Positioning the patient under resuscitation conditions

F. Logemann

In many hospital areas, routine procedures have to be left behind in situations requiring resuscitation. Together with the emergency room, the operating theatre is particularly frequently affected. The positioning of the patient must support the resuscitation measures in all key aspects.

Examples for surgical interventions for resuscitation of patients:

Staunching acute bleeding

Connection to the heart-lung machine

Revision because of surgical complications

Lesions of the aorta Polytrauma

Cardiac problems Pulmonary embolism Hypothermia
