Total care system for maintaining a comfortable prone position after vitreoretinal surgery

, : Total care system for maintaining a comfortable prone position after vitreoretinal surgery. Ophthalmic Surgery, Lasers & Imaging 38(1): 84-86

A care system to maintain a comfortable prone position after vitreoretinal surgery was developed. Four positions and face-down gear including a TV-watching table were prepared in patients' rooms. Patients could take one position and then change to another position actively as desired. Thirty-nine patients used this system for 4 days after vitreoretinal surgery with intravitreal gas injection. Patients rated the system on a questionnaire. Patients who used the TV-watching table expressed more satisfaction than the patients who did not use it. Also, patients' active selection of various prone postures was important physically and mentally.
