Show full transcript for Head, Neck, and Back Injuries video

When it appears that someone has a head, neck, or back injury call EMS. Place a hand on the patient's forehead to prevent or limit moving the patient's neck. Check airway, breathing, and circulation. If stable, check for obvious bone deformities or breaks. Take precautions to assure the patient remains stable and immobile. As long as airway, breathing and circulation are good, continue to monitor the patient until EMS arrives.
