IMPRESS BREATHLESSNESS EPIDEMIOLOGY LITERATURE REVIEW summary tables

here is surprisingly little epidemiological data on the prevalence of breathlessness in the UK. However, from those that exist, we estimate that up to 10% of the general adult population is bothered by long term breathlessness and as many as 30% of older people. This summary of a major literature review by the Department of Management at the London School of Economics and Political Scence, supported by the Health Foundation, and working with the IMPRESS Breathlessness Working Party provides commissioners and clinicians with an overview of the literature and the summary findings. It is useful background to the IMPRESS Breathlessness suite of resources including the interactive algorithm, and Breathlessness IMPRESS Tips (BITs) for clinicians, patients and commissioners. It is accompanied by detailed prevalence modelling for each condition. - See more at: http://www.impressresp.com Impressions 31
