After a live biopsy, the patient should be placed right-side lying with the bed flat. A patient who has gone through a liver biopsy may be getting it because the body’s mobility is already affected. Placing the person lying on his right side will prevent bleeding and will lessen the pressure on the biopsy site.
The other positions that are suggested might cause some issues with the biopsy site and will cause further problems in the long run. A semi-fowler means that the bed will be adjusted to about 30 degrees so that the person will be in about semi-sitting position.
