Brief Summary:
The investigators aim to compare the bladder pressure to the gastric pressure in critically ill patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Critically Ill Patients Procedure: measurement of abdominal pressure Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
In critically ill patients, we will measure the gastric pressure by a gastric balloon and the bladder pressure by the intra-vesical pressure to find the optimal method to estimate the abdominal pressure.
