- Nutritional support is considered a key part of management of patients with acute pancreatitis.
. - Feeding should be attempted in all patients if cardiovascularly stable, and parenteral nutrition should not be considered
unless enteral feeding is not tolerated.
Placement of feeding tubes should be considered as the standard for providing nutritional support in hyporexic patients
with acute pancreatitis.
Parenteral nutrition still has a place in the management of patients with acute pancreatitis, but it is to be reserved for
patients who fail to tolerate enteral nutrition.
