The OTA poster on Compartment Syndrome is designed for the Emergency Room setting. The poster is to help alert the ED to the recognition of this limb threatening injury. The classic signs and symptoms are reviewed to help provide basic information on this important diagnosis. Further references are provided along with the key recommendation to Call your Orthopaedic Surgeon • THINK: Compartment Syndrome • No circumferential tight dressings • Elevate Extremities • Palpate compartments • Evaluate neurovascular status of the limb • REMEMBER: an absent pulse is the last physical finding • Search for hypesthesia and pain on motion • Measure compartment pressure

Compartment Syndrome Lecture. NCLEX Review Question on Compartment Syndrome. A 55-year-old female arrives to the ER with a right leg fracture. An x-ray is performed and shows a closed tibia fracture. A closed reduction is performed and a cast is put in place. The patient is ordered Morphine 2 mg IV every 4-6 hours as needed for pain What is Compartment Syndrome? Limb muscles are contained in a fibrous sheath known as a compartment. If blood leaks into the compartment, or the compartment is compressed, this can cause a decrease in neurovascular integrity, distal to the compressing agent or injury. This is known as compartment syndrome (Wedro 2016)

The incidence of compartment syndrome depends on the patient population studied and the etiology of the syndrome. In a study by Qvarfordt and colleagues, 14% of patients with leg pain were noted to have anterior compartment syndrome [] ; compartment syndrome was seen in 1-9% of leg fractures.. Compartment syndrome may affect any compartment, including the hand, forearm, upper arm, abdomen. Compartment syndrome is a painful condition that occurs when pressure within the muscles builds to dangerous levels. This pressure can decrease blood flow, which prevents nourishment and oxygen from reaching nerve and muscle cells. Compartment syndrome can be either acute or chronic. Acute compartment syndrome is a medical emergency Leg Compartment Syndrome is a devastating lower extremity condition where the osseofascial compartment pressure rises to a level that decreases perfusion to the leg and may lead to irreversible muscle and neurovascular damage. Diagnosis is made with the presence of severe and progressive leg pain that worsens with passive ankle motion CCM Adult Core Lecture; 2pm - Abdominal Compartment Syndrome/ICU Management of the Open Abdomen Jason Sperry, MD 3pm - Musculoskeletal Trauma/Compartment Syndrome/Tourniquets Raquel Forsythe, MD 4pm - Types of Drains, Tubes, and Dressings Nicole Toscano, MD.

Acute compartment syndrome of the hand . The carpal tunnel, although not a true compartment, may act as a closed space, and the median nerve may be subjected to the adverse effects of increased pressure.[]The hand compartments that may be involved in compartment syndrome are the interossei (both dorsal and palmar), the thenar and hypothenar, the adductor, and the fingers Balogh Z, McKinley BA, Holcomb JB, et al. Both primary and secondary abdominal compartment syndrome can be predicted early and are harbingers of multiple organ failure. J Trauma 2003; 54:848. Balogh Z, McKinley BA, Cocanour CS, et al. Secondary abdominal compartment syndrome is an elusive early complication of traumatic shock resuscitation Compartment syndrome is a condition where bleeding or edema develops in an area of the body which is surrounded by non-expandable structures of bone and fascia, increasing the local pressure and causing circulatory disturbance in that space.

A compartmental syndrome is a condition in which increased pressure within a limited space compromises the circulation and function of the tissues within that space. This condition is a cause of major loss of function, limb, and even life. It can result from trauma, prolonged recumbancy (in surgery or resulting from drugs or alcohol), or. renal failure and compartment syndrome represent the major life-threatening complications. the management of the condition includes prompt and aggressive fluid resuscitation, elimination of the causative agents and treatment and prevention of any complications that may ensue. the objective of this review is to describ Complications: 1.

Compartment syndrome is a condition which arises due to increased pressure in the leg or arm compartment and thus Blood supply is decreased to that area. To relieve this pressure, a surgical procedure known as fasciotomy is performed that is discussed in detail in this online General Surgery lecture Introduction. Acute compartment syndrome (ACS) is defined by a critical increase in pressure within a closed osteofascial compartment. The critical level is the intramuscular tissue pressure, which causes the capillary bed to collapse, preventing low-pressure blood flow through the capillaries into venous drainage. 1 This results in compromised tissue perfusion, ischemia and necrosis. 2-6. Differential: Cellulitis, vascular disease, trauma, Baker's cyst, compartment syndrome, fracture, gout, necrotizing fasciitis, phlegmasia cerulean dolens, phlegmasia alba dolens, and venous gangrene. Diagnostics: Begin with forming pretest probability - clinical gestalt versus Wells'. MDCalc makes it easy! Wells = 0: DVT unlikely (< 5%)

  4. Compartment syndrome occurs when elevated pressure within the muscular compartment of a limb prevents venous drainage. This, in turn, disrupts arterial perfusion to the muscles and nerves within that compartment. If not detected in a timely fashion, compartment syndrome can lead to ischemia, infarction, and Volkmann's contractures

Intersection Syndrome (Also known as crossover syndrome; Oarsman's wrist) Description: Intersection syndrome is a chronic, overuse injury in the distal radial forearm where the tendons of the 1 st extensor compartment and the 2 nd extensor compartment cross over, resulting in bursitis or tenosynovitis of either or both tendon sheaths. This condition is easily confused with and misdiagnosed.

Electric shock is a physical effect and a violent response to the electrical current, that enters the body.After an encounter with the electric current, there are primary electrical injuries, which indicate tissue damage. Electric current is able to create severe burns in the body They have compartments.
