More on abdominal compartment syndrome

Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is a precursor to abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS). Awareness of ACS across a variety of medical settings is increasing. There is now a professional society devoted to IAH and ACS. ACS is a systemic disease which can lead to multi-organ failure. One of the better reviews on this topic was recently published. I previously blogged this topic here and here.
