Probably none.

At best, soft cervical collars.

10 x 30 trauma dressings and Kerlix. (I think I butchered spelling of Kerlix.) You will need a short spine board with head blocks to go with this.

As Steve said, foam pieces with stockinette over it, collars were just coming out,and standards were being upgraded,no head blocks here till years later, we used a sand bag on each side of the head.

Scott its a wooden thingamagiggy approx.6' long with slots on the side to hog-tie I mean to secure a pt with possible Cervical spine injuries which by todays standards seems to mean everyone who has had a trauma,nowadays they are made of strong plastic in a wide array of colors and configurations but on a windy icy day can those sons of gun ever scoot down the highway and try carrying one on a windy day upright to the scene.

I remember seeing a 70's documentary using rolled towels to immobilize the head on a backboard but nothing for the neck.

the rolled towels- sand bags ext and a large amount of tape were all that was used. the back board was considered a all body splint. C spine was not considered as a separate stabilization. the man in the 57 was a fall off a ladder. inures taped up tossed on the gurney and away we go. we the figured out that back boarding may be a benefit then you might see a short board used. Johnny and Gage showed us how to do that.
