This is the official app of the Abdominal Compartment Society. Formerly known as the World Society of the Abdominal Compartment Syndrome.
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 WSACS supports the FOAM principle (Free Open Access Medical education). All who have an interest in the diagnosis, management, and/or treatment of IAH/ACS are invited to join the Society via a FREE lifetime membership.
