1. Scope

1.1 This guide establishes minimum standards for devices, designated here as full body spinal immobilization device(s) (FBSID), commonly known as long boards. The FBSID is designed to be used as the base structure for immobilization and transport of a patient with potential spine or spinal cord injury by emergency medical service personnel.

1.2 This guide does not identify specific degrees of limitation of motion achieved by placement of a FBSID on a patient. Definitive requirements for immobilization of the spine, and, in particular, the degree of limitation associated with the use of a FBSID, has not been established in the medical literature.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
