The Laerdal Stifneck select extrication collar consists of four different collars in a single piece construction which requires no assembly.
Care providers can easily administer proper sizing and application by measuring the casualties neck (using the finger sizing method) and then, using one of the four different sizing options which are clearly marked on the back of the collar, can adjust the collar to size and lock it in place before finally placing it on the patient. The locking mechanism ensures symmetrical adjustments, and gives providers the peace of mind the collar is locked safely into place.
The Stifneck Select has an oversized tracheal opening for advanced airway procedures and pulse checks, as well as a rear panel opening for c-spine palpitations, ventilation, drainage and visualization of the neck.
For paediatric patients there is a specially sized Pediatric Stifneck Select collar with 3 different sizing options. This enables providers to adapt care to any patient. The Stifneck Select Pediatric is also fitted with a pink strap for easy recognition in an EMS kit bag. Both collars pack flat.
