Also Known As: Proning, Prone positioning, Stomach lying, Lying on stomach

Proning or prone positioning is the placement of patients into a prone position so that they are lying on their stomach. This is used in the treatment of patients in intensive care with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). It has been especially tried and studied for patients on ventilators but during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is being used for patients with oxygen masks and CPAP as an alternative to ventilation.[1][2]
