Abstract

Objective: To investigate the changes of intraocular pressure who is treated with prone position ventilation in ARDS. Method: 10 patients with ARDS treated in the ICU of the First People's Hospital of Yunnan Province from January 2021 to March 2022 were included, and they were classified as two groups according to whether prone position ventilation was performed daily or not. In the prone position group, the intraocular pressure will be was measure before and after the prone position. Two groups were measured regularly every day. Result: The overall intraocular pressure level in the prone position group was higher than that in the supine position group. When the patients in the prone position group changed position, the immediate intraocular pressure in prone position was higher than that in supine position, and the increase in intraocular pressure was more pronounced with increasing time in the prone position. Conclusion: The intraocular pressure changes in the patients who is treated with prone position ventilation in ARDS have exceeded normal physiological criteria, and we should be aware that this group of patients may be at increased risk of developing glaucoma.
