The main etiology was due to alcohol in 15 patients On this study we found that in our hospital service we have a low frequency of the disease. We found a similar distribution between the slight and severe disease: Please fill out required fields.

The red gradient encompasses the potential mortality risk depending on the patient’s ICU admission indication drug overdose being the best, respiratory neoplasm with emergent surgery being the worst. During the daily clinical practice we often watch that the different severity scales have certain oara. Accessed December 31, Retrieved from ” https: The number of patients of this criteios does not allow us to conclude crlterios a categorical way the absence of correlation between the tomographic Balthazar finds and critfrios clinical and biochemical scales previously mentioned, how-ever it encourages us to carry on with this research.

Am Fam Physician ; A retrospective, observational and analytic study was made. It is not calculated sequentially and is not meant to show improvement or effect of interventions.

If the CT is performed before this period, the results may be lower Balthazar degrees.

It was not possible on our second study to measure it on all of the patients, but in a posterior study it would be of great importance to correlate these parameters in order to look for a better indicator to make the decision of performing or not a tomographic study in patients with slight AP.


And at that time, there was really nothing out there. The calculation method is optimized for paper schemas, by using integer values and reducing the number of options so that data fits on a single-sheet paper form. Updated November 10, The area under the ROC curve in the entire population was 0. The patient population was mostly comprised of surgical patients however. Services of 3 Internal Medicine and 4 Clinical Nutrition.

Intensive care medicine Medical scales. The user is a person, an individual. The score is not recalculated during the stay; it is by definition an admission score.

The study initially enrolled 5, patients admitted to 13 intensive care units in the United States from to In order to calculate an A-a gradient, atmospheric pressure must be known, which is dependent on elevation default mmHg or kPa at sea level. When possible, data about the interval time between the patient’s arrival to hospital and the ICU admission time are collected. There exist few studies that correlate these parameters. UK guidelines for the management of acute pancreatitis.

To all the Gastroenterology medical staff of Mexico’s General Hospital for their invaluable support. Subcategory of ‘Diagnosis’ designed to be very sensitive Rule Out. This score can be calculated on all patients newly admitted to the intensive care unit. An important consideration was the impossibility to correlate the tomographic finds with the serum concentration crierios reactive C proteins, which is considered until the present moment the best prognosis indicator of AP.

It is proved that we can have patients who are classified with slight disease by means of the Ranson, APACHE-II or hematocrit criteria, however while performing the computed tomography, we found advanced Balthazar degrees, which indicate us that these scales pancreatitie not be the only parameter to be taken into account to make the decision of performing or not this radiologic study in patients with slight acute pancreatitis.


Must be evident prior to hospitalization. To save favorites, you must log in. The correlation coefficients for the Balthazar scale were: The evaluation of the severity criyerios one of the most important discussions on the AP handling. The inability, for whatever reason, of healthcare to achieve the same degree of technology that the banking and retail and all other large industries have, is going to be seen as the major shortcoming of modern times.
