The impact of neglecting under-hood pressure on the aeroelastic predictions was assessed using the V1 model by eliminating the mapped V2 engine compartment pressure within the FEM model.
There are multiple methods described in the literature for measuring compartment pressures. Two of the most common are a side port needle or a slit catheter.
If the acute compartment syndrome is clinically suspected, the compartment pressure should be measured.
Compartment pressures were obtained by injecting saline into the affected compartments using a Stryker Intra-Compartmental Pressure Monitor (Kalamazoo, MI) which returned readings of 36 mmHg and 72 mmHg in the left forearm and right triceps, respectively.
Compartment pressure measurement can confirm the diagnosis in suspected patients.
Measurement of compartment pressures is indicated when patient presentation is atypical or the patient's ability to sense or communicate pain is reduced.
