MALMÖ, Sweden - Saturday, July 13th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine (2013;368:2159-2168) concluded that prone (chest down) positioning, used as an early intervention for patients with severe ARDS (SARDS), significantly decreased mortality by 50% after 28 days and 42% after 90 days (p<0.001). A significant reduction in ventilator-free days was also observed over similar periods for patients in the prone group.

The June 2013 publication described results of a multicenter, prospective, randomized, controlled trial involving 466 patients. Mortality was significantly lower in the group of ventilated SARDS patients who were placed in the prone position for at least 16 hours per day, compared to patients left in the supine (chest up) position. The incidence of complications did not differ significantly between the groups, except for the incidence of cardiac arrests, which was higher in the supine group.
