You will notice the casualty is lying on
his side, supported by one leg and one arm. In the case of head or ear injury,
keep the injured side down.
Where there are fractures in the upper or
lower body, where the casualty is lying in a confined space, or where it is not
possible to use the bent limbs as supports, the Recover Position can be modified.
In such cases, a rolled blanket can be laid down the front of the body. This
method can also be used to transport a casualty on a stretcher in the Recover
N.B.: When moving the casualty, always do so as a total unit i.e. keep the casualty's head and trunk aligned at all times.
