Defects of traditional fixing methods
■Because of the poor setting effect, all traditional methods lack rigid structure, and cannot make the fractured end of the assisting bone and the surrounding normal ribs form a rigid plate-like structure at the fracture site, and it is difficult to restrict the fractured end of the assisting bone with breathing, coughing and other movements. The displacement, so the analgesic effect is not ideal.
■Limiting breathing movement The traditional adhesive tape and chest strap fixation method to help bone fractures, while fixing the material wall, also causes the breathing movement of the injured side to be cracked, the coughing action is inhibited, and it is easy to cause atelectasis. It can even aggravate the invagination of the floating chest wall and lung damage, limit lung expansion, make breathing more difficult, and severely cause age-related encephalitis.
■Causing skin allergies The traditional tape fixation method is not suitable for many patients, and it is easy to cause skin allergies. Because of the shortcomings of Chuanhang's prescribed treatment methods, the current status of treatment for bone fractures is taking analgesics and bed rest.
