The three trunk postures were 30° of lower and upper trunk inclination (WT30°), 30° and 60° of lower and upper trunk inclination (UT 60°), respectively and 60° of upper and lower trunk inclination (WT60°).
These findings suggested that SV and preload are higher when the upper trunk is upright (UT60°) than when the entire trunk is upright (WT60°) while in Fowler’s position.
