Abstract

Acute compartment syndrome as a result of an extravasation injury is rare. The perioperative environment presents a unique risk that may contribute to more serious patient outcomes. Using a case study approach we report that the placement of a pulse oximeter on the cannulated limb can function as the first sign of vascular compromise.
