Conclusions: (A) Left sagittal computed tomography section in a morbidly obese patient (body mass index = 42 kg/m 2) lying in the supine position.Blue and red arrows indicate the direction of the abdominal and heart compression on the left diaphragmatic cupola. (Research Teaching Specialist, Department of Anesthesiology, UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School), for valuable statistical advice; and Robert Fechtner, M.D. Each data point is reported as a mean of a series of 3. Measurements were displayed on the screen and recorded by a separate investigator. USA.gov. Also, continuous lateral rotational patient positioning on mechanical ventilation has shown similar effects7. The posterior optic nerve is the portion of the nerve that lies in the orbit behind the globe and is perfused by the pial circulation. Figure 4is a graphical representation of CT as a percentage of baseline supine. It is well known that some critically ill, immobile patients benefit from being placed in the prone position. AORN's updated “Guideline for positioning the patient” provides guidance on injury prevention practices for all surgical positions including supine, Trendelenburg, reverse Trendelenburg, lateral, lithotomy, prone, and sitting positions and modifications of these positions. Vital signs were recorded at each position and time point. A small degree of reverse Trendelenburg attenuated the increase in choroidal thickness but not IOP or optic nerve diameter. 10No significant correlation, however, has been shown between IOP and an infarction of the anterior optic nerve as manifested by the onset of either spontaneous AION11or perioperative AION.12,13, In both prone studies, it was postulated that the increase in IOP was due to an increase in episcleral venous pressure, but there was no clear correlation to fluid administration.9,10Episcleral venous pressure is an established determinant of resting IOP, and IOP varies directly with episcleral venous pressure and aqueous humor production but inversely with aqueous outflow facility. Episcleral venous congestion caused by vascular congestion may be a significant factor in the rise in IOP in the prone position.9,10However, Lam and Douthwaite14state that the episcleral venous pressure should be the same in the supine and prone postures and that other factors may be responsible for the rise in IOP. Using awake volunteers does not provide surgical controls, but isolating the effects of the prone position without surgery, anesthesia, or fluids provides valuable information regarding the ocular effects over time. aspirated (ideally at least 1hr before proning). 1 The surgical site is elevated above the level of the heart to improve drainage of bodily fluids away from the surgical site, reducing intracranial pressure and decreasing bleeding in the surgical field. • Chest drains need to be well secured and placed below the It is interesting to note that the graphs for all four parameters describe a similar pattern with a change in the rate of increase and a peak. Anesth Analg 2006; 103:499–500, Paneck WC, Boothe WA, Lee DA, Zemplenyi E, Pettit TH: Intraocular pressure measurement with the Tono-pen through soft contact lenses. (Research Coordinator, Department of Anesthesiology, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-New Jersey Medical School, Newark, New Jersey), for volunteer recruitment and coordination of volunteer scheduling and acquisition of equipment and supplies for experiments; Ying Lin, M.D. Measurements were assessed as initial supine, initial prone, and hourly thereafter. The values for the supine, Trendelenburg, reverse Trendelenburg, 45-degree back-up sitting position, 45-degree legs-lifted supine, and prone positions were 7.0 ± 3.4, 7.8 ± 3.8, 4.8 ± 2.3, 4.5 ± 2.5, 7.7 ± 4.2, and 6.0. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of the prone position and a 4-degree increase in table inclination over a 5-h period on IOP as well as ultrasound imaging of the choroid layer and optic nerve diameter in a larger sample size of awake volunteers. Mean heart rates ranged from 68 to 75 beats/min in the HT inclination and 67–75 beats/min in the RT inclination. J Am Coll Surg 2002; 194:705–10, Gerling J, Janknecht P, Hansen LL, Kommerell G: Diameter of the optic nerve in idiopathic optic neuritis and in anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. This study confirms the increase in IOP that has been shown to occur in the prone position9,10,15but demonstrated more of an unanticipated increase with time by using a small elevation in table inclination. A fully prone position may not be achievable and the reverse Trendelenburg in prone (foot of bed angled 100 to 300 down) may aid comfort and can be seen below (figure 1) with care taken to clear the abdomen of any pillows. 2020 Nov 17;15(11):e0242567. J Neuroophthalmol 2008; 28:327–8, Moretti R, Pizzi B: Optic nerve ultrasound for detection of intracranial hypertension in intracranial hemorrhage patients: Confirmation of previous findings in a different patient population. The latter provides the majority of the blood supply through the short posterior ciliary arteries whereas the retinal arterioles provide partial perfusion of the superficial disc. No significant complications were associated with reverse Trendelenburg positioning. No baselines had been obtained for the first two volunteers, and thus, the ultrasound data were compared with baseline supine for only the last eight volunteers. Effect of the degree of reverse Trendelenburg position on intraocular pressure during prone spine surgery: a randomized controlled trial.

Identical measures were repeated on each pair of volunteers at a separate session with the table in a 4-degree RT inclination. See also: Trendelenburg, Friedrich However, lying in one position for prolonged periods increases the risk of pressure sore formation. Reverse Trendelenburg should be elevated to 25 degrees or greater while feeding in the prone position. This site needs JavaScript to work properly. Trendelenburg position is when the head and torso are lowered and the feet are elevated. Int J Spine Surg. Anesthesiology 2001; 95:1351–5, Hunt K, Bajekal R, Calder I, Meacher R, Eliahoo J, Acheson JF: Changes in intraocular pressure in anesthetized prone patients. Anesth Analg. In summary, we have shown a marked increase in ocular parameters, which are presumed to be signs of vascular congestion including IOP and CT as well as optic nerve diameter over a 5-h period in the prone position. In patients with moderate to severe ARDS, who are mechanically ventilated, early use of the prone position has increased survival rates. If reverse trendelenburg cannot be maintained, insert a gastric drainage tube. The results show a clear increase in IOP, choroid layer thickness, and optic nerve diameter in the prone position compared with the supine position, which increases further with time over 5 h. Although the changes in MAP showed an upward trend, these changes were not significant. eCollection 2017. Because of his height, his weight was well distributed, and he did not exhibit the body habitus of obesity. Epub 2014 Jan 20. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. Transcutaneous B-scan provides the advantage of obtaining safe images through a closed eyelid, eliminating the risk of corneal abrasion. After approval by the office of the institutional review board (University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey [UMDNJ]-Newark Campus, Newark, NJ) for human studies, informed consent was obtained from 10 volunteers (American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I–II), aged 23–60 yr. Exclusion criteria included allergy to proparacaine or tropicamide, preexisting eye disease or eye surgery, and the inability to lie prone for 5 h. Baseline supine measurements (heart rate, blood pressure, IOP, choroidal thickness [CT], and optic nerve diameter) were recorded with the volunteer lying on a stretcher. Medical definition of Trendelenburg position: a position of the body for medical examination or operation in which the patient is placed head down on a table inclined at about 45 degrees from the floor with the knees uppermost and the legs hanging over the end of the table. CT and OND values were 1.6 ± 0.1 SD mm and 5.5 ± 0.1 SD mm, respectively, in volunteer 1 and 1.6 ± 0 SD mm and 6.1 ± 0.1 SD mm in volunteer 2 during a third supine measurement session. Talk through steps as a group prior to starting procedure and review responsibilities. Place bed into reverse trendelenburg position Reduces facial and peri-orbital oedema. Effects of position, time, and table inclination on mean arterial blood pressure as percentage of baseline supine; HT = horizontal table; RT = reverse Trendelenburg (4 degrees); prone 0 is immediately prone; prone 1 through prone 5 represent hourly readings through the fifth hour; post 0 represents immediate return to supine; post 30 represents head of stretcher elevated at 30 degrees for 30 min; n = 10 except for post 0 and post 30, where n = 8. 11found an association between hypotension and spontaneous AION on awakening but no association with elevated IOP. We recommend following the current societal guidelines for the delivery of EN in critical illness by initiating early enteral feeding, 16, 27, 28 maintaining head‐of‐bed elevation (reverse Trendelenburg) at 10–25°, and evaluating and managing risk factors on an individual basis for patients undergoing prone positioning. The reports describing cases of perioperative ION, specifically PION, have shown normal IOPs on postoperative examination.27However, as we have shown in this study, IOP approaches baseline very quickly after return to the supine position, and thus an increased IOP intraoperatively may not be detected postoperatively. However there is no mortality benefit with prone positioning. Thus, if a difference could not be shown over time for a 10-degree elevation, it is likely that a 4-degree elevation is too small to show consistent comparative improvement in these parameters over a prolonged period. 2017 Sep 13;11:1643-1650. doi: 10.2147/OPTH.S139874. Takeaways: 1. 2018 May;126(5):1551-1562. doi: 10.1213/ANE.0000000000002544. The circulation of the optic nerve head is derived from the ophthalmic artery, through the central retinal artery and the posterior ciliary arteries. This position is used for head and neck procedures and provides visualization in … Knowledge on optimal positioning of critically ill obese patients is essential as the incidence of obese and morbidly obese patients in our ICUs is rising. 2014 Sep 1;14(9):2118-26. doi: 10.1016/j.spinee.2013.12.025. : After institutional review board approval, 10 healthy volunteers underwent IOP measurement (Tono-Pen XL, Medtronic Solan, Jacksonville, FL) as well as choroidal thickness and optic nerve diameter assessment (Sonomed B-1000, Sonomed, Inc., Lake Success, NY, or the I System-ABD, Innovative Imaging, Inc., Sacramento, CA) on a Jackson table (Orthopedic Systems, Inc., Union City, CA), during 5 h horizontal prone and 5 h 4-degree reverse Trendelenburg positioning. Clipboard, Search History, and several other advanced features are temporarily unavailable. MAP, IOP, choroid thickness, and optic nerve diameter were calculated as percentage of baseline (supine), and the effects of time and table position from prone 0 through prone 5 were evaluated using ANOVA. implementing safe practices for positioning patients in the supine, Trendelenburg, reverse Trendelenburg, lithotomy, sitting and semi-sitting, lateral, and prone positions and modifications of these positions; implementing safe practices for positioning patients who are pregnant or obese; Blood pressure measurements were taken using a disposable blood pressure cuff recorded on a Philips MP70 monitor (Boeblingen, Germany) or Propaq monitor (Welch Allyn, Beaverton, OR). Anastomoses of posterior ciliary artery branches form the circle of Zinn-Haller, which contributes significant perfusion to the optic nerve head. Am J Emerg Med 2005; 23:686–8, Dunker S, Hsu HY, Sebag J, Sadun AA: Perioperative risk factors for posterior ischemic optic neuropathy. In the RT inclination, the head was 15 cm higher than the foot of the table. Ten degrees of reverse Trendelenburg attenuate the rise in IOP during prone spine surgery superiorly in comparison with 5°. : Prolonged prone positioning increases IOP, choroid layer thickness, and optic nerve diameter independent of anesthetics and intravenous fluid infusion and 4 degrees of table inclination (15 cm of head to foot vertical disparity) may not attenuate these effects. 2–5. Anesth Analg 2004; 99:1152–8, Fukui K, Tempelhoff R, Cheng MA: Intraocular pressure during prone position surgery: Effects of time and head elevation. The supine position is back to the OR table, prone position is stomach to OR table, and lateral position is side lying. 5 While data pertaining to these were documented as part of patient care, they were not captured in the study. This is the exact opposite traditional Trendelenburg position and is also named the “anti-trendelenburg”. Experimental study. CONCLUSIONS: Reverse Trendelenburg positioning elicits decreased IOP compared with prone positioning for surgery times less than 120 minutes. Two volunteers were studied per session. In the Trendelenburg position, the body is laid supine, or flat on the back on a 15–30 degree incline with the feet elevated above the head. One preliminary study on awake volunteers showed that an increase in table inclination of only 4 degrees (15 cm) would attenuate the increase in IOP over 1 h18whereas a pilot study on two awake volunteers over 5 h showed a trend but not a significant difference.19With the exception of the pilot study, no volunteer study in the prone position, evaluating this degree of head elevation and eliminating the effects of anesthetics and fluid administration, has been conducted beyond 1 h. The thickness of the choroid layer also increased significantly over time but not significantly with table position.19The increase in the size of this vascular layer may provide further evidence of the increase in vascular congestion of the globe because of pooling in the dependent position for a prolonged period and may lead to an increase in episcleral venous pressure. Ozcan MS, Praetel C, Bhatti MT, Gravenstein N, Mahla ME, Seubert CN. Our volunteers began to complain of chest discomfort and symptoms of facial and sinus congestion during the last hour. She is a student at South Park Elementary. 1. Please enable it to take advantage of the complete set of features! The head is elevated higher 15 to 30 degrees in the air. Attach all the current (proned) sheet straps to the ceiling lift device 2e. A 10-degree elevation in a one-piece table is equivalent to 37-cm head versus  foot height,17which theoretically may cause increased venous pooling at the lumbar surgical site. The attenuation of the increase in the choroid layer may indicate that there are less transient factors besides an increase in episcleral venous pressure contributing to the rise in IOP in the prone position as suggested by Lam and Douthwaite.14In one study, the authors showed no immediate change in optic nerve diameter comparing supine, Trendelenburg (30 degrees), and RT (30 degrees) positions in healthy adults during 1-min position changes using ultrasound.26However, to our knowledge, no one has previously studied the effects of the prone position or prolonged positional changes on optic nerve diameter. Tube feeds should be temporarily off and the stomach emptied when … 5. A coordinated effort of an interprofessional team, trained in a nursing care protocol, can prone positioning an effective and safe intervention. 2004 Oct;99(4):1152-8, table of contents. A recent case report documents reversible enlargement of superior ophthalmic veins in a case of bilateral perioperative PION after prolonged spine surgery in the prone position. This position of the abdominal contents allows for a more functional diaphragm position. Prone positioning does resolve the dorsal atelectasis and shows improvement in hypoxia. 2020 Apr 30;14(2):195-208. doi: 10.14444/7029. Effect of the degree of reverse Trendelenburg position on intraocular pressure during prone spine surgery: a randomized controlled trial. Figure 2is a graphical representation of MAP as a percentage of baseline and illustrates the upward trend over time in the prone position. There was a trend to return to baseline in all the parameters after 30 min in head of stretcher elevation of 30 degrees with significance achieved in both table positions for IOP (i.e. eCollection 2020 Apr. After observing significant changes in the choroid thickness and optic nerve diameter between prone 0 and prone 5 in the first two volunteers, we performed additional ultrasound measurements including baseline supine at all the time points at both table inclinations for the remaining eight volunteers. : IOP, choroidal thickness, and optic nerve diameter were observed to increase with time in the prone position. In this position, the patient is secured and tilted head-up and a padded footplate is attached to the OR table. We recommend following the current societal guidelines for the delivery of EN in critical illness by initiating early enteral feeding, 16, 27, 28 maintaining head‐of‐bed elevation (reverse Trendelenburg) at 10–25°, and evaluating and managing risk factors on an individual basis for patients undergoing prone positioning. This measurement technique has also been previously described.17An additional set of measurements was added to the protocol in the final eight volunteers. The validity of measuring IOP by a soft contact lens has been well documented.22,23The tonometer averages four successful readings per contact and displays the mean and SD. Although the 2003 Ghana Demo-graphic Health Survey (DHS) final report [17] recom-mends caution when using data from the various DHS to assess the trend in the nutritional status, it is noted that there was a trend over the past five years of increased stunting compared to a decrease of wasting and under-weight. 2009 Aug;109(2):473-8. doi: 10.1213/ane.0b013e3181a9098f. compared the diameters of the retrobulbar (intraorbital) optic nerve by using ultrasonography in patients with optic neuritis and unilateral AION. Intensive Care Med. Drainage of oral secretions may increase. Patients receiving supine ventilation were nursed in 30° recumbency while those in prone position were given a 15° reverse Trendelenburg position. Anesthesiology 2010; 112:57–65 doi: https://doi.org/10.1097/ALN.0b013e3181c294e1. Reverse Trendelenburg, head-up position, may be an amicable solution to ameliorate increases in IOP. There was no difference between eyes in the patients with AION, and the numbers were not different from normal controls.28In AION, the disease process occurs in the laminar or intraocular optic nerve, whereas optic neuritis can occur anywhere along the course of the nerve. Since the reverse Trendelenburg position allows extra time to secure the airway before desaturation and the HELP position improves view during laryngoscopy, our practice is to combine both for induction of anesthesia in our obese patients. For the optic nerve measurement, the 3-mm marker was placed by the ultrasonographer in real time (fig. 1B). (B ) Image of the retrobulbar optic nerve in the supine position; the width is measured approximately 3 mm posterior to the globe between the + markers. ❖ Prone position and long duration of surgery may predispose patients to ischemic optic neuropathy and visual loss, ❖ Intraocular pressure increases with prone positioning, ❖ In healthy volunteers, intraocular pressure and choroid/optic nerve width increase progressively over 5 h in the prone position, ❖ Elevating the head of the bed 4° minimally affects these variables, suggesting that such positioning may not protect against ischemic optic neuropathy, PERIOPERATIVE visual loss is a devastating event occasionally associated with nonocular surgery. The reverse trendelenburg position is used to expose the prostate and upper abdominal region during surgery. Identical table positions were used for ultrasound imaging and IOP measurements in eight of the volunteers, but only three prone positions were used in the first two volunteers (prone 0, prone 2.5, and prone 5). However, no significant association has been shown, and elevated IOP is considered an unlikely cause of perioperative AION and most certainly not the cause of PION.13However, it may still be an important marker for venous congestion affecting the orbit because some of the same factors that affect IOP may increase intraorbital venous pressure. Some studies suggest CPR in the prone position can be more effective in generating effective perfusion than in the supine position. Optom Vis Sci 1997; 74:664–7, Ozcan MS, Praetel C, Bhatti T, Gravenstein N, Mahla M, Seubert CN: The effect of body inclination during prone positioning on intraocular pressure in awake volunteers: A comparison of two operating tables.

Feasible without increased complications compared to non-obese patients when performed by a trained team. Built up pressure to the head is something overweight people can experience during surgery. Conventional prone positioning equipment cannot safely accommodate all patients with advanced deformity where the chin brow angle approaches or exceeds 90°. This simulation provides the key steps for positioning in supine, prone, lateral, lithotomy, sitting, Trendelenburg, and reverse Trendelenburg. It is the opposite of Trendelenburg’s position. Background: Our findings of an increase in optic nerve diameter in the prone position over time may be suggestive of an increase in orbital venous congestion and associated pressure. As well as the management of position-associated risks, for example, the safety of at-risk soft tissue and neurovasculature. Awad H, Santilli S, Ohr M, Roth A, Yan W, Fernandez S, Roth S, Patel V. Anesth Analg. Supine values for CT were 1.3 ± 0.3 SD mm in the HT and 1.6 ± 0.3 SD mm in the RT. Visual acuity was measured at the beginning and conclusion of each study with a near card and appropriate visual correction. Background: In the presence of chin-on-chest deformity of ankylosing spondylitis, positioning for extension osteotomy of the spine is a challenging endeavor. Studies have shown that the sheath is widest at 3 mm behind the globe and varies along the length of the nerve as it travels posteriorly.25All measurements were performed by the same ophthalmic ultrasonographer with over 9 yr of ultrasound experience (approximately 2,000 B-scans per year). We also showed a significant return to baseline in one of the parameters with a slower trend in the other two after a 30-degree supine head elevation, which may have some significance for postoperative stretcher position. To the Editor: —In performing proctectomy following coccygectomy, with or without partial sacrectomy, the patient is placed prone in the shape of an inverted V, the buttocks at the apex. reversed in 2003 [18]. If a patient is prone and flat (or head down), there is increased risk for aspiration. These effects have previously not been isolated from anesthetic and fluid administration over a prolonged period, using an adequate sample size. It is remarkable that the diameters of the optic nerve and the thickness of the choroid layer increase markedly without a fluid infusion. Int Ophthalmol 1997; 21:131–5, Levin LA, Danesh-Meyer HV: Hypothesis: A venous etiology for nonarteritic ischemic optic neuropathy. In Reverse Trendelenburg the OR table is tilted with the feet facing downward and the head 15 degrees to 30 degrees higher. Fig. Pediatr Radiol 1996; 26:701–5, Romagnuolo L, Tayal V, Tomaszewski C, Saunders T, Norton HJ: Optic nerve sheath diameter does not change with patient position. Critical care specialists say being on the belly seems help people seriously ill with Covid-19 because it allows oxygen to more easily get to the lungs. Thus, in AION, one would not expect to see an increase in the retrobulbar optic nerve diameter. The values of the ocular measurements for this volunteer were not different from that of his paired volunteer with a body mass index of 23.8. One set of branches of the posterior ciliary arteries forms the choriocapillaris and provides the major perfusion of the choroid.5, Ocular perfusion pressure of the anterior optic nerve is commonly estimated as the difference between the mean arterial pressure (MAP) and intraocular pressure (IOP).6–8Cheng et al. The reverse Trendelenburg position ameliorated the increase in IOP caused by the prone position. Measurements were assessed as initial supine, initial prone, and hourly thereafter. Gerling et al. In addition, we believe that the low standard deviations accomplished during the repeated supine measurements on two additional volunteers established reasonable intraobserver reproducibility. The majority of cases of ION after spine surgery as reported in the American Society of Anesthesiologists Postoperative Visual Loss Registry was associated with an anesthetic duration greater than 6 h.3,4We used 5 h as our maximum time in the prone position as a compromise for subject comfort. Reverse Trendelenburg ‘Head up’ position is commonly used for laparoscopic upper gastro-intestinal and bariatric surgery. Conclusions: : Prolonged prone positioning increases IOP, choroid layer thickness, and optic nerve diameter independent of anesthetics and intravenous fluid infusion and 4 degrees of table inclination (15 cm of head to foot vertical disparity) may not attenuate these effects. Notes: Gastric drainage may be impaired in the prone position, particularly if reverse Trendelenburg cannot be maintained. Anesthesiol Clin North America 2002; 20:605–22, Hayreh SS: Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy. Heart rate was measured using the Masimo (Irvine, CA) oxygen saturation probe recorded on either of the above described monitors. The prone position may contribute to increased orbital venous pressure or venous congestion or both, although this has not been easily quantified. Thus, the head are elevated higher than the feet. Effects of position, time, and table inclination on optic nerve diameter (OND) as percentage of baseline supine; HT = horizontal table; RT = reverse Trendelenburg (4 degrees); prone 0 is immediately prone; prone 1 through prone 5 represent hourly readings through the fifth hour; post 0 represents immediate return to supine; post 30 represents head of stretcher elevated at 30 degrees for 30 min; n = 8 except for prone 4 in the HT, where n = 6; *= statistical significance using post hoc  analysis for post 0 and post 30 compared with baseline in the HT graph and # = significance in the RT graph, P < 0.05. Gastric secretions are produced on an ongoing basis. Arm abduction > 90 degrees can push the head of the humerus into the axillary neurovascular bundle so keep arms less than 90 degrees. This intervention allows easy removal of any soiled materials. Reverse Trendelenburg Position Definition.
