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. If only medicine had been able to see that, and somehow make that transition from developing an information system for an institution or a practice as opposed to developing it for the individuals using it.

The score was derived in a general ICU population and may be less precise when applied to specific populations such as liver failure or HIV patients. Mortalidad materna en cuidados intensivos: For a better determination of the disease’s severity, it must be performed 2 to 3 days after the beginning of the symptoms.

Subcategory of ‘Diagnosis’ designed to be very sensitive Rule Out. Critical Care Medicine ;15 1: The most frequent etiology was due to alcohol Critical Care Medice ; Teddy Osmin Tamargo Barbeito, Dra.

It can be suggested that there does not exist a statistically pancreatittis correlation between the APACHE-II scale of seriousness and the advanced Balthazar degrees due to the report of a poor correlation between Pearson and Spearman’s, therefore it is likely to find apaache ill patients with an A or B Balthazar and on the other hand patients with slight acute pancreatitis with D o E Balthazar.

NationaI Institutes of Health.

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. Accessed December 31, I remember we had a research associate who was hiking in the Himalayas, and she was hospitalized in Kuala Lumpur, she said there was nothing in the hospital, some oxygen, no mattresses.

The panreatitis of the severity is one of the most important discussions on the AP handling.

Evaluación del pronóstico de mortalidad por los índices de gravedad APACHE II y IV

And at that time, there was really nothing out there. Juneja D, et al. Material and methods A retrospective, observational and analytic study was made.


The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality. Practice guidelines in acute pancreatitis.

These were measured during the first 24 hours after admission, and utilized in addition to information about previous health status recent surgery, history of severe organ insufficiency, immunocompromised state and baseline demographics such as age. Consensus on the diagnosis and treatment of acute pancreatitis.

Therefore, to have or not an advanced Balthazar does not necessarily critrios a serious pancreatic disease or a systemic inflammatory response, and on the other hand to have a slight disease by means of clinical and biochemical criteria does not mean a lower degree on the tomographic Balthazar classification.

The worst physiological variables were collected within the first 24 hours of ICU admission. So it was important at that time to not so much reinvent the diagnostic system, but to talk about how patients come in at different levels of severity.
