Children need cervical collars designed specifically for them. Aspen understands this and offers five sizes of pediatric cervical collars, allowing you to provide the highest level of patient care.One of the most popular is the Aspen Pediatric Cervical Collar.
Aspen Pediatric Cervical Collars Features:
The five Aspen® Pediatric Collars automatically conforms to provide a custom fit for all children. Collars are also available with a set of replacement pads.
*The Vista® Collar could be used for larger sizes.
The Aspen® Pediatric line is proud to offer three pediatric sizes and two infant sizes, as only a properly fit collar can provide effective motion restriction.
Safe for Delicate Skin
Aspen® Pediatric Collars minimize the potential for skin breakdown, while maintaining superior motion restriction. The FlexTabs™ have been designed to spread support across the contact surfaces, eliminating “hot spots” that can lead to skin breakdown.
The PD4 and PD5 have an occipital support strap on the back panel that when adjusted provides a custom cradle for the back of the head.
Gently by Design
The pads are made of breathable, open cell foam with a soft, hypoallergenic cotton lining which keeps the skin clean, cool and comfortable.
1. Chin-Dots Hidden?
The Chin piece plastic should be flush with the end of the chin, hiding the “Chin-Dots” indicator on the chin pad.
2. Hook and Loop Straps Past the Mark?
Remove all slack. Evenly tighten and re-tighten the straps, insuring the hook and loop straps extend past the green mark for a secure fit and front/back panel overlap.
3. FlexTabs™ Bent?
If the collar has been properly sized and tightened, the FlexTabs™ will be “loaded,” or bent, which disperses pressure. Note: The inner trach bar should never touch the throat.
