Compartment pressure testing

Compartment pressure testing is a test where the pressures in one or more of the compartments of the lower legs are tested in order to clarify a diagnosis of compartment syndrome.

Compartment syndrome is a limb-threatening and life-threatening condition which occurs after an injury, when there is not enough blood to supply the muscles and nerves with oxygen and nutrients, which leads to nerve damage.
