When using such padded fiberglass splinting material as Ortho-Glass, it is helpful to wet only one side of the splint with approximately 4 oz of water. Apply the dry side to the patient. This will harden just as quickly and prevents adverse skin reaction by keeping the patient’s skin dry. — MICHAEL PERALA, PA-C, AT-C, MA, Richland, Wash. (145-14)
