Acute limb compartment syndrome (ALCS) is a serious complication of traumatic injury. Although ALCS can occur in any limb, it most commonly occurs following injury to the lower leg, particularly in fractures of the tibia.

Most of the literature recommends that patients at risk of ALCS should be carefully monitored, with a focus on pain as the main symptom. However, patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) who are unconscious or sedated may be unable to report pain or are unreliable in doing so, therefore it is necessary to consider alternative assessments for ALCS...
