Topic: Body Repositioning

We asked LINET:

Q: How does EIT relate to Multicare Lateral Therapy

A: It shows you changes in L/R lung ventilation in the patient when the Multicare is tilted to 30 degrees

 

 

Q: How does the Virtuoso Pro change the approach to patient proning?

A: It allows for the removal of most pillows given it absorbs the patient into the mattress to reduce heat, improve pressure injury prevention and enhance patient comfort

 

 

Q: How can lateral tilt help when turning or proning a patient?

A: There is a large reduction in forces required to turn/roll the patient when lateral tilt is deployed to substantially reduce manual handling.
