How to Make a Splint/ Fix a Broken Bone




Introduction: How to Make a Splint/ Fix a Broken Bone

Hey guys In this instructable I will be teaching you how to make a splint it is quick and easy and great for survival it situations. This split will make sure your arm has minimal movement so if you arm is broken it won't get worse it will also help with the pain, to minimize movement even more I recommend a triangle bandage.

Step 1: Materials

For this you will need 2 sticks and some gauze wrap. You can also use duct tape. I will be doing this for a broken arm but you could also use it for a broken leg with longer sticks

Step 2: Getting Started

First you will take the two sticks and place them on either side of your arm.

Step 3: Wrapping the Gauze

After you place the sticks on either Side of your arm, take the gauze and wrap it around the sticks and your arm.

Step 4:

If you are wrapping this on yourself by your self it can be a challenge, so I would recommend starting out with a knot.

Step 5: Wrapping

Make sure to wrap it very tight, and than if you want you can finish it off with a knot.

Step 6: Finished

You are now finished. Enjoy! And stay safe!
