BACKGROUND The gastrointestinal system is the most sensitive to the presence of intra-abdominal hypertension. We aimed to assess the early prognostic value of gastric air tonometry as a predictor of inadequate splanchnic perfusion and determine its relation with abdominal perfusion pressure (APP). METHODS Twenty-five Large White swine were used for this study. A control group and two study groups were included, in which intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) was elevated with Co2 to 20 and 30 mmHg… CONTINUE READING
