Guidelines update, v44.1

21 October, 2021

Version 44.1 of the Australian guidelines for the clinical care of people with COVID-19 includes an addition to the remark for prone positioning for adults:

For adults with COVID-19 and respiratory symptoms who are receiving any form of supplemental oxygen therapy and have not yet been intubated, prone positioning for as long as tolerated (ideally 8 hours or more) is likely to increase benefits.
