Abstract

Purpose of Review

Abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) is defined as a sustained intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) greater than 20 mmHg that is associated with the development of new organ dysfunction or failure.

Recent Findings

Resuscitation to euvolemia continues to be a challenge, and in patients at risk of developing ACS, this is critical since fluid overload plays a major role in this development.

Summary

The following article addressed maneuvers that can result in decrease incidence of ACS.
