Shefali shared a video on Tuesday on her Instagram feed where she shows three medically approved methods of proning and how could proning help a great deal for some people if they are not able to access oxygen cylinders.

“If you are a COVID positive patient isolating at home and if your oxygen level is fluctuating and if it is going below 94%, what should you do? You should do proning. Proning is a medically proven, highly recommended technique to improve oxygen levels in your blood,” Shefali says in the video before demonstrating the technique.

Meanwhile, India is facing an acute shortage of medical resources with a massive surge in COVID-19 cases. While proning is a recommended technique to improve oxygen level, infected patients with low level of oxygen are highly advised to consult a doctor before approaching any technique.
