    Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) is frequently present in the critically ill and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Conventionally, intermittent ‘spot-check’ manual measurements of bladder pressure in those perceived as high risk are used as surrogates for intra-abdominal pressure (IAP). True patterns of IAH remain unknown. We explored the incidence of IAH in cardiac surgery patients and describe the intra-and postoperative course of IAP using a novel, high frequency, automated bladder pressure measurement system.
