Falls when climbing often result shoulder injuries. These are mostly a matter of bruising and pulled muscles. In the case of a harder impact or fall, more severe injuries such as dislocations or breaks can result. STEP 1: SECURE YOUR CLIMBING PARTNER The injured person may be hanging on the rope; if possible, lower them down to a safe place. STEP 2: IMMOBILIZE THE ARM Put the splinted arm in a sling so that the injured person does not have to hold the arm unsupported. This is done by tying a small knot in the 90° corner of a triangular sheet of cloth. This end serves as a pocket for the elbow. One end of the triangle is now fed carefully under the injured arm and tied behind the neck to the other end to form a sling. The fingers should also be inside the sling. STEP 3: MAKE AN EMERGENCY CALL It is definitely the end of the tour. Make an emergency call by dialing 112 to enable speedy evacuation and medical treatment. STEP 4: POSITION THE PATIENT COMFORTABLY AND WRAP THEM UP WARMLY The injured person should be positioned comfortably and kept warm; take good psychological care of them until a rescue team arrives.
