I work for a group of anesthesiologists and CRNA's, and we desperately need a guide to each position of the patient during surgery with a detailed description of each one. We need proof from either a coding manual or reference guide as to what exactly each of these positions are. Does anyone know of a guide with these positions described in it?? Please let me know, it's an urgent matter.

Thank you!!

My medical dictionary is ancient, but it does have a page of them under "position" [Dorland's Illustrated, 26th Edition]

Stedman's

I have the Stedman's Medical Dictionary for the Health Professions and Nursing, Illustrated, Fifth Edition (copyright 2005), and it includes a color plate illustration (plate 39) that shows the various positions. There are no descriptions just the illustrations or photos.
