ABDOMINAL COMPARTMEN..

  1. 1. ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME <ul><li>Symptomatic organ dysfunction that results from increased intraabdominal pressure (IAP) </li></ul><ul><li>Increased IAP is an under-recognized source of morbidity and mortality. </li></ul><ul><li>1-day point-prevalence observational trial conducted in 13 medical ICUs of six countries with 97 patients, 8% had IAP > 20mmHg. 1 </li></ul><ul><li>The incidence of ACS in trauma patients is estimated to be between 2 and 9 percent. 2 </li></ul>1 Crit Care Med 2005; 33:315. 2 Am J Surg 2002; 184:538.
  2. 2. ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME <ul><li>Massive volume resuscitation in the leading cause of ACS. </li></ul><ul><li>Inflammatory states with capillary leak, fluid sequestration, inadequate tissue perfusion, and lactic acidosis can develop ACS. </li></ul><ul><li>Gastric overdistention following endoscopy has resulted in ACS. </li></ul>ETIOLOGY
  3. 3. ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME <ul><li>The IAP is usually 0 mmHg during spontaneous respiration, and is slightly positive in the patient on mechanical ventilation. </li></ul><ul><li>IAP increases in direct relation to body mass index, and in one report, supine hospitalized patients had a mean baseline value of 6.5 mmHg. </li></ul><ul><li>The compliance of the abdominal wall generally limits the rise in IAP but increases rapidly after a critical IAP. </li></ul><ul><li>Critical IAP varies from patient to patient, based on abdominal wall compliance on perfusion gradient. </li></ul><ul><li>IAH often defined as IAP > 12mmHg. </li></ul><ul><li>Previous pregnancy, cirrhosis, morbid obesity, may increase abdominal wall compliance and can be protective . </li></ul>PATHOPHYSIOLOGY

  5. 5. ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME <ul><li>50 mL of sterile saline is instilled into the bladder via the aspiration port of the Foley catheter with the drainage tube clamped. An 18-gauge needle attached to a pressure transducer is then inserted in the aspiration port, and the pressure is measured. The transducer should be zeroed at the level of the pubic symphysis. </li></ul>Curr Opin Crit Care 2005; 11:333
  6. 6. ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME MANAGEMENT PROPOSED GRADING OF ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME Surg Clin North Am 1996; 76:833. Abdominal perfusion pressure (APP):    APP = MAP - IAP In one retrospective study, the inability to maintain an APP above 50 mmHg predicted mortality with greater sensitivity and specificity than either IAP or MAP alone . Re-exploration >35 IV Decompression 26-35 III Volume administration 16-25 II Maintenance of normovolemia 10-15 I Management Pressure (mmHg) Grade
  7. 7. ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME OPERATIVE DECOMPRESSION Vacuum-assisted temporary abdominal closure device: thin plastic sheet, a sterile towel, closed suction drains, and a large adherent operative drape. This dressing system permits increases in intra-abdominal volume, without a dramatic elevation in IAP.
  8. 8. ABDOMINAL COMPARTMENT SYNDROME <ul><li>ACS is a clinical entity caused by an acute, progressive increase in IAP. </li></ul><ul><li>Multiple organ systems are affected, usually in a graded fashion. </li></ul><ul><li>The gut is the organ most sensitive to IAH. </li></ul><ul><li>Treatment involves expedient decompression of the abdomen. </li></ul><ul><li>Since this syndrome affects patients who are already physiologically compromised, a high degree of suspicion and a low threshold for checking bladder pressures are required to prevent the mortality associated with this complex problem. </li></ul>SUMMARY
