BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Place the RAP Thoracotomy Splint on the operating table and have the patient lie on top of the Splint. A drape can be placed over the Splint if necessary. Move the beans that are inside the bag around the patient to form a supporting mold. Connect a suction tube to the Splint. As the air is expelled, make sure the beans are holding the patient in the correct position.
We recommend that the suction is kept connected during an operation to ensure the Splint is kept firm. For short periods, the suction can be removed, provided the plug is inserted to prevent air going back into the Splint.
Monitor the Splint in case it starts to lose its rigidity, and if necessary reconnect to a suction tube.
