I. 臨床症狀： 1. Severe pain in muscle compartment 2. Marked increase in pain with passive stretch of muscles in the compartment 3. Marked swelling of the compartment 4. Marked tenseness of the muscle compartment 5. Neuropathy, myelopathy, and/or encephalopathy II. 骨骼肌腔室壓力測量： 1. Greater than 40 mmHg in the uncompromised host 2. Rising serial compartment pressure measurements as values approach 35 mmHg mmHg in mildly compromised host (diabetic, peripheral vascular disease, collagen vascular disease, etc.) mmHg in hypotensive patients where systolic blood pressure is 33 to 50% lower than is expected. 下二項任一時建議輔以 HBO 2 ： 在 I. 臨床症狀 內有 3 項以上。 在 II. 骨骼肌腔室壓力測量 內有任何一項。 評估骨骼肌群 Compartment Syndrome
ADJUNCTIVE HYPERBARIC OXYGEN TREATMENT FOR 8 PATIENTS WITH CRUSH SYNDROME IN DEVASTATING EARTHQUAKE. SY Yu. Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, Department of Surgery, Changhua Christian Hospital, Changhua City, Taiwan 500 BACKGROUND: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been reported as an useful adjunct for the management of crush injuries. A devastating earthquake scaled 7.3 hit central Taiwan in the early morning on Sep. 21, 1999, and aftershocks scaled between 5 to 6 persisted for months. Changhua Christian Hospital, the nearest medical center to the quake region, has received more than 2000 emergent trasferral during the disaster. CASE REPORT: There were 8 severely injured patients managed with both traditional treatments and adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Two of them received amputation finally. An 8-year-old girl with severe crush over both lower limbs lost her left leg by a below-knee amputation because of irreversible gangrenous change and uncontrolled sepis. Hypoxia of her right leg was reversed by fasciotomy and intensive HBOT. A 6-year-old girl with duodenal perforation and totally crushed left lower limb underwent emergent laparotomy, fasciotomy and early HBOT. An inevitable transmetatarsal amputation was done for her to remove the gangrenous part of foot. A back hoes tilted over a 25-year-old young man resulting in an open tibial fracture and severe crush, which was corrected by repeated operations and HBOT. Compartment syndrome also developed in another 4 patients, and relieved with no or mild neurologic deficit after 5 to 20 dives of HBOT. A 6-year-old girl with cardiac tamponade underwent emergent cardiac ventricle repair and depended on ventilator for pulmonary contussion postoperatively. The sternotomy wound was dehescenced and deeply infected, but healed well after repeated operations and 12 dives of HBOT. CONCLUSION: With the benefit of promoting wound healing, decreasing infection and shortening hospital day, these cases are to be presented to conclude that early adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy plays an important role in the treatment of crush syndrome.
