BACKGROUND: According to recommendations, intraabdominal pressure should be monitored every 8 hours for patients at high risk of abdominal compartment syndrome. Continuous intraabdominal pressure monitoring may be valuable for these patients. METHODS: For 15 patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery, a pressure monitor was introduced after formation of pneumoperitoneum. During the procedure, the laparoscopic insufflator pressure was varied. The pressure monitor values and the time to equilibrium were recorded. RESULTS: Altogether, 152 pressure recordings were taken for the patients studied. The measurements from the insufflator and pressure monitor were compared using a Bland-Altman plot. The mean difference between the techniques was 0.04 +/- 3.8, and 95% of the points from the pressure monitor were within two standard deviations of the mean difference. Pressure changes were essentially "real time."CONCLUSIONS: The intracompartmental pressure monitor provides accurate, rapid, and direct measurement of intraabdominal pressure, and may be a useful tool for continuous intraabdominal pressure measurement among patients at risk of abdominal compartment syndrome.
