in two very different forms. Acute pancreatitis
is sudden while chronic pancreatitis is characterized
by recurring or persistent abdominal pain with or without steatorrhea
or diabetes mellitus.
Symptoms of Pancreatitis
- Severe upper abdominal pain, with radiation through to the back,
is the hallmark of pancreatitis.
- Nausea and vomiting (emesis) are prominent symptoms.
- The blood pressure may be high (when pain is prominent) or low
(if internal bleeding or dehydration has occurred).
- Typically, both the heart and respiratory rates are elevated.
- Abdominal tenderness is usually found but may be less severe
than expected given the patient's degree of abdominal pain.
- Bowel sounds may be reduced as a reflection of the reflex bowel
paralysis (i.e. ileus) that may accompany any abdominal catastrophe.
