Positive effects of prone positioning for COVID-19 patients

In January this year, the World Health Organization made a conditional recommendation that awake, severely ill patients with COVID-19 requiring supplemental oxygen or non-invasive ventilation would benefit from prone positioning.

A new positioning device offered by clinical equipment specialist ANETIC AID is specifically designed to address this – relieving pressure on the diaphragm to encourage respiratory function. Part of the Trulife Elite range, its construction is light weight pressure relieving foam and it was developed for patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) – a type of respiratory failure characterised by the rapid onset of widespread inflammation of the lungs. Conforming to the body shape of a patient in the prone position, it comes in a combination of shapes which can be configured separately to accommodate patients whatever their physique. It also creates airflow around the patient’s body. As well as its application in ICU, it can also be used during surgery.
