"Hi Joe, I guess we can continue this back and forth forever. We just can't prove one way or another. For every article for immobilisation, someone can put up an argument against that study, and visa versa. If we look at the studies, there are…"

Hi Anthony.

I closely followed the discussion 'KED's vs. / plus LBB's' and used the opportunity to download your publication about proper immmobilization techniques. This is really great stuff and thank you for publishing it to everyone. We are traditionally using vaccuum mattresses here in Germany and introduced Spineboards in our agency just three years ago. So your manual will help us very much to compensate our low experience with this tool.
Best regards
Juergen
