Abstract

Interest in intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) as causes of significant morbidity and mortality among the critically ill has increased exponentially over the past decade [1, 2]. Given the prevalence of elevated intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) as well as earlier detection and appropriate therapeutic management of IAH and ACS, significant decreases in patient morbidity and mortality have been achieved in recent years.
