Explanation:
Sug.

- exercício é feito na posição deitado.

- exercício de mudança de lado, tosse e respiração profunda.

- Turning (Medical dictionary )
Turning from side to side permits lung expansion. Patients may turn themselves or be turned by a caregiver. The head of the bed is also elevated to promote drainage if the patient can tolerate this position. Critically ill patients and those dependent on mechanical respiration are turned once every one to two hours around the clock.
