The dissertation 'Intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome: epidemiology and markers of adverse outcomes' focuses on different aspects of intra-abdominal pressure, intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome, which occur in severely injured and sick patients on the intensive care. The aim of the research was to find methods that recognize these disorders early and accurately. In addition, the research has provided much insight into how often these conditions occur, how they are treated and what the outcomes are. Many different methods have been used for this research. Among other things, it concerned two prospective studies that were conducted in four different hospitals in the Netherlands.
