PMID:  7230297     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A new catheter employing a different technique to monitor compartmental pressure has been developed. The accuracy of the catheter was compared to a wick catheter and to the needle manometer technique for monitoring compartmental pressure. The slit catheter is the most accurate of the three techniques for continuous pressure monitoring for periods of up to 24 hours in the experimental canine model. The slit catheter is as accurate as the wick catheter for pressure measurements from 0 through 10 mm Hg. The needle technique has proven to be the least accurate of the three.
