Twenty (46.5%) of the detected lesions in supine
position were [less than or equal to]10 mm (11 NME [55%] and 9 masses [45%]).
Fifty patients underwent supine
PCNL during the study period (group A).
Table 2 shows the mean IOP values obtained in sitting, standing, and supine
positions and statistical comparisons between these values using Wilcoxon test.
In examining the distribution of the means of the patients' hemodynamic parameters, [SPO.sub.2] and dyspnea severity in supine
, prone and orthopnea positions according to the times of intervention, variance analysis was used for the repeated measurements.
Patients are supine
for approximately 30 minutes and are essentially upright for the other 90 minutes prior to the delayed scan for pulmonary aspiration.
According to the authors, most pregnant women spend about 25 per cent of their sleep time in the supine
position, which may be a risk factor for stillbirth and low birth weight.
(12,17) Among patients with autonomic dysfunction, supine
hypertension commonly co-exists with NOH, and might exaggerate this overnight diuresis.
Results from the current study indicated that supine
position with different HOB elevations (15[degrees], 30[degrees], 45[degrees]) did not affect ICP and CPP, and these positions were safe for neurosurgical patients with different GCS scores.
After the initial assessments were completed, the subject lay supine
on an examining table for 30 min with both arms supported in the horizontal position (parallel to the floor).
First, children were kept quietly in the supine
position on the tilt table (HUT-821, Beijing Juchi, China) for 10 min, and their HR, blood pressure, and electrocardiograph were recorded by a Dash 2000 Multi-lead Physiological Monitor (General Electric, New York, USA).
Mendonca et al13 in his research study compared the outcomes of the two participants' positions (full left lateral position versus supine
position with 12 left lateral tilt) following combined spinal-epidural anesthesia using intrathecal hyperbaric bupivacaine and demonstrated decreased incidence of hypotension in the left lateral position (64%) in comparison to mothers positioned in the tilted supine
The advantages of percutaneous nephrolithotripsy (PCNL) performed in the supine
position are both of an anesthesiological and urological kind.
