Drape one corner of the cloth
over the shoulder on the
uninjured side of the person,
underneath the arm. The tip
of the triangle should be
facing away from the person’s
body and the largest portion
of the triangle should be
close to the person’s arm.



Lift the bottom corner up over
the injured arm and onto the
other shoulder. Make sure the
bottom part of the cloth is supporting
the injured arm at just
above its natural height.



Tie the two ends of the cloth
together behind the neck. Tie
off one overhead knot, and
then another, making sure
that the patient is comfortable
all the while.
