PURPOSE: The impact of a capnoperitoneum on the known blood pressure (BP) difference of the upper and lower limb was studied in piglets.
METHODS: Eleven German Landrace piglets (body weight, 4.3-7.4 kg; mean body weight, 6.2 kg) were studied. Arterial lines were placed in the right carotid and right femoral artery for pressure monitoring. Intraabdominal pressure levels were increased in steps of 6 mm Hg up to 24 mm Hg.
RESULTS: We found that elevated intraabdominal pressures up to 24 mm Hg did not change the preexisting systolic BP difference between the carotid and femoral arteries. Systolic femoral artery pressure constantly remained 5% higher than its carotid counterpart. In addition, mean and diastolic values were not affected.
CONCLUSIONS: Arterial BP measurements recorded at the legs of piglets when abdominal pressure is increased by up to 24 mm Hg can be used for intraoperative assessment of systemic arterial BP.
