ROCHA, Guilherme Zanini et al. Head support for spinal surgery: technical note. Coluna/Columna [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.3, pp.240-241. ISSN 1808-1851.

We describe a head support for spinal surgery that allows the placement of the patient's head in neutral alignment with the body and monitoring the position of the eyes, mouth, nose and orotracheal tube, preventing damages from poor positioning during surgery.

Keywords : Spine [Surgery]; Anesthesia; Safety; Complications; Patient positioning; Prone position.
