Acute pancreatitis, an extensive inflammatory response due to pancreatic cells synthesizing and secreting inflammatory mediators, is the most common gastrointestinal disorder requiring hospitalization. There are multiple etiologies for pancreatitis, with the three most prevalent being biliary disease, alcohol use, and idiopathic reasons. This CE session will dive into pancreatic function and the diagnosis and management of pancreatitis, with particular focus on severe cases. Additionally, this illuminating presentation will provide nurse practitioners with critical information regarding the complications of severe pancreatitis, including pseudocysts and parenchymal necrosis, as well as the latest treatment options.

A few of the other discussions in this session are as follows:
• Diagnostic imaging
• Fluid resuscitation
• Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI)
