Background: Acute pancreatitis is a sudden inflammation of the pancreas. Occurs in order of frequency including a gallstone impacted in the common bile duct beyond the point where the pancreatic duct joins it; heavy alcohol use; systemic disease; trauma; and, in minor mumps. Acute pancreatitis may be a single event; it may be recurrent; or it may progress to chronic pancreatitis.
Objectives: To study the treatment outcomes of opioid analgesics by using case summaries and discharge medication chart. To assess the safety measures to be followed during the therapy of opioid analgesics. To minimise the ADR`S.
Methods: A prospective study about the efficacy and safety measurement of opioid analgesics in the treatment of acute pancreatitis was held in a tertiary care hospital.
Results: During the study it was observed that many patients have been suffered with severe abdominal pain prior to the treatment with opioid analgesics. This severity of pain is far most better after the treatment.
