Fluid Resuscitation in Pancreatitis
Show Notes

The standard of care for pancreatitis has been aggressive (liters) of intravenous fluids. New data suggests that this level of fluid resuscitation may not be needed – and possibly harmful. Join host Geoff Wall as he evaluates the role of fluids in pancreatitis treatment.

The GameChanger
In patients with mild disease, moderate fluid resuscitation is safer than aggressive fluid use.
