Compartment Syndrome
The Issue

Compartment Syndrome can occur from severe injury or over exertion. Even when physicians are well versed in the signs and symptoms of compartment syndrome, the clinical presentation is sometimes indefinite and confusing.
A timely diagnosis is crucial.

Muscle Damage

Reversible (3-4 hours)Irreversible (8+ hours)Variable (4-8 hours)

Nerve Damage

Decrease Conduction (1-2 hours)Irreversible (6+ hours)Neuropraxia (2-6 hours)

The Solution

Quick and simple
pressure monitor

Hand-held monitor for
accurate measurement of
compartmental pressure

Continuous monitoring/treadmill testing application

Compartment syndrome can develop in patients with palpable pulse, acceptable color, and normal sensory examinations. It should be suspected in any extremity that has sustained high-energy soft tissue or bone trauma, arterial disruption, a burn, or limb compression. The one factor that must be present in compartment syndrome is increased tissue pressure. The STIC Intra-Compartmental Pressure Monitor System is a convenient, self-contained, and reliable unit for an immediate or continuous reading of compartment pressure.

Improper use of the device may result in improper measurement
