Can you move a person with a suspected spinal injury?

First aid myth: never move a suspected spinal injury!

People are concerned that moving some one with a suspected spinal injury might cause more damage.

And they are right to be concerned, but keeping the airway clear of vomit or other dangers such as tides coming in, fire or avalanche risk for our outdoor courses may mean you have to. 

We cover spinal log roles and other realistic problems you might encounter on our three day First Aid at Work and two day Outdoor First Aid.
