*  Update in acute respiratory distress syndrome - clinical ventilator management and prone ventilation | International Journal...
The acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a major cause of acute respiratory failure. Its development leads to high rates of mortality, as well as short- and long-term complications, such as physical and cognitive impairment. Key components of a strategy include avoiding lung overdistension by limiting tidal volumes and airway pressures, and the use of positive endexpiratory pressure with or without lung recruitment manoeuvres in patients with severe ARDS.In this review article, we describe updated concepts in ARDS. Specifically, we discuss the new definition of ARDS, its risk factors and pathophysiology, and current evidence regarding ventilation management, prone ventilation, and intervention required in refractory hypoxemia.. ...

*  An Optic Nerve at Risk and a Prolonged Surgery in the Prone Position:Time to Reconsider? | Anesthesiology | ASA Publications
One of the reasons for the difficulty in understanding ION is the lack of a suitable animal model that could mimic the conditions in which ION has been described in humans. Orbits in most mammals are different from humans in that they are not a closed circumferential bone structure. There is a gap between the frontal bone and the zygoma that is closed by a ligament. Furthermore, it is difficult to simulate an actual prone position in animals. While one may have some reservation with the model, especially regarding the role of venous congestion, this study is the first to reproduce the succession of events that may lead to ION, basically anemia, hypotension, and venous congestion, and analyze its effects on blood flow and oxygen delivery to the optic nerve and the brain. The results are fairly straightforward: "Compensatory mechanisms for porcine cerebral blood flow maintain stable oxygen delivery under specified conditions ...

*  Supine position - Wikipedia
The supine position (/səˈpaɪn/ or /ˈsuːpaɪn/) means lying horizontally with the face and torso facing up, as opposed to the prone position, which is face down. When used in surgical procedures, it allows access to the peritoneal, thoracic and pericardial regions; as well as the head, neck and extremities. Using anatomical terms of location, the dorsal side is down, and the ventral side is up, when supine. In scientific literature "semi-supine" commonly refers to positions where the upper body is tilted (at 45° or variations) and not completely horizontal. The decline in death due to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is said to be attributable to having babies sleep in the supine position. It is believed that in the prone position babies ...

Although specialists have diverging views as to the absolutely correct position of neonates and babies, they do however agree that the prone position should be avoided when the baby sleeps unattended. Placing the baby on the prone position has been abandoned in the last 20 years, following an extended campaign as it is blamed as one of the most important causes for the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome-SIDS. The frequency of this syndrome has been mitigated ever since babies do not fall prone for sleep. The babies' sleep in supine position on a relatively flat and firm mattress is suggested by the American Academy of Pediatrics to avoid as much as possible the sudden death syndrome. Side position can be applied by using a wedge in a relatively firm mattress ...

In the current prospective randomized study, we demonstrated that measuring OP in the prone position can lead to overestimation of CSF pressure compared with that measured in the LD position. In two-thirds of patients, we noted a difference of ≥2 cm H2O overestimation of OP in 1 or both of the prone positions compared with the standard LD position. These findings indicate that the OP should be recorded in the LD position whenever possible and that clinicians should be made aware when the OP reading is performed with the patient prone. If an OP is measured prone, tilting of the table so that the needle hub is at the level of the right atrium does not significantly affect the OP.. Previous studies have noted several factors that may increase OP during lumbar puncture, ...
*  Patent US5960494 - Facial support mask accommodating prone position surgery - Google Patents
During a surgical procedure being performed on a patient in the prone (face down) position, the patient's head and face are supported by a facial support mask having two or more contoured cushions that are independently inflatable and deflatable with respect to each other. The inflatable cushions are sequentially pressurized and depressurized, thus providing continuous, soft support for the patient's head, while alternatively relieving compression forces applied to pressure-sensitive facial areas. Alternately pressurizing and depressurizing the inflatable cushions shifts the location of compressive forces, thus relieving compressed tissues and permitting recovery of normal blood circulation in sensitive facial tissues. The patient's head, neck and face are not disturbed while the support cushions are cycled through various pressurization and depressurization states.

You'll be seen again in the clinic about two weeks after the operation and if all is well, the drops will be reduced over the following weeks.. Do I need to position myself face down after the operation?. Once at home, you may have to spend several hours during the day with your head held still and in a specific position, called posturing. The aim of lying or sitting face down is to keep the gas bubble in contact with the hole as much as possible, to encourage it to close. There's evidence that lying face down improves the success rate for larger holes, but it may not be needed for smaller holes. If you're asked to do some face-down positioning, your head should be positioned so the tip of your nose points straight down to the ground. This could be done sitting at a table or lying flat on your stomach on a bed or sofa. Your doctor will advise you on whether you need to do ...

An apparatus for supporting a patient in a prone position during surgery which allows the surgeon to adjust the relative positioning of the patient during surgery. The apparatus generally comprises a patient support structure rotatably mounted on an expandable framework which is connected to an elongate base by a pair of hydraulic lifts. The patient may initially be positioned on the table in a supine position and then rotated so as to be supported in a prone position by the patient support structure with the patient's abdomen pendulous and free. The hydraulic lifts are positioned at the ends of the base and allow one end of the expandable framework and the patient support structure to be raised or lowered with respect to the other end. The patient support ...

OUTLINE: Patients undergo planned breast-conservation surgery and placement of titanium clips to the four radial, the deep, and superficial margins of the excision cavity (for localization of tumor bed).. Within 2 weeks after surgery, patients undergo supine radiotherapy-planning CT scan as standard analysis. Patients then undergo a radiotherapy-planning CT scan in the prone position. Patients complete a linear analogue questionnaire after both scans designed to assess patient comfort and anxiety in each position. Patients then undergo multifunctional MRI (including dynamic contrast-enhancement MRI and diffusion-weighted MRI) of the ipsilateral breast in the prone position (≥ 3 weeks after surgery). If suspicious lesions ≥ 5 mm are found on MRI, patients are referred for a second-look ultrasound with biopsy (if lesion visible on ultrasound); where suspicious ...

*  Face Down in the Mainstream: Astonishing X-Men, Grumpy Vom is Grumpy « The Hooded Utilitarian
Pretty, isn't it?. But it was not enough.. For one thing, the art is very realistic. It's not picture perfect (blue lion mutants with glasses don't actually exist), but it's styled to be real. The artist likes to include things like red lines in the eyes, to show the craziness of the villain or spittle flying to show that people are shouting.. Unfortunately, the craziness comes off more like caaaaaaaarrrraaaaaziness and the spittle just seems sort of gross. The story is just-irritating, and the art could be so awesome, and yet it doesn't all mesh the way a visually told story should.. Instead of making me look forward to more or compensating, the art just reinforced those parts of the story that pissed me off. The basic plot is that the X-Men have found the source of some fake mutants. Their ex-fellow, Forge, has gone bastshit (as one does) and started to make fake mutants to combat evil warriors from an alternate dimension. They've denned Forge in his lair in order to stop him.. And Forge ...

Badly outnumbered, my father was directing men and shouting orders when he saw me. I was a boy of eight with an M16 in baggy fatigues. He looked down at me and said, "What the Hell are you doing here?" I shrugged my shoulders. "Well, take a position over there." He pointed to what was a circle of men around him.

At about 1 a.m. a runner approached with news from headquarters. The 9th Infantry Division was relieving us. We guided them into our bootprints, then filtered back through the lines to a staging area at the rear. From there, we were trucked 10 miles north and unloaded outside of Gourbesville.. A sinking feeling consumed me that morning. My gut told me that I'd be dead by sundown. I believed in God, but never put much stock into seeing or feeling the future. A little embarrassed, I tried to keep the thoughts to myself.. I was speaking with Sergeant Dean Warren when the enemy rain began to fall. Although out of my foxhole, I was lying in a prone position when a shell exploded overhead. The same red-hot shrapnel hit both of us, and I rolled on my back to see Dean's shirt soaked with blood. I screamed, 'Medic, help!' over and over again, and one arrived in short order. He patched Dean up, then turned to me.. 'We'd better get you bandaged up,' he ...
