Can anyone give information regarding how it is to use prone positioning on non-ventilated, awake patients in a Med-Surg/PCU setting?  Any challenges or difficulties with proning patients in respiratory distress?  How do you handle non-alert patients with regards to prone positioning?

There are several really really good podcasts on this site that go into the question in depth.

Also a good discussion with this above ED physician and Zzdog. It's long, but totally worthwhile IMO
