Abstract: It is well known that an elevated intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) can lead to harmful and even lethal conditions. IAP is thought to be an underestimated factor in a variety of pathophysiological processes outside critical care, like in complications of pregnancy. To assess the significance of IAP in some pregnancy-related diseases, a reliable and repeatable method needs to be established to measure IAP in the pregnant population. The FoleyManometer Low Volume (FMLV) (Holtech Medical, Charlottenlund, Denmark) is a safe, easy to use and cost-effective device to measure IAP via the urinary bladder.
