61. Management of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The principal impact of CTS on patients relates to the sensory disturbance which may disrupt sleep and, during non-sleeping hours, impair strength and the ability to carry out fine manipulation. CTS may also be associated with pain in the wrist and digits. These symptoms may have a substantial effect on an individual’s ability to accomplish activities of daily living and to perform work-related duties.

62. Age and the anaesthetist

. Negotiations on a new English consultant contract are advanced, but a final offer has yet to be made. Pension changes have already been introduced, with the ageing population as one of the major drivers. More people living longer with more comorbidities will undoubtedly put more strain on the affordability of healthcare and healthcare workers are not immune to these pressures. The implications for anaesthetists of these demographic changes are not just theoretical. We will all face clinical, personal (...) .

if patient presents with depression, falls, cognitive impairment, perceptual difficulties, or urinary incontinence. Use sulfonylureas (especially glyburide) with caution as the risk of hypoglycemia increases with age. Generally, initial doses can be half of those for younger people and increased more slowly. Monitor postural blood pressure. Consider less strict glycemic targets (7.1 - 8.5% A1C) if the individual has limited life expectancy, high functional dependency, extensive disease or multiple co (...) -morbidities etc. Consider a cognitive assessment before initiating insulin. See the - Cognitive Impairment: Recognition, Diagnosis and Management in Primary Care for assessment tests. Pregnancy Contraception and pre-pregnancy planning in all patients with diabetes is encouraged. Identify patients with previous gestational diabetes. These patients can develop type 2 diabetes and special attention prior to next pregnancy and in later life, is necessary. See the CDA guide on women of child-bearing age

, it is not the focus of this guideline as the literature review on which it is based excluded literature that solely focused on physical suffering. The psychosocial and spiritual aspects of suffering are the focus of this guideline.

Depression is considered to be an illness char- acterised by pervasively lowered mood, impaired capacity (...) has not been satisfying. 58 There is a risk that demoralisation as a clinical problem is overlooked because the symptoms may be considered normal for someone in such a situation.
