Slip it in a sling

8 TRI­AN­GU­LAR BAN­DAGE

Go! Drive and Camp Camp Guide - - Safety -

You’ll need a sling to sup­port a bro­ken col­lar­bone or arm and keep ev­ery­thing in place. The eas­i­est way to de­vise one in an emer­gency is by means of a tri­an­gu­lar ban­dage. Sim­ply let the in­jured limb lie in the mid­dle of the ban­dage and tie a knot be­hind the per­son’s neck with the two cor­ners.
