Do I need to remove the SAM Splint™ during an x-ray?
The SAM Splint™ is radiolucent, almost invisible on x-ray. It should NOT be removed for radiographs (x-rays). It is designed to function through the extreme ranges of normal ambien temperatures. It is waterproof but not fireproof. The closed pore EVA foam will not flash when exposed to flame, but will begin to melt and eventually ignite after approximately 8 seconds.
The foam used in the SAM Splint™ was selected for its “cleanability”. Whether cut or used intact, the splint can be cleaned with antiseptic soap and water or with almost any protocol cleaning solution. We suggest an inexpensive 1:9 mixture of commercially available bleach and water. The closed pore polyurethane foam which promotes effective cleaning does not, however, absorb or allow passage of air or perspiration. This does not present a problem during short-term use. If, however, the splint is to be maintained for prolonged periods (hours to days), some absorbent material such as cotton cloth, cast padding, or double tubular stockinette should be placed between the splint and patient to prevent skin maceration and odor.
