Spanish term or phrase: posición de decúbito
This occurs in a cardiologist's letter about a patient's heart condition. In reporting the results of the inclined table test, which induced cardiac arrest, he concludes: "La paciente se recupera en los primeros 5 minutes en posición de decúbito." I thought posición and decúbito were the same thing, and so am stumped.
