Abstract

in English, Spanish

OBJECTIVES:

To measure cervical spine movement during removal of a motorcycle helmet by health care professionals.

MATERIAL AND METHODS:

Observational study using biomechanical inertial sensors to detect movement in the spinal column during removal of helmets.

RESULTS:

Thirty-four emergency medicine specialists and nurses participated. The mean (SD) rotation was 1.14° (0.82°) to the left and 3.30° (1.69°) to the right (P<.001). Mean flexion was 9.82° (7.46°) and mean extension was 6.23° (6.86°) (P<.001). Mean lateral displacement was 5.73° (2.97°) to the left and 5.62° (8.22°) to the right (P=.678). The removal maneuvers took a mean of 70 seconds (4 seconds).

CONCLUSION:

Helmet removal was completed in an average of 70 seconds with flexion and rotation mainly toward the side where the professional supporting the head was positioned.
