Unnecessary immobilization exposes the patient to increased intracranial pressure and hinders a patent airway, increasing the risk of aspiration, dysphagia, skin ulcerations, pain, and tissue ischemia. Improper mobilization of the neck can lead to spinal injuries. Applying a small collar size may allow cervical flexion. Applying a large size can lead to cervical extension. Excessive closure of the collar: discomfort, respiratory distress, difficulty swallowing.
