Great lecture and Dr. Raj is wonderful. My only comment would be to add a bit of information about the pathogenesis tied to the different etiologies

 
Indications of necrosectomy and empiric antibiotic therapy
By Miguel L. on 12. June 2018 for Pancreatitis: Diagnosis & Management

YOU DO NECROSECTOMY ONLY IN CASES OF INFECTED NECROSIS AFTER 4 WEEKS OF ADMISSION

 
it is interesting and entertaining but it would be better if every thing mention like CXR atelectasis, ERCP, could go into depth
By Raul S. on 25. April 2018 for Acute Pancreatitis

the lession is very insteresting, but i think i could be explained a little better, showing and explaining an image of CXR of atelectasis, sentinel loop AXR. Also it coulde be better if hidroclorotiazied mecanism way of producing muscle weakness is explained after answering the question of the quizz, and the indications of the ERCP explained. Thanks
