To treat a client with autonomic dysreflexia, the nurse positions the client:

1. Prone, head to the side, arms on pillows.
2. In a fetal position with a blood pressure cuff on.
3. Leaning forward over the bedside table.
4. By elevating the head of bed and removing support hose.

Explanation

This position promotes venous drainage from the head and decreases venous return, reducing blood pressure. Identify the option that describes a position of comfort and that would promote drainage.
