The Hammock Carry
Transcript of The Hammock Carry
How do you carry it out?
Reach under the victim and grasp one wrist on the opposite rescuer. The rescuers on the ends will only be able to grasp one wrist on the opposite rescuer. The rescuers with only one wrist grasped will use their free hands to support the victim's head and feet/legs. Then the rescuers will squat and lift the victim on the command of the person nearest the head.
How is it helpful?
The Hammock Carry, or the Three-man Carry, is helpful when the patient is unconscious or cannot move and needs to be moved.
