● Ensure arm board padding is at the same level as the table mattress.
● Position arm on the arm board ensuring arm is extended less than 90 degrees from patient’s side to avoid compression of the brachial plexus.
● Place arm in supinated or neutral position to decrease pressure on ulnar nerves. Place padding under the elbows.
● If, due to stiffness or contracture, the arm does not lie flat on the arm board, bolster the distal portion of the arm with an appropriate padding to provide support.
● Secure arm loosely to arm board using an appropriately sized, soft, non-occlusive wrist/arm strap.
Arms at side
● Support, protect and secure the full length of the arm using an arm protector (as applicable).
● The patient’s elbows and hands may be protected with extra padding.
● The draw sheet should be pulled up between the patient’s body and arm, placed over the patient’s arm, and tucked securely (but not too tightly) between the patient and the Operating Room (OR) bed.
● The draw sheet should extend from the mid upper arm to the fingertips.
● Patient’s elbows should be slightly flexed; wrists in neutral position; palms facing inward.
● Patient’s fingers should be in a position that is clear of the breaks in the Operating Room (OR) bed or other hazards.
● Flexed and secured across the body, with draw sheet or tape.
● Elbows should be padded and protected.
● Ensure IV lines and monitors are not kinked or trapped between the arm and the patient’s body.
