and injuries. But the majority of 999 calls are not traffic accidents and heart attacks. More typical- ly, calls involve people with complex and ongoing health problems experiencing a crisis. This could be an elderly person with heart failure and diabetes having had a fall, someone with lung disease experiencing breathlessness or a person at risk of suicide ringing in distress. Patient needs have become more complex, there is an ageing population and the number of 999 calls has risen. At the same time (...) arrangements. It is sometimes difficult to know which option is best. And we need to understand what encourages people to choose one service over another. The question of where patients go is addressed in part of an NIHR review looking at published research on drivers for increased demand for emergency care (Turner 2015, NIHR published study one). The reasons were complex and difficult to synthesise from the 38 relevant papers, but included issues such as access to, and confidence in, primary care

Partial seizures used to be subdivided in Type IA simple partial seizures (consciousness not impaired), Type IB complex partial seizures (with impairment of consciousness) and Type IC partial seizures evolving to secondarily generalised seizures (ILAE 1981). However, such classification for focal seizures was subsequently abandoned by ILAE and later reports (...) recommended instead description of manifestation or degree of disability (Berg et al. Epilepsia, 2010). The lifetime risk of developing epilepsy (defined as a history of epilepsy regardless of the frequency of seizures or use of antiepileptic medication) is between 3% and 5%, with the highest incidence reported in neonates, young children, and the elderly (Banerjee et al, Epilepsy Research, 2009).

Dementia Dementia - NICE CKS Share Dementia: Summary Dementia is a clinical syndrome of deterioration in mental function which interferes with activities of daily living (ADLs). It affects more than one cognitive domain (for example memory, language, orientation, or judgement) and social behaviour (for example, emotional control or motivation).

Mild cognitive impairment is cognitive impairment (...) ) can delay or prevent the onset of dementia. Early diagnosis of dementia is important for treatment of reversible causes and advance planning while a person still has mental capacity. Dementia should be suspected if any of the following are reported by the person or their family/carer: Cognitive impairment leading to memory problems (such as difficulty learning new information), dysphasia and dyspraxia, disorientation to time and place and impairment of executive function (such as difficulty

92. Guidance on the clinical management of depressive and bipolar disorders, specifically focusing on diagnosis and treatment strategies

assessment for (hypo)manic symptoms is essential. Cognitive impairment in mood disorders. The issue of cognitive impairment in mood disorders has been recognised for many years, particularly in the elderly in whom the phenomenon has been described as pseudodementia. However, while it has been clear for some time now that episodes of mood disturbance are associated with significant cognitive impairment, two issues are becoming increasingly clear. Firstly, it is clear that in recurrent mood disorders some (...) degree of cognitive impairment remains between episodes. This is the case in both unipolar depression (Bora et al., 2013) and bipolar disorder (Baune and Malhi, 2015; Bourne et al., 2013). Secondly, this impairment is clinically significant in terms of overall functioning, once again in both unipolar and bipolar disorders (Malhi et al., 2007; Porter et al., 2015; Withall et al., 2009). Therefore, this is an issue which is receiving increasing attention with research into both pharmacological

Evidence suggests that, over time, episodes may become more frequent with shorter intervals in between. Some people may experience chronic, subsyndromal symptoms, most commonly of depression.

. Its main causes include falls, motor vehicle accidents, assaults, alcohol consumption and sports injuries. Cranial trauma may lead to a temporary or permanent impairment of cognitive, physical, or psychosocial functions. They represent one of the most critical public health problems around the world with an estimated annual incidence rate in Europe of 262 per 100 000 population. 1 Populations more at risk of cranial trauma include children below 4 years of age, young adults (aged below 25 (...) ) and the elderly (aged over 75). 1 There is a distinction between mild (or light), moderate and severe cranial trauma. Such distinction is most often based on the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS): a 3 to 15-point scale used to assess patients’ level of consciousness and neurologic functioning after a head injury (see Table 1). Mild cranial trauma (mCT) often defined as GCS 13-15 is by far, the most frequent, accounting for as many as 71% to 98% of cases and is the subject of interest of this review. 5 Biomarkers
