The occurrence of acute abdominal symptoms in a patient treated for acute pancreatitis may indicate gastrointestinal perforation. 3. The procedure of the paramedic in case of acute pancreatitis consists in: conducting an interview, carrying out a quick assessment of the patient, examining basic life parameters, conducting a physical examination of the abdominal cavity, administering fluids, analgesics and safe transport to the hospital.
