INTRODUCTION The importance of the abdominal wall characteristics in intraabdominal pressure (IAP), intraabdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) are poorly understood. The applicability of laboratory research findings to human scenarios is unknown due to the potential differences in abdominal wall elastance (AWE) amongst species. The aims of the study are to describe the AWE curve in rabbits and to compare it to the available human data. MATERIALS AND METHODS… CONTINUE READING
