Patient Proning Technique

Proning ventilated patients with complications, such as Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) due to COVID-19 has been proven to be beneficial. Proning a ventilated patient aids in “opening up” the lungs and increased oxygenation.

There are a number of proning techniques used by clinicians utilizing different methods and equipment. Here is one technique using two flat repositioning slings. In this case, two Alpha Modalities TSLIT Repositioning Slings are used. The material is comfortable for the patient and does not have any adverse effects on the patient’s skin. This technique is currently being used at a large teaching hospital in the Northwest.
