Nevertheless it was related to longer stay and presence of mechanical ventilation.

To summarize, overall results of this retrospective study were those expected and most often found in references. Hepatobiliary Pancreat Dis Int. Of patients with high serum lipase, 17 Of these patients, Create Your Free Account Why? High serum lipase in ventilated patients may related to ischemic phenomena in the pancreatic microcirculation and changes in the vascular tone of the body circulation, including cranial pressure, caused by alterations in blood gases and ventilation induced pressure alterations.

For the study a total of patients were recruited. Serum lipase levels in nonpancreatic abdominal pain versus acute pancreatitis.

You will be redirected to acponline. At multivariate analysis we observed the factors that most often distinguish patients with high serum lipase, longer length cahsas stay, presence of parenteral nutrition and fever.

The use of serum amylase and lipase in evaluating and managing blunt abdominal trauma. Increased lipase and amilase levels in critically ill patients.

A comparison between the two groups was made for the variables studied, considering lipase as the dependent variable. Based upon these issues, the authors proposed a study to uiperamilasemia the frequency of high serum lipase in critical patients in an intensive care unit and possible factors associated to their elevation, as well as assessment of the severity and clinical evolution of the patients.

How to cite this article.

It was verified that the proportion of cases with or without high serum lipase was similar in both genders. Pancreatitis; Lipase; Amylases; Intensive care units. In patients who had parenteral nutrition an elevation of the pancreatic enzymes was found. Abdominal TC scan is the gold standard technique for diagnosis of acute pancreatitis, to confirm diagnosis, exclude alternative diagnoses hiperanilasemia determine the severity and presence of complications.

Increased lipase and amilase levels in critically ill patients: retrospective study

Elevated serum amylase was observed in Pancreatic abscess following scrub typhus associated with multiorgan failure. In terms of mortality no statistically significant differences were found between the two groups. Serum amylase and lipase elevation is associated with intracranial events. Radiological studies abdominal ultrasound or CT scan were performed in 19 Frank B, Gottlieb K. According to the coefficient obtained, patients with high serum lipase, more frequently receive parenteral nutrition, tend to have a longer stay and develop fever.

In a review of literature few reports on acute pancreatitis in ricketsiosis are found. A minority of patients met the criteria for diagnosis of acute pancreatitis.

A minority of patients met the criteria of acute pancreatitis. Several attempts have been made to determine whether amylase is associated with any specific protein in the serum. To summarize, elevation of pancreatic enzymes in critically ill patients is a challenge and studies that would explain the clinical significance are scarce.

Elevation of serum lipase also disclosed a rise in transaminases and bilirubin which might be related to cholestasis phenomena, notably a higher frequency of billiary mud in these patients.

Values of the coefficient allow writing the discriminating function as follows: A randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial. That is why the authors proposed to conduct a retrospective study of a series of patients in a polyvalent intensive care unit with surgical neurological or clinical admissions and assess their incidence and factors related to clinical severity of these patients.

J Med Libr Assoc. With regard to the type of nutrition administered Table 4patients submitted to artificial nutrition parenteral or enteral presented high serum hiperamipasemia more often, with a statistical significance regarding parenteral nutrition, when both groups were compared.

According to the guidelines of the American College of Gastroenterology ACGdiagnosis of acute pancreatitis requires presence of at least two of the following characteristics: Pancreatic involvement during the early phase of shock. By continuing to use our website, you are agreeing to our privacy policy. Such lack of specificity implies that, although these two enzymes might point to diagnosis of acute pancreatitis, a definitive diagnosis is not warranted. Clinical significance of increased lipase levels on admission to the ICU.

That is to say, no greater gastric stasis or paralytic ileus were found hindering such form of nutrition. Nevertheless we stress that the radiological study had been performed in a small percentage of patients and according to not well explained criteria, limitations inherent to a retrospective study such as this one. As was to be expected in most patients hyperamylasemia occurred together with elevated lipase.
