Yes. It sounds like inflammation in the pancreas (pancreatitis, which is usually associated with abdominal pain and nausea) led to stomach contents coming up the esophagus and traveling down the windpipe into the lungs (bronchoaspiration). This typically causes a severe pneumonitis (inflammation and cell breakdown in the lungs) and pneumonia, leading to decreased ability to breathe and bring oxygen into the lungs (anoxemia). This is usually a various serious and often fatal situation.
