Alberta's new tobacco reduction strategy, Creating Tobacco-free Futures: Alberta's Strategy to Prevent and Reduce Tobacco Use, 2012-2022, builds on the momentum of the last ten years and sets out a framework for tackling the challenges still in front of us. It's a commitment to taking steps to help people quit using tobacco, reducing harmful second-hand smoke exposure and making tobacco products less enticing for youth. This strategy is about practical and effective initiatives. Some of them are directions to look at in the future. Others will be implemented in the short term.

Renal denervation for treatment-resistant hypertension( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a leading cause of stroke, cardiovascular and kidney disease. In most individuals with hypertension blood pressure can be managed through lifestyle changes and with drug therapies. However, a sub-group of those with hypertension have treatment-resistant hypertension. Resistant hypertension is elevated, above target blood pressure (140/90 mmHg, 130/80 mmHg in patients with diabetes, and 150/90 mmHg for patients over 80 years of age) that persists despite lifestyle and diet modifications and optimal doses of at least three concurrent antihypertensive agents of different categories, including a diuretic. Renal denervation is a catheter-based procedure that ablates afferent and efferent nerves in the renal arteries to decrease sympathetic nervous system activity and reduce blood pressure. The review of the safety and efficacy/effectiveness of RDN included 27 studies. Based on these studies, RDN using the Symplicity system appeared to be safe and well tolerated. The cost-effectiveness (specifically, cost-utility) of RDN was addressed in two published economic analyses and four conference abstracts, all originating from two industry-supported economic models. Both models were designed to assess the lifetime costs and consequences of treatment with RDN in a hypothetical patient population with an average age of approximately 60 years

Level I and level III sleep studies for the diagnosis of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) in adults : final report( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) includes various conditions caused by problems with respiration during sleep. The most common type of SDB, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects many Albertans. The number of Albertans with SDB is increasing - mainly due to population aging, rising rates of obesity, and growing numbers of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Improved public and physician awareness of the health risks associated with sleep disorders is also contributing to the growing demand for sleep studies. Level I sleep studies, or polysomnography, involve overnight testing in a sleep laboratory with a trained health care professional in attendance. Polysomnography is the reference standard for the diagnosis of SDB because it captures many different types of physiological data and can distinguish both OSA and other sleep disorders. Unfortunately, level I polysomnography is an imperfect gold standard and an expensive test to perform. Level III sleep studies, using portable devices intended for patients to use at-home may provide an alternative diagnostic tool for some patients with SDB. These devices are less expensive than level I inlab polysomnography, and are widely available. However, most of the studies of level III devices have included only patients with simple OSA (i.e., without other major comorbidities). It is not clear whether level III sleep studies are appropriate for patients with other types of SDB, or in patients with other serious health conditions. To assess the safety and effectiveness of SDB diagnosis, and to delineate which sub-populations of patients might benefit from level III at-home sleep studies versus level I in-lab sleep studies, two reviews were prepared - one of the published evidence on level III studies and another on level I studies. An additional review was prepared for the economic evaluation."--Executive summary
