  • The current roadmap to physical patient restraint is at best unclear. Our job as emergency service professionals requires us to deal with complex problems. These problems can be compounded when a patient or injured subject resists or refuses care due to the neurological impact of their medical problem or injury. Our initial education touches on the subject, but offers little in the way of practical skills. When describing a physical restraint procedure our protocols and training will typically tell us where to begin and where to end, but offer little insight into helping us understand how to get there. This course offers a basic, skill-focused description of how to effectively restrain a combative patient, which incorporates multiple situational variables.
