Abstract

BACKGROUND: Increased intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) can result in multiorgan failure. Trauma, mechanical bowel obstruction (MBO), abdominal wall defects (AWD) and fluid resuscitation in septic shock are conditions associated with a high risk of increased IAP in children. It may be possible to treat these conditions more effectively using intravesical pressure measurement.
