Limb Injuries

  • Observation invaluable
  • Ask the casualty what has happened to get information on symptoms
  • Check for signs and symptoms of a fracture and/or a dislocation
  • Immobilise if suspected fracture and/or dislocation
  • Check function if injury is soft tissue related
  • Where possible the casualty should remove themselves from the field of play without assitance and should refer themselves to the NHS if further treatment is necessary
