Clearing C-Spine next topic of seminar at SOLO Feb. 26

CONWAY — In the field of Wilderness Medicine and street medicine, there is much debate, confusion, and even fear as to whether to clear someone's spine to avoid having the patient being fully immobilized in a litter or potentially being walked out or transported without total spinal packaging.

Spinal clearing is part of New Hampshire's "street medicine" protocols as well as a topic in all wilderness medicine classes.

Dr. Frank Hubbell, a member of the N.H. Medical Control Board and chair of their subcommittee on Wilderness Medicine Protocols will discuss when the clearing of the spine is appropriate and how to properly do so through an explanation of spinal anatomy and physiology and current standards of care for spinal cord managment, 7-9 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 26 at SOLO in Conway.
