Kaplan, behavioral sciences, p.126 about phencyclidine intoxication:
"One should not maintain these patient in mechanical restraints for
more then 24 hours due to a danger of renal compromise".

Do they mean that mechanical restraints lead to the tissue
hypoperfusion followed by reperfusion syndrome (when the constrains
are released) that may lead to acute renal failure?

Thank you for your time and cooperation.
