Prone positioning in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) has been shown to significantly improve oxygenation and prevent ventilator-induced lung injury. In the pro/con webcast, Should We Prone All ARDS Patients?, the latest offering from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s (SCCM) Controversies in Critical Care series, the latest evidence on the benefits, limitations and alternatives of prone positioning of patients with ARDS will be presented by Claude Guérin, MD, PhD, and Antonio Pesenti, MD, PhD. Jean-Louis Vincent, MD, PhD, FCCM, will moderate the discussion.
• Describe the rationale for using the prone position
• Explain the evidence supporting the use of the prone position
• Implement a proning strategy in the intensive care unit
• Identify limitations and alternatives to prone positioning
