|Intraabdominal Hypertension||Procedure: transducer technique||Phase 3|
Measurement of intra-abdominal pressure is simple, inexpensive, safe and accurate method in determining the presence of intra-abdominal hypertension. This measurement can guide patient management. Monitoring intra-abdominal pressure and abdominal per-fusion pressure.
for signs of abdominal compartment syndrome has become an inexpensive and useful diagnostics tool for identifying complications. An integrated approach to screening and monitoring for intra-abdominal hypertension may improve patient outcomes and decrease hospital costs. Due to the high incidence of intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome, it is essential for critical care nurses to regularly monitor intra-abdominal pressure and abdominal per-fusion pressure.
Critical care nurses have the ability to identify intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome, implement and evaluate management interventions. Nursing practice should be centered on evidence based practice guidelines . Nurses should provide a standard of care in managing patients who are at risk of intra-abdominal hypertension and abdominal compartment syndrome from pre hospital, emergency, operating room and intensive care areas

Experimental: ttransducer technique
the nurses will measure intraabdominal pressure at each shift during the day by using transducer technique
Procedure: transducer technique
the nurses will receive the intervention ( the transducer method) to measure intraabdominal pressure intraabdominal hypertension and how to measure intraabdominal pressure in the third section
Other Name: monitoring intraabdominal pressure
- improve nurses knowledge and practice about abdominal compartment syndrome [ Time Frame: 6 months ]pretest and post questionaire will be used to evaluate the improvement in nurses knowledge and practice about abdominal compartment syndrome
- prevent abdominal compartment syndrome [ Time Frame: 3 months ]measure inta-abdominal pressure correctly and continuously monitor signs of increased intrabdominal pressure
