English term or phrase: semiprone position
First aid situation - put the wounded person in a semiprone position to facilitate breathing (?). Is there a good Albanian expression for this? I have the suggestion "në krah përmbys" but I'm not sure that I can use it.
Help needed before noon April 24, GMT.
Thanks in advance

Gjysmë i përkulur me duart përtokë
Explanation:
Hello,
I would translate this expression into Albanian as "Gjysmë i përkulur me duart përtokë". I guess it depends on the style you prefere as well. I came up with this Albanian expression based on the Oxford English Dictionary Online which says: PRONE: "Having the front or ventral part downwards; bending forward and downward; situated or lying face downwards, or on the belly: said chiefly of persons or animals, or of the posture or attitude itself. Of the hand: with the palm downwards (or backwards); also, of the fore-arm, or the radius, in the corresponding position: see pronation.
THis is why I would translate the above expression as Gjysmë i përkulur me duart përtokë
