FROM LAST TIME


First-aid lesson? Barbara Andrews Olmsted ’43 says she recog- nizes Shirley Butterfield Jackson ’43 at the right, holding the “pa- tient’s” foot, and herself at left, holding the knee. She hazards, “It must’ve been a PE class,” but that’s as much as she’s able to recall. Maggie Lynch Lohmann ’80, a nurse and ski-patrol instructor, says, “The ladies are ‘treating’ a femur fracture with a Thomas Half-Ring traction device. I


learned to use one over 20 years ago as a new ski patroller.” She guesses the scene was a Red Cross standard first-aid course. Fellow nurse Joe Napolitano ’85, who is a professor of nursing, agrees that this is a classic femur- fracture splinting exercise and adds, “While there are newer commercial devices that can be easier to put on, we still teach this skill in such courses as Advanced Trauma Care for Nurses.”
