    Thanks for posting such great videos. We have nurses and ER techs who do some splinting in our ED and I try to think about the best way to teach them when they are learning the tricks. These videos are great and I’ll certainly share this page with them.
    One thing I’ve started doing is using cling gauze/wrap as my outermost layer in lieu of flannel or tensor, particularly for the gutters or thumb spicas. The real estate is limited between the fingers and I find this makes the splint far less bulky and generally more comfortable for patients, especially kids.
    Great stuff as usual, Rob.

    Rob- excellent videos! They have been the “go to” for my medics. What is your email address? I can’t find it on the website. Thanks. BB

    Hey I’m a Peds EM fellow and have been using your videos to teach myself how to split. Your videos are the best on all the internet. I’d really like to know how to do a radial gutter splint. Is this something you would be able to show all your viewers?

      Hi Brianna,
      The orthoglass has some padding underneath that might do the job, but I like to add extra protection with webril and a stockinette. Does that address the question you were asking?
