We were not able to define one lesion in one patient in the supine
All adult patients (>14 years), who were electively admitted for PCNL and underwent the procedure in either supine
or prone procedure, were analyzed in the study.
There were no statistically significant differences in IOP values obtained in sitting when compared with values obtained in standing and supine
position (p=0.112, p=0.472).
A statistically significant difference by time was found in the results of the repeated measures variances analysis between the mean values of patients' dyspnea severity (p= 0.003) and HR (p= 0.027) in supine
position, at the beginning of the prone position (prone position's 0.minute), 15th minutes of the prone position, at the beginning of the orthopnea position (orthopnea position's 0.minute) and 15th of the orthopnea position.

While positional therapy is a well-accepted way to reduce supine
sleep time and increase side-sleeping in adults with sleep-disordered breathing, no prior studies have examined its use in pregnant women.
The diagnosis of OH requires measuring BP in both the supine
and upright positions.
A sterile intravenous catheter was inserted into the cubital vein of each arm during supine
SO[sub]2 concentrations were determined as follows. When children were kept in the supine
position, blood was obtained and placed in an anticoagulant tube and was then centrifuged at 2000 rpm for 20 min.
Results of their study produced lower incidence of hypotension along with reduced ephedrine requirements in mothers who remained in full lateral posture (9.7%) than other 2 groups who shifted to tilted supine
posture after receiving the block15.
Authors have suggested many different versions of the supine
and prone positions to optimize the technique: the lateral , laterally flexed , lateral with abducted legs , prone split leg , prone-reverse lithotomy , supine
crossed-leg , and supine
with legs flexed in supports  are only some of them.
Reflux patients were further categorized into having upright, mixed, or supine
