    Dr Donna Prosser, Chief Clinical Officer at the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, is joined by a group of experts, including pharmacists, anesthesiologists, respiratory therapists, family members, and nursing leaders, to explore the patient safety priorities of sedation, opioid therapy and respiratory depression. The group will discuss frequently encountered safety issues, explore organisational processes to reduce sedation safety events, and assess the role patients and family members can play in reducing harm.

    COVID-19 could be causing lung abnormalities still detectable more than three months after patients are infected, researchers suggest. A study of 10 patients at Oxford University used a novel scanning technique to identify damage not picked up by conventional scans. It uses a gas called xenon during MRI scans to create images of lung damage. Lung experts said a test that could spot long-term damage would make a huge difference to Covid patients. The xenon technique sees patients inhale the gas during a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. Prof Fergus Gleeson, who is leading t

    Inpatient mortality among people receiving non-invasive ventilation (NIV) has decreased for the first time since 2010, falling from 34% in 2013 to 26% in 2019, figures released by the British Thoracic Society show. The annual National Adult Non-Invasive Ventilation audit, which began in 2010, reported “substantial improvements in processes of care and patient outcomes” in 2019 when compared with previous years. “Some improvement in overall mortality may be attributed to improved patient selection,” it said. “Mortality outcomes were lower for each diagnostic category, and most notably

    Some key findings from the audit: Inpatient mortality was 26%. It has reduced from 34% in 2013 and represents the first time that mortality has improved since the first BTS audit in 2010. Compared to the last audit, an increased proportion of patients treated with acute non-invasive ventilation (NIV) had COPD, the indication with the strongest evidence. We saw a decreased proportion of patients who were treated with NIV despite no clearly documented indication. This suggests improved patient selection in line with the evidence base for NIV. 50% of patients treated with NIV st

    The lungs and hearts of patients damaged by the coronavirus improve over time, a study has shown. Researchers in Austria recruited coronavirus patients who had been admitted to hospital. The patients were scheduled to return for evaluation 6, 12 and 24 weeks after being discharged, in what is said to be the first prospective follow-up of people infected with COVID-19, which will be presented at today's European Respiratory Society International Congress. Clinical examinations, laboratory tests, analysis of the amounts of oxygen and carbon dioxide in arterial blood, and lung function

    Patients with respiratory disease have been overlooked during the COVID-19 pandemic, with the NHS storing up problems for the winter months, a group of experts including the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) has warned. Analysis by the 34-member Taskforce for Lung Health showed that referrals for lung conditions fell by 70% in April, with two-in-five (39%) of CCGs seeing no appointment bookings for respiratory conditions for the whole of May. On average, the group calculated a weekly average of 3,399 lung patients missing out on urgent and routine referrals during the COV
