New to Patient Positioning

  1. Was wondering if anyone could give me a little knowledge...I feel like I have looked everywhere for the information in my text and online with little to no help. Allnurses is my last resort!

    I know the 6 "basic" positions and how/why we'd get them into that position..
    Semi-Fowlers is a vague description...
    I am to do a ILA paper and demonstration on one of the 6 basic positions.
    I chose arm amputee..would the semi fowlers, or fowlers position be the most ideal?
    Not only for the pt comfort but for proper blood flow and healing?
    ANY info would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    Imagine your patient in each of the 6 positions and now which of those positions would most benefit your patient?
