Abbreviation for Bedside Index for Severity in Acute Pancreatitis
A simple clinically validated system which provides a prognostic index for patients with acute pancreatitis.
BISAP One point is assigned for each of the following:
• Blood urea nitrogen >25 mg / dl
• Impaired mental status (Glasgow coma score of < 15)
• Systemic inflammatory response syndrome–SIRS
• Age > 60 years
• Pleural effusion detected on imaging.
A BISAP score of ≥ 3 within 24 h of presentation predicts development of intermediate markers of severity.
