    an upright position

    (Gradually elevate the patient into an upright position.)
    I take it to mean "Help the patient sit up", but am I right? Some people think it means "to help the patient stand up", is it logically cerrect?
    Pls help me with this,thanks!

    You can stand upright or sit upright.
    To be exact, it is the torso being in a vertical position.

    Re: an upright position

    Upright means facing up, so yes it refers to a sitting position (could also be standing). Just like tedtmc pointed out, it is the torso being in a vertical position.

    Wouldn't sitting upright be facing forward?
    If you're facing up, you could be lying supine.
