Introduction to cervical soft collars by Queensland Ambulance Service 2015
Spinal Immobilisation_Evidence Review_170314_V3_EEM
Caveats: This is a prehospital implementation by the state wide ambulance service. It doesnt mean all Emergency departments are following suit and in fact some will continue to use hard collars/Philadelphia collars etc. Yes that means soft collar will be removed on arrival in some EDs and a hard collar placed. Aeromedical services in the state of Queensland are still considering what will be changed or not with regard to prehospital spinal immobilisation for aeromedical evacuation.
