Chronic Conditions: Blood pressure is the single most important risk factor for CV risk. If we lower blood pressure, we can reduce that risk.

Allergic Rhinitis miniseries, Part 1: We have a large burden of allergic rhinitis in Australia, which can significantly affect quality of life.  Allergic disease can affect the lungs, ears, nose and throat, it can affect people’s workplace productivity, absenteeism and asthma control. Patients can sometimes trivialise this disease and there is a high rate of self-treatment, so how can we help our patients to get the right treatment?

Respiratory feature interview. When we ask our patients ‘how are things with your asthma’ and the patient says ‘fine’, that may or may not mean that things are going well. There are some really important directed questions that GP’s can ask patients, asking them about disturbed sleep, restriction of activities, how often they are using their reliever inhaler etc. Patients taking regular treatment may still be experiencing quite a large symptom burden, so listen to this extended interview to learn more…

Australians who are 65 or over may not consider themselves to be older Australians, and may not understand that once they reach 65 the risk of developing pneumococcal disease increases significantly.
