[Tremendous Increase of Home Care in Ventilated and Tracheostomized Patients - Reasons, Consequences, Solutions].

Authors:
Dieter Köhler

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2019 Feb 13;144(4):282-285. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

Since 2005, invasive long-term ventilation in Germany has increased significantly from around 1000 to 20 000 patients in Germany. Due to complex home care, the health care system incurs additional costs of around 4 billion euros per year. In addition, in the last 2 - 3 years more tracheostomized patients have been discharged home without ventilation (usually after stroke), and they receive the same complex home care. Read More

[Gaps in Vaccine Coverage and Adverse Effects of Vaccines - An Overview].

Authors:
Christian Bogdan

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2019 Feb 13;144(4):244-253. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

The success of vaccination programs is jeopardized by gaps in vaccine coverage of the target population. These are frequently due to a lack of awareness, but also result from misconceptions of adverse effects of vaccines. Subject of this article are the current vaccination rates of children, adolescents and adults as well as of medical personnel in Germany, the reporting and surveillance system for adverse effects of vaccines, the magnitude of registered permanent vaccine-induced damages and the possible immunological mechanisms underlying vaccine-triggered autoimmune diseases.

Authors:
Thomas Mertens

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2019 Feb 13;144(4):239-243. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

The epidemiological effect of vaccination is that it primarily reduces the incidence and prevalence of infectious agents and diseases, providing ideal conditions (also from an economic point of view) for prevention. Goal of vaccination is first the individual protection. Other goals may be "herd immunity", regional repression and global extinction. Read More

[Management of adverse events in immune oncology - Practical aspects of immune-related adverse events during immune oncological treatment].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

The immune oncological treatment approach uses immune checkpoint inhibitors to prevent tumor cells from shutting down the immune system, and thus from escaping immune response. Following the clinical success of immune checkpoint inhibitors, the number of approved immune oncological therapies continues to increase. Response rates and overall survival with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 and CTLA-4 blockade could be further improved by combining both treatment approaches. Read More

The distinction between hemorrhagic and ischaemic strokes, as well as the identification of patients requiring immediate recanalization therapy, cannot be made by clinical examination but requires CT imaging. In most patients with an ischemic stroke, large parts of the affected brain area are functionless throughout the first hours, but not yet irreversibly damaged (penumbra tissue). Read More

[Comorbidities in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2019 Jan 2;144(1):28-33. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are frequently afflicted by comorbidities. In terms of quality of life, health status and prognosis, comorbid conditions negatively impact the lives of the sufferers. The link between these diseases is complex and comprises manifold considerations: it may be mediated by common risk factors, notably smoking, or by sequelae of COPD, like physical inactivity.

[The stepwise approach of COPD therapy].

Dtsch Med Wochenschr 2019 Jan 2;144(1):15-20. Epub 2019 Jan 2.

The goal of pharmacologic therapy of stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is to reduce symptoms, improve exercise intolerance and health-related quality of life, and to reduce exacerbations. Inhaled long-acting β2-agonists (LABAs) and long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMAs) are equally effective for the symptomatic management of COPD. However, LAMAs are more effective than LABAs in the reduction of exacerbations. Read More
