Sudden Compartment Syndrome


Has anyone come across Sudden Compartment Syndrome.
I’m trying to better understand the specific biological process/mechanisms that trigger this symptom .
Thanks in advance – Dallas


Terrain answer:

Yes, my brother developed Compartment syndrome in the hospital after two psychiatric drugs he was prescribed (with known contraindications) caused him to collapse and his heart to stop. The emergency room drugs that they applied caused the compartment syndrome and then he required a fasciotomy in his arm and his leg. (Don’t look up fasciotomy if you are squeamish.) He also ended up in a coma for 8 days in the ICU and in kidney failure.
