I was beginning to think I was odd. I hate lying on my back, and I hate recliners. When I nap or sleep, I find myself on my side or stomach.
This article from the NY Times talks about "proning" - where they are able to keep many people with COVID from needing to be intubated on ventilators. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/14/nyregion/new-york-coronavirus.html?
"Some patients, by taking oxygen and rolling onto their sides or on their bellies, have quickly returned to normal levels. The tactic is called proning."
"At Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx, Dr. Nicholas Caputo followed 50 patients who arrived with low oxygen levels between 69 and 85 percent (95 is normal). After five minutes of proning, they had improved to a mean of 94 percent. Over the next 24 hours, nearly three-quarters were able to avoid intubation; 13 needed ventilators. Proning does not seem to work as well in older patients, a number of doctors said."
Thin is interesting, since most of what I have heard is to sleep with pillows, and many of us sleep in recliners.
I think this article not protected with the paywall, but if it is, message me and I'll try to send it to you.
What works for you?
