Comparison of direct and indirect methods of intra-abdominal pressure measurement in normal horses.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To develop a direct method for measuring intra-abdominal pressures in the standing horse, identify a reference interval for direct intra-abdominal pressures, compare these pressures to indirect intra-abdominal pressures measured from the bladder, and determine the optimal bladder infusion volume for indirect pressure measurement.
