Spinal cord injury syndromes

Another quick reference since these seem to show up on board exams from time to time. The bottom line in any suspected spinal cord injury is immobilization of the C spine with a semirigid collar, and keeping the patient supine. Steroids haven’t been proven to be necessarily beneficial, and MRI is the imaging test of choice.

Critical Care

The modern-era abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) was first described as a ‘new’ clinical entity in the 1980s in emergency surgery patients, despite being described over 100 years earlier [1]. This stimulated scientific research leading to a better understanding of ACS, and the development of strategies to prevent and treat the condition [2]. Simultaneously, several investigators described the impact of the prelude to ACS – intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH), where organ function is impaired at lower intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) in the range of 12–20 mmHg [3]. This new knowledge has improved our understanding of the interactions between the different body compartments and new pathophysiologic terms have been coined, such as the polycompartment syndrome [4]. Within this concept, abdominal wall compliance seems to be a key factor that has only recently been better investigated [5].
