- The severity of IAH during the first 2 weeks of the ICU stay was identified as an independent predictor of 28- and 90-day mortality, while the presence of IAH on the day of ICU admission did not predict mortality.
- Body mass index (BMI), APACHE II score greater than or equal to 18, presence of abdominal distension, absence of bowel sounds, and positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) greater than or equal to 7 cm H2O were independently associated with the development of IAH at any time during the observation period.
- In subjects without IAH on day 1, BMI combined with daily positive fluid balance and PEEP greater than or equal to 7 cm H2O (as documented on the day before IAH occurred) were associated with the development of IAH during the first week in the ICU.
