BIO The Trendelenburg Position.? After emergencies with major blood loss, a patient is placed in the Trendelenburg position, in which the foot of the bed is raised to get maximum blood flow to the brain. If the coefficient of static friction between a typical patient and the bedsheets is 1.20, what is the maximum angle at which the bed can be tilted with respect to the floor before the patient begins to slide?
Solution to 25E Step 1. The coefficient of friction between patient and bedsheet, = 1.2 Let the angle between the patientTrendelenburg position be Thus the free body diagram is as follows,
