Our muscles and organs are divided into compartments held together by connective tissue. Damage to the compartments can cause a condition called compartment syndrome, which can cause painful swelling. Dr. Daryl Osbahr, an orthopedic surgeon at Union Memorial Hospital, said if the condition isn't treated soon enough, it can cause long-term damage. What is compartment syndrome and what causes it? Compartment syndrome occurs when an insufficient amount of blood is distributed to other structures within that compartment or enclosed space resulting in a lack of oxygen and nutrients within that area of the body, including the arm, leg, or any other enclosed space.

A man operating a crane was critically injured yesterday after being crushed by falling machinery while working in the same Annapolis development where a man was killed in a similar accident last year. The incident occurred as state regulators prepare for a public hearing on stricter safety standards for crane operators. The 46-year-old man was sitting in a compartment of a crane that was preparing to lift heating and cooling units onto the roof of a gym in the Annapolis Towne Centre when a pulley and other parts tumbled down about 7 a.m., fire officials said.

NEW YORK -- Police scuba divers inspecting the hull of an oil tanker in New York Harbor made an unusual discovery recently, and it was not only the 366 pounds of cocaine hidden under water in the rudder compartment.It was also the people who were guarding it: two shivering and louse-infested Colombians who had survived five stormy days in a 10-foot air pocket, virtual prisoners of the sea.Customs officials said the tanker crew knew nothing of the stowaways, who had smuggled themselves into the rudder compartment by raft in Cartagena, Colombia, when the compartment was above water.

Lip service You can have a little fun with your lipsticks and get greater use out of them if you follow the example of professional makeup artists. Instead of toting dozens of lipsticks to photo sessions, they travel with plastic drugstore pillboxes that are divided into compartments of six, which they've filled with various melted-down lipsticks.Makeup artist Janice Kinigopoulos suggests trying it first with all those lipsticks you never wear because they're too dark, light or too bright.

THE RED CENTER, AUSTRALIA / / Ten days, one wallaby, no kangaroos. My fantasy -- adorable 'roos galumphing around every bush in the Outback -- was just that. Camels -- wild ones -- were another matter. About 60,000 of the feral beasts roam the Outback that unfolded outside the picture window of my train compartment. I had come to Australia to ride the Ghan, the legendary train that bisects the country, traveling from Adelaide in the south to Darwin in the north. It's sometimes called the "Hundred Year Dream" -- the last track was laid just two years ago, capping nearly a century of struggle to connect one end of this great emptiness to the other.

FALLUJAH, Iraq - After nearly 18 hours in the claustrophobic urban canyons that constitute the front lines of the battle for Fallujah, the crew members of the lead Bradley Fighting Vehicle were cramped, weary and low on ammunition. Then they came under heavy enemy fire for the first time all week. Within 15 minutes, as shooting erupted around them, their radio crackled with the news that their company commander's vehicle, blocks behind them, had been hit by a rocket-propelled grenade.

A Memorable Place By Tom Potts SPECIAL TO THE SUN By rail into the Alps with new friends I have been fascinated with railroads all my life, so the decision to buy 15-day Eurail Passes for a European vacation was an easy one. For two weeks, my wife and I traveled in luxurious comfort through the heart of Europe. The most memorable of our rail journeys was the nearly 10-hour trip from Vienna to Zurich. On a crisp November morning, we boarded Train 62 for a prompt departure at 9 o'clock.

A state appellate court ruled yesterday that police who found drugs in a secret compartment during a traffic stop improperly relied on information they got months before, when an auto mechanic let police search the minivan while it was being repaired. The ruling by the Court of Special Appeals erases the drug convictions of a former Salisbury man whose arrest 2 1/2 years ago led to recent federal indictments of seven people - himself included - that officials said made up a lucrative Eastern Shore drug ring.

IT'S ONE OF those tragedies that sounds totally preposterous until it becomes incomprehensibly real: more than 149 corpses found scattered around a rundown crematory in Georgia. What happened in Georgia is an anomaly; most of the nation's commercial crematories operate without complaint. But as this horrifying turn of events proves, that doesn't mean the industry is problem-free. A decade ago, for example, the decaying corpse of a former Burbank, Calif., mayor was found in a refrigeration compartment -- four months after his widow had received what purportedly were his ashes.

The desire for efficiency during a trip to Italy, Austria and Hungary last summer led my wife and me to book an overnight sleeping compartment on a train from Padua, Italy, to Vienna, Austria. Although we had read warnings about the high potential for theft on overnight trains, we felt, given our experiences on several previous trips to the United Kingdom and Europe, that we would have no trouble. We boarded the train just before midnight and were the first to occupy the compartment. The conductor said two people would be joining us at the first stop, and we turned in for the night.

"Confinements," at UMBC, is a show that works almost all the way. Almost.It is the latest in the fine arts gallery's "Baltimore to Washington" (read regional artists) series. It has a curator in Andrea Pollan of Washington; it has a theme, exploring confinement of several kinds from physical to psychical to sociological; it has a catalog with an essay by Pollan and photographs of the five works on view; and four of the five relate to the theme.As Pollan writes, these works exist in a realm between sculpture and architecture; they are the size of sculpture, but they communicate architecturally.

NEW LONDON, Conn. - Floating in the harbor outside the Groton Naval Base is an enormous tube of black steel, so bulky it seems inconceivable it could indeed float. But since 1952, when this tube, equipped with torpedoes and 111 crew and officers, was commissioned as the world's first nuclear-powered submarine, its belly has never touched ground. These days the USS Nautilus is a museum, a relic of the Cold War and once seemingly permanent records of speed and distance. Its cramped passageways wind like a maze through compartment after compartment furnished with metal piping and metal walls and doors, almost all painted a pale green.
