The purpose of this presentation is to describe and demonstrate the nursing care of the patient in traction. This objective is achieved with the aid of x-rays, diagrams, clinical patients, and a nurse. In this presentation the physiopathology of fractures and dislocations is described and the use of traction to align and immobilize the bony fragments and to prevent fracture deformity is discussed and illustrated. The application of skin traction is demonstrated step-by-step on a patient with a fracture of the femur and the nursing care of this patient which includes maintaining proper body alignment, checking the traction apparatus, observing the skin especially over the bony prominences for irritation or signs of infection, frequent back care, and providing special equipment such as sheepskin pads is described and demonstrated. The program next focuses on the patient in skeletal traction. The application of the traction by means of a Kirchner wire and Thomas splint is described and demonstrated. The program notes that the nurse should inspect the area around the wire or pin frequently, position towels, sheepskin pad, and pillows to relieve pressure areas, maintain body alignment, and provide frequent back care. The application and use of pelvic traction is presented. The importance of the correct fit of the pelvic girdle, gentle, smooth manipulation of the weights, proper alignment of the body, instruction of the patient regarding restrictions in movement, and the proper placement of personal items and signal device for easy access are stressed.
