NICE Guidance - August 2010

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence has published new guidance for the month of August 2010. This month there are three clinical guidelines that impact upon primary care.

The Chronic Heart Failure guideline (QRG) is an update to the 2003 guideline. It covers the care and treatment of people with chronic heart failure and includes updates on diagnosis, pharmacological treatment, monitoring and rehabilitation.

The Hypertension in Pregnancy guideline (QRG) covers the care and treatment of women who have or are at risk of developing hypertension in pregnancy. It contains pre-conceptual advice and advice on the diagnosis and management during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period.

The Transient Loss of Consciousness in Adults guideline (QRG) covers the assessment, diagnosis and specialist referral of adults and young people (aged 16 and older) who have experienced transient loss of consciousness.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of these guidelines. They will be a useful resource for clinicians who see patients with heart failure, women of child-bearing age and in cases of transient loss of consciousness.
