Proning the Conscious COVID-19 Patient

It is important to remember to prone the conscious COVID-19 patients who are at high risk of impending acute hypoxemic respiratory failure. Maintaining the supine position in the COVID-19 patient, even with the head of the bed elevated may be detrimental. It is imperative to closely monitor and follow your organization's guidelines.


Are you and your team proning the conscious COVID-19 patient?
