        > No, not the same thing. Basically, layers of fascia separate different areas from muscle. Muscle, nerves and blood vessels lie beneath the layer of fascia, as if being covered by insulation. Fascia does not expand, so when the area has large swelling, it creates a great deal of muscle inside this "compartment", thus the name of the syndrome. If the pressure is not relieved, permanent nerve damage can occur, possibly leading to amputation. Surgery is needed right away, wounds are left open and surgery is repeated a second time. This can be caused by a tight dressing or a cast too tight, in addition to many other types of trauma from accidents, etc. Hope this helps. There is more info available to help you via internet sources. If you just google it, you will find lots of info, just stay away from wikipedia. as far as what to do next, some people do better moving on to something else and coming back to it later when their emotions are under control, but it
        > is a personal choice. You have to wait to retake it anyway. Someone else many be of more help with this, since I have never taken those exams. I got my ASN 18 years ago the old fashioned way and have been doing my BSN through EC. But, anything I can do to help, I am happy to. this just happens some times. We have all failed a test or two in the grand scheme of things. Don't beat yourself, up, just move forward!  Good luck. Robin Sullivan, RN-BC CMSRN

        > Thank you Robin. So is compartment syndrome basically third spacing? I think I was getting them mixed up. Do you think I should keep studying for this one and retake it or move on to transitions? It's crazy because I've done so well up until now. I've passed all of my nursing tests except this one. So it just sucks! But I will keep going :) I really thought I was ready for this exam.

Just a word to the wise, compartment syndrome has showed up on every nursing exam I have ever had, from nursing school tests to the NCLEX to even my med surg certification exam. Get it down and keep it in your memory the best you can. The most important thing to remember is patient having pain and swelling way out of proportion to the injury. Important to recognize it early as they can lose their limb. As far as the exam, I believe you can take it 3 times. You will do better next time!  Robin Sullivan, RN-BC CMSRN

I had taken the first practice exam and got a 56 and then after studying took the second and got a 70 and felt I knew the material. The neuro got me, kept asking me questions about compartment syndrome and I couldn't remember anything about it. This was my second attempt at this test, how many times do we get to take an exam? Should I move on to transitions or just retake this one. Any suggestions? Thank you.
