ACUTE PANCREATITIS-SCORING SYSTEMS

1. Multiple systems have been developed over the years, including Ranson and Glasgow. However, neither of these scoring systems has been validated in larger trials.

2. APACHE II > 8 for severe disease.

3. BISAP ( B UN > 25, I mpaired mental status, S IRS, A ge > 60 years, P leural effusion) has similar reliability for mortality (but not other indices) to the APACHE II with the added benefit that BISAP can be done at the bedside.
