Breathlessness IMPRESS Tips for clinicians 2014-01-09

This fully referenced paper summarises the Breathlessness IMPRESS Tips (BITs) for all clinicians who assess and care for adults with long term breathlessness. It also provides accompanying notes to the IMPRESS breathlessness interactive algorithm (Dec 2013). It can also be used by commissioners to work with local clinicians and patients to discuss how to integrate assessment and care for the many local people who are likely to have more than one condition causing their breathlessness such as COPD, heart failure, asthma, anxiety, obesity and anaemia. The appendices offer examples of easy-to-use validated assessment tools. It was produced by a cross-specialty and cross-profession IMPRESS working party.
