Prone position (PP) in awake, non-intubated patients with respiratory failure is a physiology-based ventilatory strategy that improves oxygenation and may decrease the need for intubation and invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). Introduction During the pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which produces coronavirus disease...Read more
