were? Points to consider: 1. The casualty will usually place an injured arm in the most comfortable position for themselves. 2. Putting the arm in a sling will require additional movement from the position the arm is now in. Usually movement = pain! 3. Not considering remote rescue situations, does the sling offer any advantages over manual support given that generally, a hospital is relatively close by. 4. Would you have the confidence to apply a sling with only a basic first aid course done? Let us know your own thought's below!
