Pediatric cervical spine traction

In an attempt to improve and standardize the use of cervical traction in pediatric patients, the authors have identified 49 best practice recommendations, which were generated by reaching consensus among a multidisciplinary group of pediatric spine experts using a modified Delphi method. Further study is required to determine if the implementation of these practices can lead to reduced complications and improved outcomes for children 1).
