• improves
  • Prone positioning improves ventilation-perfusion matching (transferring delivered oxygen into the bloodstream more efficiently) and keeps alveolar units open and evenly distributed at end-expiration (improving gas exchange and preventing ventilator-induced lung injury ). (pulmccm.org)
  • compared with the supine
  • The relative risk of death in the prone group as compared with the supine group was 0.84 at the end of the study period (95 percent confidence interval, 0.56 to 1.27), 1.05 at the time of discharge from the intensive care unit (95 percent confidence interval, 0.84 to 1.32), and 1.06 at six months (95 percent confidence interval, 0.88 to 1.28).

  • Procedure
  • The purpose of this study was to establish and evaluate a new procedure for thoracoscopic esophagectomy in a prone position using a preceding anterior approach to make esophagectomy easier to perform. (sages.org)
  • CONCLUSIONS: A thoracoscopic esophagectomy in a prone position for esophageal cancer using a preceding anterior approach is a safe and feasible procedure. (sages.org)
  • significantly
  • however cerebral desaturation in the prone position was significantly more common even when adjusted for surgery time and the occurrence of intraoperative hypotension. (duhnnae.com)
  • pilots
  • None of the designs were ever completed due to its cancellation, though some wooden airframes and a single mockup were constructed in 1944 to provide prone-position training for pilots. (wikipedia.org)
  • moderate
  • In agreement with the findings reported by Michelet and coworkers [ 13 ], previous clinical investigations [ 6 - 9 ] found moderate but significant rises in IAP without impairment in cardiovascular function, renal function, or hepatosplanchnic function during short periods of prone positioning with air-cushioned mattresses.

  • lung
  • The initial hypothesis was that better perfusion of the baby lung, located in the dependent lung regions after prone positioning, would provide advantages in gas exchange. (unimi.it)
  • upright position
  • lying on their stomachs rather than seated in a normal upright position. (wikipedia.org)
  • Comfort bikes typically incorporate such features as front suspension forks, seat post suspension with wide plush saddles, and drop-center, angled North Road style handlebars designed for easy reach while riding in an upright position. (wikipedia.org)
  • mmHg
  • The terms "PaO 2 response" and "PaCO 2 response" represented responses that resulted in increases in the PaO 2 /FiO 2 ratio of ≥ 20 mmHg and decreases in PaCO 2 of ≥ 1 mmHg, respectively, 8 to 12 hours after first placement in the prone position. (kjim.org)
  • provide
  • They typically have a modified mountain bike frame with a tall head tube to provide an upright riding position, 26-inch wheels, and 1.75 or 1.95-inch (45-50 mm) smooth or semi-slick tires. (wikipedia.org)
