The K-matrix approach with effective Lagrangians is used to describe the S and P pion-nucleon partial-wave amplitudes in the energy range GeV. It is demonstrated, that treating the resonance as K-matrix a pole gives the natural way to separate the resonance and non-resonance parts of the amplitude. The model includes all the four-star resonances, the non-resonance contributions are calculated from relevant Feynman graphs without any phenomenological form factors. Different contributions to the inelastic amplitude are estimated.
