Acute pancreatitis is a potentially life-threatening condition with the clinical presentation ranging from mild dehydration due to vomiting and inappetence through to severe systemic complications, including disseminated intravascular coagulation, acute lung injury and death. During this webinar we’ll review current concepts in the management of acute pancreatitis, including anti-emetic and analgesic strategies and the management of systemic complications. In addition we’ll look at the changing approach to the nutritional support of these patients.
