We thank Dr Baldi et al for their correspondence regarding our clinical overview of prone positioning in ARDS. Experienced centers treating ARDS with prone positioning and complementary lung-protective strategies can achieve significant reductions in mortality., However, in the modern era, prone positioning is likely still underused in patients with severe ARDS. Baldi et al’s practical and helpful safety mnemonic, in addition to online video resources, will be helpful for lower-volume centers looking to increase implementation of prone positioning.
