So we started looking at the role of using physiology of a patient in the intensive care unit and to then develop a comprehensive measure of severity that could at least begin to discriminate one patient from another better than the DRG.

Until the present day there are few studies in literature that try to correlate these differences, this is why we have focused on the performance of a study in our hospital, trying to observe how frequent is the discrepancy between the severity degree and the tomographic finds according to the Balthazar classification.

But at that time, technology was getting a lot better, computers were beginning to run faster, we had a lot more computer speed, and we envisioned the future even in the late ’80s and early ’90s that we could have an algorithmic-based system that would retrieve data automatically for people, and be able to help them make critical decisions based on how sick the patient was, whether the therapy was working, how long the patient was anticipated to stay, etc.

The study did not have a pre-defined validation population, so validation crierios within the original training group.

People would use one single blood test, like a blood lactate level, and then they would pick a threshold, above this or below that. The acute pancreatitis AP keeps on being one of the gastrointestinal pathologies with more incidence and that can unchain a significative mortality.

In relation to the Ranson criteria, It was not possible on criteruos 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. Teddy Osmin Tamargo Barbeito, Dra.

The “worst” measurement was defined as the measure that correlated to the highest number of points. While it is not mandatory and will not help with patient management, it is a useful tool for risk stratification and to compare the care received by patients with similar risk characteristics in different units.
