Semi-recumbent position leads to improvement of gas exchange and lung mechanics in patients suffering from ALI or ARDS. Prone positioning leads to similar effects. To date, no data on the combination of these two positioning measures exist. The investigators hypothesize that head elevation in prone position leads to improvement in gas exchange and lung mechanics.

Beneficial effect of prone position in ARDS on mortality is not linked to increase in PF ratio. It is probably due to improvement in ventilation-perfusion ratio (V/Q). Volumetric capnograp...
We hypothesize that for large pendulous breasts, breast irradiation in supine and prone position are equivalent with regard to coverage of the PTV, but with a better dose homogeneity in pr...

Breast MRI is performed in prone position which causes a number of questions. Indeed, the correlation with mammography and echography and the identification of preoperative lesions can be ...
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of position on lumbar lordosis (LL) in adult spinal deformity (ASD) patients. METHODS The authors evaluated the radiographic data of ASD ...
It is very rare but challenging to perform emergency airway management for accidental extubation in a patient whose head and neck are fixed in the prone position when urgently turning the patient to t...
The aim of this study was to clarify the differences between thoracoscopic esophagectomy in the left decubitus position (LP) and in the prone position (PP) in terms of short-term perioperative outcome...
It remains unclear how prone positioning improves survival in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Using serial computed tomography (CT), we previously reported that 'unstable' inflation, i.e. ...
Patients with head and neck cancer have changes in body composition and resting energy expenditure (REE) related to significant inflammatory processes. We investigated REE and body composition in a po...
The posture of an individual lying face down.
A clinical syndrome defined by MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA symptoms; persistent elevation in the ST segments of the ELECTROCARDIOGRAM; and release of BIOMARKERS of myocardial NECROSIS (e.g., elevated TROPONIN levels). ST segment elevation in the ECG is often used in determining the treatment protocol (see also NON-ST ELEVATION MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION).
Posture while lying with the head lower than the rest of the body. Extended time in this position is associated with temporary physiologic disturbances.
High molecular weight, insoluble polymers which contain functional groups that are capable of undergoing exchange reactions (ION EXCHANGE) with either cations or anions.
Traumatic injuries to the ACCESSORY NERVE. Damage to the nerve may produce weakness in head rotation and shoulder elevation.
