The heart failure multidisciplinary team: reconnecting in the real world

One of the most difficult challenges presented to healthcare professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic has been maintaining standards of care in non-COVID related chronic illness. Many members of our heart failure multidisciplinary (MDT) teams were redeployed and, while many have returned to their original positions, the impact of COVID-19 will be felt for years. It was, therefore, particularly poignant that in its 25th year, the British Society of Heart Failure (BSH) hosted a two-day immersive programme focusing on the heart failure MDT. Held at the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in Glasgow, on 12th May 2022, the meeting gave heart failure enthusiasts the opportunity to ‘reconnect in the real world’. Dr Tiffany Kemp reports on the highlights of the meeting....

Correspondence – Obstructive sleep apnoea and atrial fibrillation: a key omission in guidelines

Obstructive sleep apnoea and atrial fibrillation: a key omission in guidelines Dear Sirs, The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines for atrial fibrillation (AF) and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) lack recommendations for the subset of patients with both conditions. There is growing evidence of a bidirectional association between AF and OSA, which we believe is not highlighted in current NICE guidelines. The ORBIT-AF (Outcomes Registry for Better Informed Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation) cohort study highlighted that about one in five patients with AF also had OSA.1 For this group of patients, screening, diagnosis and treatment are crucial....
