Scoping Review: Pengaruh Posisi Prone terhadap Saturasi Oksigen (SPO2) pada Pasien Covid-19

Nur Azizah, Lisa Adhia Garina, Arief Guntara


Abstract. One of the symptoms of Covid-19 is respiratory distress and is marked by a decrease in oxygen saturation. The causative treatment for Covid-19 is still under research. Therefore, supportive treatment is needed. One of the supportive treatment is to do the prone position. The study aimed to analyze the effect of Prone's position on oxygen saturation in Covid-19 patients. This research was conducted from 2019-2020.  The research was taken using the scoping review method with samples of international scientific articles that match the eligibility criteria. This study's results were taken from 3 databases, Springer Link, Science Direct, and Google Scholar, with 10,124 initial search results and ten articles matching eligibility criteria. As a result of 10 articles, one article stated no effect of prone position on increasing oxygen saturation. Nine other articles found an increase in oxygen saturation after the prone position. This study's conclusion is based on the dominant study showing that the prone position can increase oxygen saturation in Covid-19 patients.

Keywords: Covid-19, Prone Position, Oxygen Saturation.

Abstrak. Salah satu gejala dari Covid-19 adalah adanya gangguan pernapasan dan ditandai dengan adanya penurunan saturasi oksigen. Pengobatan kausatif untuk Covid-19 masih dalam penelitian. Oleh karena itu, diperlukan pengobatan suportif. Salah satu pengobatan suportif adalah dengan melakukan posisi prone. Tujuan penelitian untuk menganalisis pengaruh posisi prone terhadap saturasi oksigen pada pasien Covid-19.  Penelitian ini dilakukan dari 2019-2020. Penelitian diambil dengan metode scoping review dengan sampel artikel ilmiah nasional dan internasional yang memenuhi kriteria kelayakan. Hasil pada penelitian ini diambil dari 3 database yaitu Springer Link, Science Direct dan Google Scholar dengan hasil pencarian awal terdapat 10.124 dan artikel yang memenuhi kelayakan (elegible) ada 10 artikel. Hasil dari 10 artikel, satu artikel menyatakan tidak ada pengaruh posisi prone pada peningkatan saturasi oksigen. Sembilan artikel lainnya mendapatkan adanya peningkatan saturasi oksigen setelah dilakukan posisi prone. Kesimpulan pada penelitian ini berdasarkan kajian yang dominan menunjukkan bahwa posisi prone dapat meningkatkan saturasi oksigen pada pasien Covid-19.
