110. Orbital compartment syndrome

Our good friend Dr Mazzoli created a publication from the vision center for excellence.  OCS (orbital compartment syndrome) can result from trauma to the head, face and orbit, resulting in increased pressure behind the eye threatening the retina and optic nerve. This is a potentially preventible cause of blindness. This podcast discusses what OCS is.  You need to learn it on a specimen. It is relatively straightforward.  You can look for it on youtube.  The document will go out in the next Med newsletter and can also be found on PJ med.com
