Respiratory Physiology of Prone Positioning With and Without Inhaled Nitric Oxide Across the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome Severity Spectrum
Crisis Management, Pulmonary,
From Critical Care Explorations. In this observational study, the authors found that prone positioning improves oxygenation across the acute positive respiratory distress syndrome severity spectrum, irrespective of supine respiratory system compliance, end-expiratory pressure, or body mass index. There was a greater relative benefit among patients with more severe disease. Prone positioning confers an additive benefit in oxygenation among patients treated with inhaled nitric oxide.
