Sam pelvic binders

OBJECTIVES: Pelvic circumferential compression devices are commonly used in the acute treatment of pelvic fractures for reduction of pelvic volume and initial stabilisation of the pelvic ring. There have been reports of catastrophic soft-tissue breakdown with their use. The aim of the current investigation was to determine whether various pelvic circumferential compression devices exert different amounts of pressure on the skin when applied with the force necessary to reduce the injury...

BACKGROUND: Data has been collected from suspected major trauma patient clinical records since the launch of the major trauma system in the South West in April 2012. In an internal report it was identified that 50% of overtriaged suspected major trauma patients were attributed to a suspected pelvic fracture. The National Consensus Statement on the Pre-Hospital Management of Pelvic Fractures provided a flow diagram depicting the appropriate application of the pelvic binder. METHOD: An audit was conducted looking at all suspected major trauma patients from April 2012-March 2013...

BACKGROUND: Pelvic circumferential compression devices are designed to stabilize the pelvic ring and reduce the volume of the pelvis following trauma. It is uncertain whether pelvic circumferential compression devices can be safely applied for all types of pelvic fractures because the effects of the devices on the reduction of fracture fragments are unknown. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of circumferential compression devices on the dynamic realignment and final reduction of the pelvic fractures as a measure of the quality of reduction...

INTRODUCTION: The role of pelvic circumferential compression devices (PCCDs) is to temporarily stabilise a pelvic fracture, reduce the volume and tamponade the bleeding. Tissue damage may occur when PCCDs are left in place longer than a few hours. The aim of this randomised clinical trial was to quantify the pressure at the region of the greater trochanters (GTs) and the sacrum, induced by PCCDs in healthy volunteers. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a crossover study, the Pelvic Binder(®), SAM-Sling(®) and T-POD(®) were applied successively onto 80 healthy participants in random order...

BACKGROUND: Data on the efficacy and safety of non-invasive Pelvic Circumferential Compression Devices (PCCDs) is limited. Tissue damage may occur if a continuous pressure on the skin exceeding 9.3 kPa is sustained for more than two or three hours. The aim of this study was to gain insight into the pressure build-up at the interface, by measuring the PCCD-induced pressure when applying pulling forces to three different PCCDs (Pelvic Binder((R)) , SAM-Sling ((R)) and T-POD((R)) ) in a simplified model...
