Solving Positioning Challenges Beyond Orthopaedics
Manage obesity airway challenges with the Troop Elevation Pillow and quickly achieve the head elevated laryngoscopy position. In addition, consider using the BoneFoam positioning solutions to support the patient in the supine, lateral, or prone position for any surgery.
More than one-third of Americans are obese or significantly overweight, which can make anesthesia management more challenging.
Help facilitate intubation, reduce risks associated with induction of the obese patient and achieve better ventilatory mechanics by using a stable and consistent solution to ramp the patient.
BoneFoam Anesthesia Solutions
Positioning support for patients especially during long procedures.
The Supine Position is the most commonly used position in the OR and allows for excellent access to anterior structures in the body.
BoneFoam Supine Solutions
Dual Leg Support
Protecting the shoulder, brachial plexus and neck.
The lateral position is commonly used for thoracic surgeries, surgeries involving retroperitoneal structures (e.g., kidneys, adrenal glands, pancreas, nerve roots, lymph nodes, abdominal aorta, inferior vena cava), and surgeries of the hip. Prolonged inappropriate patient position can result in injuries.

Practical Solutions for Prone Position
To gain access to posterior anatomic structures, care must be taken to avoid complications in this position, as physiologic changes occur with increased pressure to anterior structures. Postoperative vision loss and cardiovascular complications, including hypovolemia and cardiac arrest, have the highest level of evidence.
