Abstract

The use of the wick catheter to measure intracompartmental muscle pressure in equine muscle was documented. The presence of muscle compartments involving the extensor carpi radialis muscle and the long head of the triceps brachii was demonstrated by anatomic dissection and radiographic technique. The wick catheter was capable of accurately measuring pressures within both of these compartments. Furthermore, the wick catheter was sensitive to pressure changes resulting from external compression of muscle compartments. Manipulation of systemic blood pressure and PaCO2 in 1 anesthetized horse did not affect intracompartmental muscle pressure.
