The primary mission of the WSACS is to promote research, foster education, and improve the survival of patients with intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) by sharing information on effective management strategies. The following instructional materials are provided to aid in the education of physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, and other healthcare providers.
The WSACS has created three algorithms detailing the current state-of-the-art diagnosis and management of IAH / ACS.
The IAH/ACS Management, and IAH/ACS Medical Management algorithms may be freely downloaded for educational and patient care purposes. Reproduction of the algorithms in either print or electronic publications requires copyright permission from the WSACS.
