Presented by Sharp Chula Vista Medical Center plus

Prone positioning has become a significant standard of care, not only for acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) patients, but for COVID-19 patients as well. Recent studies have demonstrated that pronation therapy may reduce mortality in ARDS patients when implemented early and applied for longer periods of time.

This class will provide didactic and hands-on training portions for nurses working in the Sharp Chula Vista ICU regarding the setup, maintenance and troubleshooting of the Rotoprone bed.  

By attending this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Review the prevalence of ARDS
  • Describe the physiology and pathophysiology of ARDS
  • Discuss the different treatment modalities for ARDS
  • Review the consequences to immobility
  • Articulate the mechanism of action with prone positioning
  • Review clinical research related to prone positioning
  • Incorporate the clinical research into evidence-based practice
  • Call to action — nurses role in improving outcomes
