Twitter discussion today about how to stabilise a pelvic fracture with a concurrent femoral shaft fracture. How do you do it? SAM, T-Pod or sheet for pelvis? Donway, CT6, or Kendrick for femur? Can you do both? Or should you just tie the legs together, use a simple splint, or put them in a vac-mat? Do prehospital femoral traction devices destabilise pelvic fractures? Do you leave pre-hospital femoral traction devices on in ED? How long can you leave them on for? Or should you convert ASAP to skin traction? Lots of questions!
