Towards evidence based emergency medicine: best BETs from the Manchester Royal Infirmary. Cervical spine radiography in alert asymptomatic blunt trauma patients

, : Towards evidence based emergency medicine: best BETs from the Manchester Royal Infirmary. Cervical spine radiography in alert asymptomatic blunt trauma patients. Emergency Medicine Journal 19(1): 47-48

A short cut review was carried out to establish whether a normal cervical spine radiograph excludes bony cervical spine injury in alert, asymptomatic trauma patients. Altogether 232 papers were found using the reported search, of which six presented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The author, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results and study weaknesses of these best papers are shown in table 2. A clinical bottom line is stated.
