Abstract

Pneumatic antishock garments (PASG) are frequently used to initially support and manage traumatic hypovolemic shock. PASG have been implicated in the development of complicating compartment syndromes of the lower extremities, but cause and effect have not been clearly defined. The present report documents the occurrence of bilateral compartment syndromes in uninjured lower extremities after using PASG and reviews similar reported cases.
