Summary A systematic review was undertaken to evaluate the effect of lateral positioning compared to other body positions on morbidity, mortality, and clinical adverse events for critically ill patients. Twenty three studies met the criteria. Hypoxaemia was not consistently reported. No clinical practice recommendations could be drawn from the included studies due to methodological shortcomings.
