    At the age of 36, Nola Borcherds could hardly walk ten steps without gasping for breath. A viral infection years earlier had weakened her heart and left her with a constant wheezy chest. Her heart was failing and she needed a new one. No transplant was available, but the next best thing was an implant called HeartWare. Unlike pacemakers, which send an electrical pulse to keep it beating regularly, the device would attach to Nola’s heart and keep her alive by taking over its function, continuously pumping blood around the body. Brochures promised the gadget could be life changing. It

    A promise to ensure that people with severe asthma and smokers who want to quit can get the drugs they need has been broken by ministers and the NHS, a health service report reveals. Health charities criticised the persistent lack of access to vital medications for patients in England as very worrying and warned that it could damage the health of those affected. In 2019 the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England, Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) and makers of branded medicines signed an agreement, called the voluntary scheme, to increase the

    Tens of thousands of defibrillators across the UK risk being unusable because 999 call handlers do not know about them. When someone has a cardiac arrest, ambulance staff can only direct bystanders to the nearest defibrillator if it is on a central register. "That could be the difference between life and death," said Adam Fletcher, head of British Heart Foundation Cymru. A campaign to register defibrillators on The Circuit has now been launched. Survival rates are low in the more than 30,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests each year in the UK, according to the British Heart

    While under continual cardiac monitoring from the 6– 8 March 2021, Ann Geraghty experienced two periods of ventricular standstill which were recorded but missed. Had these been detected she would have been admitted into a Critical Care Unit, though the Coroner noted that her subsequent cardiac arrest could not have been prevented. The Coroner raises concerns that: The Philips central monitoring station used by the hospital detected the two periods of ventricular standstill but its alarm notification self-terminated when the heart rhythm had corrected. Following the Trust’s i

    An expensive anti-cholesterol drug called inclisiran could soon be offered to hundreds of thousands of people in England and Wales on the NHS. The drug, which would be administered as a twice-a-year injection, costs around £2,000 per dose, could save about 30,000 lives within a decade. "Inclisiran represents a potential game-changer in preventing thousands of people from dying prematurely from heart attacks and strokes. We're therefore pleased to be able to recommend it as a cost effective option on the NHS." Said Meindert Boysen, NICE deputy chief executive and director of the Centre for

    Safety recommendations HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement amends the ‘Saving Babies’ Lives care bundle version 2’ to enhance the role of the ‘fetal monitoring lead’ to include, training and competency checks of all maternity staff on the use and functionality of cardiotocograph (CTG) equipment. HSIB recommends that NHS England and NHS Improvement amends the ‘Saving Babies’ Lives care bundle version 2’ to remove specific references to DawesRedman and instead use a generic term such as ‘computerised cardiotocograph (CTG) analysis’. HSIB recommends that the Nat

    NHS England have issued a safety alert on the risk of inappropriate anticoagulation of patients with a mechanical heart valve. Published guidance supported clinical teams in reviewing patients being treated with a vitamin K antagonist (VKA) early on in the pandemic and change their medication to an alternative anticoagulant where needed. However, there have been reports that those with a mechanical heart valve have been prescribed a molecular weight heparin (LMWH) or a direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) which the guidance lists as an exception to its use in such patients. The a

    Evidence for this coroner’s report raised concerns about annual surveillance of aortic stents using CT scanning, noting that when 3D reconstruction was not used in this process there is a risk of leaks not being identified. The Report notes that while the Trust concerned in this case, Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, have amended their own policy, it is not clear that the external agency that carries out these scans have done so. This report was also sent to the Care Quality Commission. Follow the link below to read the coroner’s report regarding Mary’s death in full.

    Research shows that patient complaints are significantly associated with physicians' risk management activity and lawsuits. Research also demonstrates that a small subset of physicians and surgeons in various areas of practice are associated with disproportionate shares of patient complaints. Coded and aggregated patient complaint data therefore offer a metric for identifying and promoting behavior change. Analysis of the distribution of patient complaints associated with 41 paediatric cardiac surgeons is presented as a means for helping leaders show one surgeon how her/his risk status c
