Chest physiotherapy should be used with precaution in patients without sputum production. Adjust duration and intensity of percussion depending upon patient’s condition and response to therapy.
Prior to activating rotation therapy, assess the security of all invasive lines and tubes to accommodate the programmed angle of rotation and minimize the risk of binding, disconnecting or dislodging.
