STIC Pressure Monitor

Intra-Compartmental Pressure Monitoring System


STIC Intra-Compartmental Pressure Monitor

The STIC Intra-Compartmental Pressure Monitor System is a convenient, self-contained, and reliable unit for quick and continuous readings of compartment pressure


A timely and accurate diagnosis of compartment syndrome is critical to your patient outcomes. Prevent irreversible muscle and nerve damage, infection, and amputation with intra-compartmental pressure testing. Formerly made by Stryker and now through C2Dx, STIC has been long recognized as the gold standard device to aid in the diagnosis of compartment syndrome. Reinforced by decades of clinical evidence support, the STIC Pressure Monitor is the product you can rely on.


“Compartment pressures are a vital adjunct for diagnosis. Measuring has little risk; not measuring can lead to permanent deformity and dysfunction.”

The Issue

A timely diagnosis of compartment syndrome is critical

Compartment syndrome can occur as a result of severe injury or over-exertion. Even when physicians are well versed in the signs and symptoms of compartment syndrome, the clinical presentation is sometimes indefinite and confusing. A timely diagnosis is crucial.


To better your understanding of the cost of a delayed or missed diagnosis, the litigation section of our Clinical Insights library will shed some light on the necessity of quick and accurate results provided by the STIC.


The Solution

Definitive pressure measurements for your clinical assessments

The STIC Intra-Compartmental Pressure Monitor adds valuable data to your clinical assessment for a prompt and more informed decision. Compartment syndrome can develop in patients with palpable pulse, acceptable color, and normal sensory examinations. It should be suspected in any extremity that has sustained high-energy soft tissue or bone trauma, arterial disruption, burns, or limb compression. The one factor that must be present in compartment syndrome is increased tissue pressure.


Add definitive pressure measurements to your clinical assessment (the 5P’s) for data-driven and evidence-based decisions.
