Compartment Syndrome involves compression of nerves and blood vessels within an enclosed space. This leads to impaired blood flow and muscle/nerve damage. This occurs when a fracture has not been elevated and has not had ice packs. Fluid accumulates in the tissue and impairs tissue perfusion. The muscle becomes swollen and hard and the patient complains of SEVERE PAIN that is not relieved with pain meds.
When swelling &amp; discoloration occur - worry about compartment syndrome. May result in nerve damage and possible amputation. You could lose your extremity!
Common areas are the forearm and quadriceps.
