Prompt measurement of intra-abdominal hypertension
by either an IVC pressure catheter, or by bladder or intragastric pressure monitoring is essential, and if treatment is to be undertaken, the risk of decompressive laparotomy and an open abdomen in a moribund child on ECLS must be balanced against the anticipated reversibility of the primary disease process.
