Thanks for your suggestion Kate. We have a proning policy using the Hovermatt for Theatres however this is not always the correct position for the procedure-more the Swimmer’s position ( i.e. one arm above the head the other at the side) The difficulty arises when staff need to transfer the patient back their own bed while sedated.
Cheers
