Glasgow-Imrie Criteria for Severity of Acute Pancreatitis

Determines severity of pancreatitis based on 8 laboratory values.

These criteria are traditionally scored with values at 48 hours after admission.

Advice

The Glasgow-Imrie Criteria are comparable to the Ranson's criteria, but both have a disadvantage of requiring a 48 hours delay before they can be appropriately applied. Studies have suggested a binary cutoff at ≥3 as suggesting a significant increase in likelihood of severe pancreatitis.

Management

Local management algorithms using the criteria have been published; none are validated.

Critical Actions

The Glasgow-Imrie Criteria require using peak laboratory values and can be appropriately applied only at 48 hours after admission.
