More Time to Care – when treating Covid-19 patients
Proning of respiratory patients is often an effective intervention used as a treatment in intensive care units. To turn a patient from a supine to a prone position can be a demanding process which involves a lot of resources when it comes to both time and protective equipment. It often takes 4 – 6 persons to fulfil the task.
However, using the right techniques and the right tools prone and side-lying positioning can be done safely and effectively with less staff needed.
As inspiration Guldmann Consulting has created a video, showing how to do this. Contact us if you want to learn more.
All slings used in the video are disposable slings and all of the cast are healthy and well. The video was made in our Guldmann test setting.
