Compartments are groups of muscle tissue, blood vessels, and nerves in your arms and legs surrounded by a very strong membrane called the fascia. Compartment syndrome is a serious condition that occurs when there’s a large amount of pressure inside a muscle compartment. This syndrome results from bleeding or swelling after an injury. The dangerously high pressure in compartment syndrome delays the flow of blood to and from the affected tissues. It can lead to muscle and nerve damage and problems with blood flow.
HOW IS COMPARTMENT SYNDROME DIAGNOSED?
A General Physician may first conduct a complete physical examination and enquire about the injury. For further diagnosis, he or she may need to measure the pressure inside the body compartment by inserting a needle into the affected area and monitoring the pressure. Laboratory and imaging tests may support diagnosis
