If a head, neck or back injury is suspected, do not move the person unless it is necessary to provide care for life-threatening conditions. A jaw thrust should be used to open the airway when a spinal injury is suspected. However, if the airway is not able to be opened adequately with the jaw thrust, use a head-tilt chin-lift to open the airway. For an unconscious, non-breathing person it is more important to have an open airway rather than consideration of a potential spinal injury.
