Answer

Elevation is of great importance in the management of limb injuries. Lack of elevation may result in excessive edema, which may produce compartment syndrome and compromise local circulation, to the extent of threatening the viability of the limb.

Wounds on extremities should be immobilized and elevated with a sling to reduce edema, which may hamper normal activities.
