I am new to this forum. Currently, I work in a respiratory unit and would like to seek your advice.
I have noticed that many patients on respiratory failure prefer to lean forward with the head hunched over the chest while sitting in bed. Some of them even sleep in this posture which seems extremely uncomfortable to me,especially when the head droops to either side of the neck.
I have tried several arrangements of pillows/linen to try to stabilise the head but nothing seems to work satisfactorily. Would someone like to share her experience/tips on this issue please?
