Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Compartmental pressure measurement through an electromechanical process can be readily, accurately and inexpensively accomplished with standard hospital equipment. Best results will be obtained when personnel familiar with the set up and continued use of pressure monitoring equipment are assigned for the care and recording of data. The most frequently encountered problems associated with this technique are improper settings or inadequate calibration of pressure monitors and stopcocks or thrombosis of the wick catheter itself.
