We have some experience with compartment syndrome from our trauma 
patient population and have made some general observations.  The 
numbers are small and certainly not a scientific sampling.  Generally 
the waveforms obtained from the popliteal artery have been the most 
reproducible and show a low velocity staccatto signal, as you 
gofurther down the tibials the signal remains low velocity, staccato, 
however net forward flow and net reverse flow are almost equal.  
Please let me know what your experience has been.
