    A recent report published by the BMJ found that many doctors have difficulty in DNACPR discussions. Chaired by Davina Hehir Director of Policy & Legal Strategy Compassion in Dying, conference will focus on the important issue of effective person centred practice in CPR decisions and communication. By attending you will have the opportunity to hear from Rosie Benneyworth Chief Inspector of Primary Medical Services and Integrated Care Care Quality Commission who will discuss what we've learnt from the pandemic, including: the rapid review of how cardiopulmonary resuscitation decisions

    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.

    Cardiovascular disease (CVD) has become a significant long-term focus for the NHS. Given that CVD is largely preventable it is the single biggest area where the NHS can save lives over the next decade. By embracing digital technology, we can continue to close the gap in identifying people who are living undetected with high-risk conditions, such as Atrial Fibrillation. Chaired by Helen Williams - National Specialty Adviser for CVD Prevention at NHS England & Improvement, this webinar will highlight new approaches that show how the adoption of innovative ECG technology in both Primary

    Evidence for this coroner's report raised systemic concerns about awareness of aortic dissection in emergency departments and about whether current guidance and risk scoring tools require review and revision to address the widespread misdiagnosis of thoracic aortic dissection. In 2020, The Healthcare Safety Investigation Branch published an investigation into delayed recognition of acute aortic dissection, which also made safety recommendations.

    Patients with life-threatening coronary heart disease will be treated five times faster thanks to 3D scans being introduced on the NHS that allow for a diagnosis in just 20 minutes. The revolutionary technology can turn a regular CT scan of the heart into a 3D image, allowing doctors to diagnose them rapidly, NHS England said. It added that about 100,000 people will be eligible to use the HeartFlow technology over the next three years. Patients – who would previously have had to undergo an invasive and time-consuming angiogram in hospital – will now be seen, diagnosed and treate

    For the first time, a new linked health data resource covering 54.4 million people – over 96% of the English population – is now available for researchers from across the UK to collaborate in NHS Digital’s secure research environment. This resource will enable vital research to take place into COVID-19 and cardiovascular disease, with the aim of improving treatments and care for patients. This work has been led by the CVD-COVID-UK consortium in partnership with NHS Digital. The new resource links health data from GP records, hospital data, death records, COVID-19 laboratory test data and

    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

    MedStar Health launched a new tool that automatically calculates a patient's risk of having a heart attack or stroke within 10 years. The tool enables doctors to more easily show patients their personal risk for heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases over time using easy-to-read graphics. "Seeing their risk on a visual display is more powerful than me telling them their risk,” said Ankit Shah, Director, Sports and Performance Cardiology for the MedStar Heart & Vascular Institute at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore.

    This article, published by the European Heart Journal, questions whether we have a sufficient fund of knowledge to close the persistent gender gap in IHD and vanquish the Yentl syndrome to history. While increasing knowledge exists regarding pathophysiological mechanistic pathways for ‘female-pattern IHD’, translational studies aimed at developing practical diagnosis and therapeutics with both traditional and novel treatments are needed. Further closure of knowledge gaps related to the paradox and the pathophysiology of IHD in women is one of our highest priorities to improve the health of the
