Introduction- In non-intubated patients with COVID-19 pneumonia, awake prone position associated with non-invasive respiratory support (NRS) demonstrated only physiological benefits. Nonetheless, it might be arguable that at least a selected subset of these patients is going to obtain significant clinical gains. Methods- This retrospective cohort study was conducted in two teaching hospitals comparing effects of awake prone position in addition to usual care (PP) with standard care alone (SC)in severe and critical COVID-19 patients undergoing NRS. Primary outcome was endotracheal intubation (ETI) rate. In-hospital mortality, time to ETI, tracheostomy, length of RICU and hospital stay served as secondary outcomes. Risk factors associated with ETI were also investigated in PP group. Results- A cohort of 114 patients (38 and 76 in PP and SC group, respectively) was analyzed. Greater ETI risk reduction rate was observed in PP as compared with SC both at unadjusted estimates (HR=0.45 95%CI [0.2-0.9], p=0.02), and even after adjustment for confounders (HR=0.59 95%CI[0.3-0.94], p=0.03). Compared with SC, PP group also showed a favorable difference in terms of days free from respiratory support, length of RICU and hospital stay, but not in mortality or tracheostomy rate. Conclusion- Early awake proning in spontaneously breathing Covid-19 patients is associated with a risk reduction of intubation rate.Findings prompt further randomized controlled trials to answer the pending questions on the real efficacy of PP in this setting.

Abstract

Introduction- In non-intubated patients with COVID-19 pneumonia, awake prone position associated with non-invasive respiratory support (NRS) demonstrated only physiological benefits. Nonetheless, it might be arguable that at least a selected subset of these patients is going to obtain significant clinical gains. Methods- This retrospective cohort study was conducted in two teaching hospitals comparing effects of awake prone position in addition to usual care (PP) with standard care alone (SC)in severe and critical COVID-19 patients undergoing NRS. Primary outcome was endotracheal intubation (ETI) rate. In-hospital mortality, time to ETI, tracheostomy, length of RICU and hospital stay served as secondary outcomes. Risk factors associated with ETI were also investigated in PP group. Results- A cohort of 114 patients (38 and 76 in PP and SC group, respectively) was analyzed. Greater ETI risk reduction rate was observed in PP as compared with SC both at unadjusted estimates (HR=0.45 95%CI [0.2-0.9], p=0.02), and even after adjustment for confounders (HR=0.59 95%CI[0.3-0.94], p=0.03). Compared with SC, PP group also showed a favorable difference in terms of days free from respiratory support, length of RICU and hospital stay, but not in mortality or tracheostomy rate. Conclusion- Early awake proning in spontaneously breathing Covid-19 patients is associated with a risk reduction of intubation rate.Findings prompt further randomized controlled trials to answer the pending questions on the real efficacy of PP in this setting.
