The reason there isnt much worry about infants when it comes to clavicle fracture is that they have remarkable recovery since their bones are constantly being shaped..so any alignment watsoever will result in a good one.>>for adults and older kids not so much so u can use either figure 8 or arm sling..one is not superior to another..

don't worry! you wont find both of them as options in the real exam, just because neither of them has any proven advantage over the other. These guys maintain their standards!
