Abstract

Maxillofacial trauma is common and may lead to haemorrhage that is associated with actual or impending airway compromise. This study briefly discusses the aetiology of midfacial haemorrhage and describes a simple effective technique of midface splintage for haemorrhage control, which may be applied in the prehospital and emergency environments. This technique has been used successfully by the London Helicopter Emergency Medical Service.
