Postural Tachycardia Syndrome - Surprisingly Common, Easily Missed

First Broadcast:  15th November 2016

Presented by:  Dr Lesley Kavi MBChB DRCOG DFSRH

Dr Lesley Kavi, GP in the West Midlands, and lecturer at Birmingham City University presents on Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (PoTS). Postural tachycardia syndrome was 1st recognised, named and defined in 1993, although descriptions of this condition have been around for centuries. A syndrome that most commonly affects younger women, PoTS causes significant medical and social morbidity. Possibly due to lack of awareness and non-specific symptoms, PoTS is often misdiagnosed as anxiety, panic disorder, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome, and patients often wait many years before receiving the correct diagnosis and effective treatment.

Sepsis in Adults

First Broadcast: 2nd March 2017

Presented by: Dr Ron Daniels BEM

Dr Ron Daniels, Chief Executive of UK Sepsis Trust presents a webinar on Sepsis in Adults - latest news for Primary Care. Sepsis is responsible for at least 44,000 deaths annually in the UK, and accounts for 30-50% of episodes of inpatient deterioration. Globally, it accounts for an estimated 6-8 million deaths of whom many are in neonates and infants. Despite this huge burden, a single GP will see on average only one or two cases a year- this session is about national progress toward finding one needle in a haystack, and safety netting so others don't get missed.
