  • Reflux/Aspiration

  • Inadvertent Rolling, Patient Falls, or Injury

  • Corneal Abrasions

  • Post-Procedure Neck/Back Pain

  • HAI’s associated with standard hospital pillow reuse

When selecting the EPS-30 Positioners that will best meet the needs of your patients and procedure type, please reference the sizing guide below. All EPS-30 Positioners provide versatile positioning across the spectrum of GI endoscopy procedures. The wide range of options help to meet varying needs of patients due to height, weight, and shoulder width. To provide maximal benefits for alignment, pressure relief, and shoulder decompression, you should generally trend toward the higher profile end of the spectrum. Though most facilities will wish to have a variety of sizes and styles available to meet their changing patient needs, the sizing guide serves as general recommendation to select your first EPS-30 Positioner.
