My wife smacked her arm hard on the edge of a table. I suspected it was fractured, but she refused to see any doctor accept our family doctor who was out of his office for the weekend. I talked her into wearing the SAM splint until Monday rolled around. I cut the splint and formed it to fit and support her wrist, applied a cotton sleeve and wrapped it with Coban. She got an x-ray the following Monday and had indeed fractured her wrist. The doc said it was a good thing she wore a splint as the fracture had not moved. If it had she would have needed pins to hold the fracture while it healed. He even said she could just wear the splint if she did not want to wear a cast. I restocked the first aid kit with a new SAM splint as soon as we got home.
Perfect for a young kid. Not too big to have extra all over the place.
I use these in first aid bags to be shipped out to deployed teams and they are lightweight and fit nicely into a small bag. The fact that they can be bent as needed and do not have to be removed for radiographs is a must!
