English term or phrase:face-over position
Son una serie de instrucciones postoperatorias, específicamente para cirugía de la retina. El contexto es:
If a gas or air bubble is used during your surgery, do not go to a higher elevation until your surgeon has released you. You will also need to be in a "face over" position until the doctor says it is OK to stop (approximately 3-10 days).
¿Quiere decir esto que debe estar con la cabeza más elevada que el resto del cuerpo, o con la cara hacia arriba, o qué?
Gracias de antemano y también ¡bendiciones para todos y muy FELIZ NAVIDAD!
