OREGON SPINE SPLINT II (OSS II)

This spinal immobilization/extrication device is the only device of it's type that meets all of the established criteria for immobilizing a seated patient. An ideal companion for the SKED® Stretcher System, when properly used the OSS II provides for safe removal of patients from injury sights without doing further damage to the spine. The unique criss-crossing shoulder strap design provides superior immobilization without restricting breathing and, for clavicle fractures, can be re-configured to retract and immobilize the shoulders. The OSS II is designed to provide easy access to the patient's chest or abdominal area for treatment or diagnostic procedures. It can be used in place of a conventional short backboard and as a hip or leg splint. The OSS II includes a shoulder board not found in similar devices, which can be used to prevent compression of the shoulders when using a flexible stretcher.

The OSS II folds into an extremely small package and slips inside a rolled-up SKED® Stretcher in its backpack bag, adding no volume to the SKED Rescue System package. When used with the SKED® Stretcher the OSS II ensures critical spinal rigidity during transport, whether carried or lifted. Available in International Orange or OLIVE DRAB. Green w/Camouflage bag. Made in USA.

Each Oregon Spine Splint II (OSS II) comes with:

OSS II Main Body - this durable device includes colour coded straps and buckles, crossing upper chest straps and liberal use of hook and loop material for reliable connection of immobilizing accessories.

Collar Strap - Designed to immobilize the lower part of the head. It is customarily used over a cervical collar (see below).

Forehead Restraint - another Skedco innovation that employs disposable replacement non-slip pads (Dispose-A-Pads) to avoid possible slipping and loss of immobilization. Extra wide and generous amounts of hook and loop material eliminates the need for taping the forehead to the device.

Head Pads - This set of one double and two single 3/4 inch thick head pads are used to maintain proper spacing between the board and the head. When the patient is laid down it does not compress.

Dispose-A-Pads - Ten disposable pads are provided for the Forehead Restraint strap. The pads are replaceable after each use to prevent possible contamination by body fluids.

Carrying Case - A durable cordura pack with zippered pocket, for the OSS II and all components.

Instructions - The most comprehensive instructions provided with any device sold today. Composed with heavy input by leaders in the emergency medical field, these instructions are more comprehensive than found in most textbooks. Video available.
