The Sims position has long been one of the most widely used positions for hospital enemas and is the first
choice for position by many experienced nurses and others in the health care professions. It is also

above the hips, a pad underneath, and a blanket or comforter as a covering. With the shutoff positioned just
right, the left hand can be used to control the inflow

Pregnant women are generally recommended to rest in the left-lateral position (l-lat.) to avoid caval compression. We studied the influence of postural change from the supine position (sup.) to the l-lat. on maternal hemodynamics and tocolysis. The cardiac output (CO) was measured by impedance cardiography, while the pulsatility index of the uterine artery (PIUtA) was determined by the pulsed Doppler method. When the maternal posture was changed from sup. to l-lat, the following results were obtained. (1) The frequency of uterine contractions (UC) (preterm labor = 92) was significantly reduced (p less than 0.01). (2) The resting uterine tonus (n = 5) was also significantly decreased (p less than 0.05). (3) In the cases showing a decrease in the frequency of UC, the CO value was significantly increased (p less than 0.01), whereas PIUtA was significantly decreased (p less than 0.01). It is concluded that the postural change from sup. to l-lat. resulted in a decrease in the frequency of U ...more
