We regularly prone our patients. It works well for the most part however we are finding more and more that these patients end up with terrible presure sores over the fore head and chin especially where the ET tape lies.
I have sourced a type of "frame" for the patients head that acts as a pressure relieving device.
However, I wondered if any of you have any experience with products for this as the market seems to be limited to this device only.
I have googled various descriptions of the proning word and have not found any match so far.
I notice that the majority of this website is for American based nurses so i am not sure if i have put this in the right section, could any one advise about talking to UK based nurses please.
