Public sector organisations reduce emissions from their vehicle fleets to address air pollution. only change the antibiotic according to susceptibility results if bacteria are resistant and symptoms are not already improving (using a narrow-spectrum antibiotic wherever possible). 3. Reducing emissions from public sector vehicle fleets will help to reduce road-traffic-related air pollution. b) Evidence that local authorities identify in the Local Plan, local transport plan and other key strategies how they will encourage and enable active travel. [Adapted from, Acute acidotic hypercapnic respiratory failure results from an inability of the respiratory system to provide sufficient alveolar ventilation to maintain a normal arterial PCO2 and blood pH level.

PCRS and other organisations advised that this omission would render the guideline out of date on 1. Controlled oxygen therapy must therefore be administered by a delivery device and at a flow rate that helps the oxygen saturation to be maintained between 88% and 92%. This classification has been widely used to determine the severity of exacerbation in research studies, with more symptoms indicating a more severe exacerbation. Avoiding or reducing strenuous activity outside, especially in highly polluted locations such as busy streets, and particularly if experiencing symptoms such as sore eyes, a cough or sore throat. It can also help to maintain people’s health and wellbeing during and after construction. There are 1.3 million people in the UK with a diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the condition is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality.1 COPD is also a common cause of hospital admission. Proportion of people with an exacerbation of COPD and persistent acidotic hypercapnic ventilatory failure that is not improving after 1 hour of optimal medical treatment who have non-invasive ventilation. All rights reserved. Pulmonary rehabilitation programmes improve a person’s exercise capacity, quality of life, symptoms and levels of anxiety and depression. Some people with COPD may not be well enough to attend a pulmonary rehabilitation programme within 4 weeks of an acute exacerbation, may not have attended hospital after an acute exacerbation of COPD or may not have been admitted to hospital after their exacerbation of COPD. Hill NS. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) groups have higher smoking prevalence rates than the general population, and as such, services should be accessible and commissioned to address this need.

The 2010 NICE guidelines [ 5] concluded that, in the absence of significant contraindications, oral corticosteroids should be used in conjunction with other therapies in all patients admitted to hospital with an exacerbation of COPD and considered in patients in the community who have an exacerbation with a significant increase in breathlessness that interferes with daily activities. Nothing in this interactive flowchart should be interpreted in a way that would be inconsistent with compliance with those duties. 2 If a person is receiving antibiotic prophylaxis, treatment should be with an antibiotic from a different class. Buildings can affect the way air pollutants are dispersed through street design and the resulting impact on air flow. © NICE 2021.

Denominator – the number of people discharged from hospital after an acute exacerbation of COPD. [Adapted from, Non-invasive ventilation is a method of providing ventilatory support that does not require an endotracheal tube. It is therefore important that practitioners are aware of and make use of the opportunities to refer people who smoke to an evidence-based smoking cessation service. NICE has published a Technology Appraisal Guidance (TAG) recommending roflumilast for use within NHS England as an add-on option to treat adults with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who continue to experience exacerbations despite triple inhaled therapy. Dr Karen Sennett highlights key learning points for primary care from the updated NICE guideline on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Welcome to Guidelines in Practice. a) Evidence that public sector organisations identify how they will reduce emissions from their vehicle fleets to address air pollution. People receiving emergency oxygen for an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) have their oxygen saturation levels maintained between 88% and 92%. Local authorities should ensure that strategic plans identify areas where air pollution is highest and, in particular, locations where people who are vulnerable to air pollution may be exposed to high levels of air pollution, such as schools, nurseries, hospitals and care homes, so that targeted approaches can be put in place. People who smoke who have set a quit date with an evidence-based smoking cessation service are assessed for carbon monoxide levels 4 weeks after the quit date. This can be individual or group behavioural support. 3 exposure to fumes, such as biomass fuels. Bronchodilator therapy is usually delivered using a hand-held inhaler device. Conventionally, a pH <7.35 and a PCO2 >6.5 kPa, persisting after initial medical therapy, define acute respiratory acidosis and have been used as threshold values for considering the use of non-invasive ventilation. More than 3 million people died of COPD in 2012 accounting for 6% of all deaths globally. A diagnosis of COPD is confirmed by post-bronchodilator spirometry. NICE guidance recommends that young people aged 12–17 who smoke should be offered information, advice and support on how to stop smoking and be encouraged to use evidence-based smoking cessation services. Starting a pulmonary rehabilitation programme within 4 weeks of hospital discharge after an acute exacerbation reduces the short-term risk of hospital readmission, and improves the quality of life and the short-term exercise capacity of people with COPD. A placeholder statement indicates the need for evidence-based guidance to be developed in this area. Denominator – the number of people referred to an evidence-based smoking cessation service.
