How Prone position helps in maintaining oxygen level, doctors show

The coronavirus crisis is at its peak in India. With record surging cases, the city-to-city oxygen crisis has arisen. There has been an outcry across the country. The new strain of COVID-19 is to be blamed for this. As reported, it is quite dangerous and this time the symptoms of the deadly virus are visible after 25% of the lungs are damaged which results in troubled breathing. It is being observed that a high percentage of patients are having difficulty in breathing and their oxygen level is decreasing rapidly. Within 2 to 3 days it reaches below 80 and in such a situation, immediate oxygen supply is required. If oxygen is not available during this period, the situation becomes very serious for the patient.
