Self-management in chronic lung disease: what is missing?

Self-management is often effective in chronic respiratory disease and can improve symptoms and reduce healthcare burden. Yet patients rarely feature in the design or implementation of interventions; are patients as active partners the missing ingredient?

Features of self-management interventions for people with COPD associated with improved health-related quality of life and reduced emergency department visits: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Self-management interventions can be effective at improving health-related quality of life and reducing emergency department visits, with those targeting mental health being significantly more effective than those targeting symptom management alone.

Virtual consultations for patients with obstructive sleep apnoea: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Sulaiman S AlsaifJulia L KellyStuart Little , Hilary Pinnock , Mary J Morrell , Michael I Polkey , Phyllis Murphie

 

 The findings of this review suggest that virtual care delivered by telephone or video consultations is as effective as in-person consultations for improving subjective sleepiness in patients with OSAHS treated with CPAP. This clinical management strategy may also improve CPAP adherence without increasing the costs, supporting its potential as a follow-up management strategy, where patients prefer this approach.

Remote consulting with telemonitoring of continuous positive airway pressure usage data for the routine review of people with obstructive sleep apnoea hypopnoea syndrome: A systematic review

Phyllis Murphie, Stuart Little, Brian McKinstry, and Hilary Pinnock

The evidence for teleconsultation/telemonitoring in continuous positive airway pressure users is limited; however, no safety concerns have been raised. Adequately powered, well-designed trials are needed to establish whether real-time telemonitoring and remote teleconsultation is a clinically and cost effective option for people using continuous positive airway pressure therapy.

Defining the Core Components of a Clinical Review of People Using Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Therapy to Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea: An International e-Delphi Study

Phyllis Murphie, RGN, MScStuart Little, MD

Robin Paton, BNBrian McKinstry, MD, PhD

Hilary Pinnock, MD, PhD

We mapped 17 prioritized components to a suggested template that may support clinical reviews. Reviews should be flexible, frequently in the early stages of commencing CPAP, shifting to “on-demand” and/or remote follow-up for maintenance. Our findings may inform future guideline recommendations for reviewing CPAP users.

Telemedicine and virtual respiratory care in the era of COVID-19

Hilary Pinnock, Phyllis Murphie, Ioannis Vogiatzis, Vitalii Poberezhets

 Although telehealth has the potential to contribute to universal health coverage by providing cost-effective accessible care, there is a risk of increasing social health inequalities if the “digital divide” excludes those most in need of care. As we emerge from the pandemic, the balance of remote versus face-to-face consulting, and the specific role of digital health in different clinical and healthcare contexts will evolve. What is clear is that telemedicine in one form or another will be part of the “new norm”.
