This 60-minute webinar will feature expert Michelle Lemmons, OR Clinical Educator, as she discusses an overview, specifics, guideline recommendations, and risks of the supine, prone, and Fowler’s positions. Positioning patients for surgical procedures in the operating room is a complex and multifaceted duty. While mostly determined by the procedure needs, the case, surgeon, time, and patient-specific information must be accounted for. Throughout this presentation, we will detail general considerations for surgical positioning, re-visit the published guideline recommendations, and discuss risks and prevention of risks for the supine, prone, and Fowler’s positions. Injury prevention and emergency preparation are some of our best tools to help patients have successful surgical outcomes.
