Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.

Conditions of abnormal THYROID HORMONES release in patients with apparently normal THYROID GLAND during severe systemic illness, physical TRAUMA, and psychiatric disturbances. It can be caused by the loss of endogenous hypothalamic input or by exogenous drug effects. The most common abnormality results in low T3 THYROID HORMONE with progressive decrease in THYROXINE; (T4) and TSH. Elevated T4 with normal T3 may be seen in diseases in which THYROXINE-BINDING GLOBULIN synthesis and release are increased.

Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

Comparison of indirect calorimetry, the Fick method, and prediction equations in estimating the energy requirements of critically ill patients. (1/2488)

BACKGROUND: Accurate measurement of resting energy expenditure (REE) is helpful in determining the energy needs of critically ill patients requiring nutritional support. Currently, the most accurate clinical tool used to measure REE is indirect calorimetry, which is expensive, requires trained personnel, and has significant error at higher inspired oxygen concentrations. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare REE measured by indirect calorimetry with REE calculated by using the Fick method and prediction equations by Harris-Benedict, Ireton-Jones, Fusco, and Frankenfield. DESIGN: REEs of 36 patients [12 men and 24 women, mean age 58+/-22 y and mean Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II score 22+/-8] in a hospital intensive care unit and receiving mechanical ventilation and total parenteral nutrition (TPN) were measured for > or = 15 min by using indirect calorimetry and compared with REEs calculated from a mean of 2 sets of hemodynamic measurements taken during the metabolic testing period with an oximetric pulmonary artery catheter. RESULTS: Mean REE by indirect calorimetry was 8381+/-1940 kJ/d and correlated poorly with the other methods tested (r = 0.057-0.154). This correlation did not improve after adjusting for changes in respiratory quotient (r2 = 0.28). CONCLUSIONS: These data do not support previous findings showing a strong correlation between REE determined by the Fick method and other prediction equations and indirect calorimetry. In critically ill patients receiving TPN, indirect calorimetry, if available, remains the most appropriate clinical tool for accurate measurement of REE.  (+info)

Prospective randomised trial of distal arteriovenous fistula as an adjunct to femoro-infrapopliteal PTFE bypass. (2/2488)

OBJECTIVES: To compare graft patency and limb salvage rate following femoro-infrapopliteal bypass using ePTFE grafts with and without the addition of adjuvant arterio-venous fistula. DESIGN: A prospectively randomised controlled trial. MATERIALS: Patients referred to two teaching hospital vascular surgery units in the U.K. for the treatment of critical limb ischaemia. METHODS: Eighty-seven patients (M:F; 2.3:1) undergoing 89 femoro-intrapopliteal bypass operations with ePTFE grafts for critical limb ischaemia were randomly allocated to have AVF included in the operative procedure (n = 48) or to a control group without AVF (n = 41). An interposition vein-cuff was incorporated at the distal anastomosis in all patients. RESULTS: The cumulative rates of primary patency and limb salvage at 1-year after operation for patients with AVF were 55.2% and 54.1% compared to 53.4% and 43.2%, respectively, for the control group. The differences between the AVF and control groups did not reach statistical significance, in terms of either graft patency or limb salvage, at any stage after operation (Log-Rank test). CONCLUSIONS: AVF confers no additional significant clinical advantage over interposition vein cuff in patients having femoro-infrapopliteal bypass with ePTFE grants for critical limb ischaemia.  (+info)

Enteral nutritional supplementation with key nutrients in patients with critical illness and cancer: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled clinical trials. (3/2488)

OBJECTIVE: To conduct a meta-analysis of 11 randomized controlled trials comparing enteral nutritional support supplemented with key nutrients versus standard enteral nutritional support to determine effects on morbidity and mortality rates and hospital stay. BACKGROUND DATA: Recent studies have shown that malnutrition occurs in up to 30% of patients undergoing gastrointestinal surgery, resulting in an increased risk of postoperative complications and death. With the realization that key nutrients can modulate inflammatory, metabolic, and immune processes, enteral nutritional regimens (supplemented with large amounts of key nutrients) have been developed for clinical use. METHODS: Eleven prospective, randomized controlled trials evaluating 1009 patients treated with combinations of key nutrients (Impact, Immun-Aid) were evaluated. Outcome measures examined were the incidences of pneumonia, infectious complications, and death, and length of hospital stay. Meta-analyses were undertaken to obtain the odds ratio and 95% confidence interval for incidences of infectious complications, pneumonia, and death, and the weighted mean difference and 95% confidence interval for length of hospital stay. RESULTS: The provision of nutritional support supplemented with key nutrients to patients with critical illness resulted in a decrease in infectious complications when compared with patients receiving standard nutritional support and a significant reduction in overall hospital stay. Similar results were documented in patients with gastrointestinal cancer. However, there were no differences between patient groups for either pneumonia or death. CONCLUSIONS: This meta-analysis has demonstrated that nutritional support supplemented with key nutrients results in a significant reduction in the risk of developing infectious complications and reduces the overall hospital stay in patients with critical illness and in patients with gastrointestinal cancer. However, there is no effect on death. These data have important implications for the management of such patients.  (+info)

Chronic critical limb ischemia: diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. (4/2488)

Chronic critical limb ischemia is manifested by pain at rest, nonhealing wounds and gangrene. Ischemic rest pain is typically described as a burning pain in the arch or distal foot that occurs while the patient is recumbent but is relieved when the patient returns to a position in which the feet are dependent. Objective hemodynamic parameters that support the diagnosis of critical limb ischemia include an ankle-brachial index of 0.4 or less, an ankle systolic pressure of 50 mm Hg or less, or a toe systolic pressure of 30 mm Hg or less. Intervention may include conservative therapy, revascularization or amputation. Progressive gangrene, rapidly enlarging wounds or continuous ischemic rest pain can signify a threat to the limb and suggest the need for revascularization in patients without prohibitive operative risks. Bypass grafts are usually required because of the multilevel and distal nature of the arterial narrowing in critical limb ischemia. Patients with diabetes are more likely than other patients to have distal disease that is less amenable to bypass grafting. Compared with amputation, revascularization is more cost-effective and is associated with better perioperative morbidity and mortality. Limb preservation should be the goal in most patients with critical limb ischemia.  (+info)

Oedema in the lower limb of patients with chronic critical limb ischaemia (CLI). (5/2488)

OBJECTIVE: approximately 70% of patients with chronic critical limb ischaemia (CLI) show clinical signs of oedema in the distal leg and foot. The primary aim of the present investigation was to quantify this oedema. In addition we investigated whether oedema formation could be due to deep venous thrombosis (DVT). METHODS: fifteen patients with unilateral CLI and oedema were studied, four males and 11 females, with a mean age of 77+/-10.3 years. Water displacement volumetry (WDV) was used to measure limb volume. Colour duplex ultrasound (CDU) and venous occlusion plethysmography (VOP) were applied to exclude functionally significant DVT. Blood chemistry was analysed to screen for some causative factors of generalised oedema formation. RESULTS: the mean volume of the limbs with CLI was 9% greater than the contralateral limbs (1279+/-325 ml vs. 1179+/-298 ml). None of the patients had functionally significant DVT. The mean plasma albumin concentration was reduced at 28.5+/-6.6 g/l. CONCLUSION: a significantly reduced plasma albumin concentration cannot be regarded as a causative factor, since the oedema is unilateral. The aetiology of oedema formation is probably multifactorial, and further investigations are under progress to elucidate relevant pathogenetic factors.  (+info)

Continuous infusion versus intermittent administration of meropenem in critically ill patients. (6/2488)

This prospective crossover study compared the pharmacokinetics of meropenem by continuous infusion and by intermittent administration in critically ill patients. Fifteen patients were randomized to receive meropenem either as a 2 g iv loading dose, followed by a 3 g continuous infusion (CI) over 24 h, or by intermittent administration (IA) of 2 g iv every 8 h (q8h). Each regimen was followed for a period of 2 days, succeeded by crossover to the alternative regimen for the same period. Pharmacokinetic parameters (mean +/- SD) of CI included the following: concentration at steady state (Css) was 11.9+/-5.0 mg/L; area under the curve (AUC) was 117.5+/-12.9 mg/L x h. The maximum and minimum serum concentrations of meropenem (Cmax, Cmin) and total meropenem clearance (CItot) for IA were 110.1+/-6.9 mg/L, 8.5+/-1.0 mg/L and 9.4+/-1.2 L/h, respectively. The AUC during the IA regimen was larger than the AUC during CI (P < 0.001). In both treatment groups, meropenem serum concentrations remained above the MICs for the most common bacterial pathogens. We conclude that CI of meropenem is equivalent to the IA regimen and is therefore suitable for treating critically ill patients. Further studies are necessary to compare the clinical effects of CI and IA in this patient group.  (+info)

Falsely increased immunoassay measurements of total and unbound phenytoin in critically ill uremic patients receiving fosphenytoin. (7/2488)

BACKGROUND: Fosphenytoin, a phosphate ester prodrug of phenytoin, is metabolized to phenytoin in vivo. Phenytoin metabolites accumulate in renal insufficiency and cross-react in some phenytoin immunoassays. Our aim was to determine the accuracy of phenytoin immunoassays in renal patients treated with fosphenytoin. METHODS: We measured phenytoin with HPLC and with the aca, ACS:180, TDx phenytoin II, Vitros, and AxSYM methods. Specimens were collected 2-120 h after fosphenytoin administration from 17 patients with renal insufficiency. RESULTS: The AxSYM, TDx phenytoin II, ACS:180, and Vitros assays displayed falsely increased phenytoin results up to 20 times higher than the HPLC results. The aca Star results for these specimens were comparable to the HPLC results. Although fosphenytoin can cross-react with phenytoin immunoassays, no fosphenytoin was detected by a sensitive HPLC method in any sample that was tested for its presence. CONCLUSION: These results are consistent with the formation of one or more novel metabolites or adducts of fosphenytoin that accumulate in some critically ill patients with renal insufficiency and that display significant cross-reactivity with some, but not all, phenytoin immunoassay methods.  (+info)

Multiple organ failure. How valid is the "two hit" model? (8/2488)

Inflammatory "one hit" and "two hit" models have recently been proposed to account for the development of multiple organ failure (MOF) in trauma and critically ill surgical patients when no source of infection can be found. In the "one hit" model, the initial insult is so massive that a systemic inflammatory response syndrome is triggered and leads rapidly to MOF. In the "two hit" scenario, initially less severely injured patients eventually develop MOF as a result of a reactivation of their inflammatory response caused by an adverse and often minor intercurrent event. At first sight, the theory is attractive because it seems to fit commonly observed clinical patterns. Indeed, injured patients often respond to initial resuscitation but, after an insult of some sort, develop organ dysfunction and die. The "two hit" model is furthermore mirrored at the cellular level. Inflammatory cells are indeed susceptible of being primed by an initial stimulus and reactivated subsequently by a relatively innocuous insult. However, in the absence of clinical and biological corroboration based on cytokine secretion patterns, these models should not be accepted uncritically.  (+info)

If you are planning to provide critical illness cover for your hourly workers, here are the things that you (and your employee) should know:. 1. It pays a lump-sum amount, tax free..

There are three major health problems covered primarily by critical illness insurance. These are:. · Cancer. · Heart Attack. · Stroke. Other conditions that may be covered by a critical illness insurance policy include:. · Heart Transplant. · Coronary Bypass Surgery. · Angioplasty. · Kidney Failure. · Major Organ Transplant. · Paralysis. · Blindness. · Multiple Sclerosis. 3. It does not cover pre-existing critical illness. Most critical illness insurance will not pay for critical illnesses caused by pre-existing medical conditions, or ...
I believe strongly in the benefits of critical illness insurance and the relief it would bring to the insured. However, I also believe that the insurance broker, the insurance company and perhaps we as the life insured play an important part in the understanding of how the critical illness policy work.. I would like to share some pointers to note when deciding to buy critical illness insurance; these are my personal opinion based on my personal experience:. 1. Try to get an insurance advisor who can explain clearly the feature of the critical illness insurance. Make the advisor explain each one of the critical illness stipulated in the policy, what is cover and under what circumstances is the critical illness claimable. For example, a transient stroke which lasts for less than 24hr is not claimable, what is their definition of a heart attack and what are the test required to proof the condition and what constitute total and permanent disability. Do not be afraid to ask the advisor to go through ...
No one likes to think about the possibility of suffering from a serious critical illness, but if it were to happen to you, the consequences would be devastating for the financial security for you and your family. How would your loved ones cope? How would you pay your bills and meet all you business or personal financial obligations if a critical illness happened to you now? You need critical illness coverage. If you couldnt work due to your illness or accident, would you need to make alterations to your home? Would you need to hire home health care assistance? Would a serious critical illness prevent you from being able to pay the bank or mortgage company for your home loan? If so, what would happen to the standard of life that you have worked so hard to achieve? You would lose it, thats why critical illness coverage is required as a safe guard. There is no substitute for Critical Illness Insurance.Just like making a will, thinking about Critical Illness Insurance is something that many people ...
Understanding Critical Illness Insurance. Critical illness insurance is coverage that meets the expenses associated with having a critical illness, such as cancer or some other life-threatening disease. You may find that this insurance is a part of your job benefits. If not, then you will have to purchase your own policy if needed. This type of insurance is meant for people who have the possibility of becoming inflicted with a critical illness. What qualifies as a critical illness depends on your policy. In most cases, covered illnesses include things such as Alzheimers, cancer, deafness, blindness, paralysis, sclerosis, and organ transplants.. How it Works. Critical illness insurance comes into play when the policyholder is stricken with disease. Once the individual is diagnosed with the illness, they become eligible for benefits. Some insurance companies require the policyholder to survive for 7 to 14 days before benefits will be paid. Once this period is met, benefits are paid to the ...
Conditions for Payment - specific criteria that must be met before the benefit is paid. For example, we pay the major organ transplant benefit once an insured goes on the donor list. Benefit Reduction Age and Amount - We reduce benefit by 50 percent at later of age 65 and five years after issue for those 60 years or older at time of issue. Percentages and effective age vary with other companies. In some states, Critical Illness Plus is available. The Critical Illness Plus product does not have a reduction of benefit amount.. Guaranteed Renewable - You can keep our Critical Illness Insurance policy for life.. Premium Guarantee - Your Critical Illness Insurance premium rate is guaranteed for one year. We will only change rates by policy class subject to approval by state departments of insurance. Return of Premium Feature - This feature applies at death only. Upon the insureds death, we will return all Critical Illness Insurance premiums less claims paid. Not available in FL. Riders Offered - We ...

Critical illness insurance is a complex product with exclusions and pay-outs varying greatly from insurer to insurer. Typically all insurers cover illnesses such as cancer, heart attack, stroke, Alzheimers and multiple sclerosis. Our experienced protection adviser will explain and help guide you to the correct level of comprehensive critical illness cover within your budget and required health benefits.. ...
A major illness like a heart attack or an invasive cancer could prevent you from working. It can result in unforeseen bills and leave you buried under out-of-pocket expenses you havent planned for. Critical Illness Insurance fills in the gaps so you can focus on recovery. Critical Illness Insurance is not traditional medical insurance. It pays you, not your doctors and hospitals so you decide how to use benefit dollars.. Critical Illness coverage works in two ways. First, you receive cash benefits when a covered critical illness occurs.

The experiences of nurse in providing psychosocial support to families of critically ill trauma patients in the intensive care unit
Identifying patients with critical illness is paramount in the ED care of patients with infectious disease processes. Highly sensitive prediction tools will allow clinicians to detect all (or nearly all) critically ill patients early in their course to provide time-sensitive interventions such as fluid resuscitation, early antibiotics and timely vasopressor administration.15-18 Highly specific predictive tools allow for more judicious disposition decisions and expenditure of resources, particularly ICU beds. In this multicenter study assessing the utility of qSOFA to predict the need for ICU care, vasopressors or mortality within 72 hours of admission from the ED, we found that qSOFA criteria had slightly better performance than traditional SIRS and sepsis criteria. For ruling out critical illness, qSOFA ≥1 had equivalent sensitivity and negative predictive value to SIRS criteria, with slightly higher specificity and positive predictive value.

The altered adrenal axis and treatment with glucocorticoids during critical illness.. Nat Clin Pract Endocrinol Metab. 2008 Sep;4(9):496-505. Authors: Mesotten D, Vanhorebeek I, Van den Berghe G. Critical illness is generally hallmarked by activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis. The development of very high levels of cortisol has been associated with severe illness and a raised risk of death. Likewise, a response that is inadequate relative to the degree of stress, termed relative adrenal insufficiency (also known as critical-illness-related corticosteroid insufficiency) has been associated with increased mortality. Much controversy exists with regard to the definition and biochemical testing of an adequate adrenal response to critical illness, which hampers diagnosis. High doses of glucocorticoids have been shown to have no effect in this setting and might be harmful. Moderate doses have been advocated, however, for critically ill patients with inflammatory conditions, such as ...

Review question. We reviewed the evidence from randomized controlled trials for the benefits and safety of all prescription medicines used to treat critically ill adult patients with delirium in the intensive care units (ICUs) of hospitals.. Background Delirium is commonly associated with surgery, infection, or critical illness. It is experienced as new-onset, generally short-term inability to think clearly. Patients with delirium shift between periods of clear thinking and periods of agitation and/or great sleepiness and confusion. Lack of sleep, pain, a noisy environment, physical restraint, and the use of sedatives and strong analgesics are some of the contributing factors. Delirium affects both immediate and longer-term health outcomes of critically ill patients as it can increase the length of time a breathing machine is required, time spent in the ICU and in hospital, and the chance of functional weakening and death. The odds of a poor outcome with delirium are increased with frail ...
AIM: Physiological track and trigger scores have an established role in enhancing the detection of critical illness in hospitalized patients. Their potential to identify individuals at risk of clinical deterioration in the pre-hospital environment is unknown. This study compared the predictive accuracy of the Modified Early Warning Score (MEWS) with current clinical practice. METHODS: A retrospective observational cohort study of consecutive adult (≥16 yrs) emergency department attendances to a single centre over a two-month period. The outcome of interest was the occurrence or not of an adverse event within 24h of admission. Hospital pre-alerting was used as a measure of current critical illness detection and its accuracy compared with MEWS scores calculated from pre-hospital observations. RESULTS: 3504 patients were included in the study. 76 (2.5%) suffered an adverse event within 24 h of admission. Paramedics pre-alerted the hospital in 224 cases (7.3%). Clinical judgement demonstrated a
Glutamine, a nonessential amino acid, is preferred fuel for rapidly proliferating cells in human body. Those cells include the enterocytes in small intestine, lymphocytes, macrophages, and fibroblasts. Glutamine also transports nitrogen between tissues and serves as a precursor to glutathione which is a potent antioxidant. A healthy human body contains abundant glutamine, either from diet or from skeletal muscle tissue that synthesizes it.. During critical illness the demand for glutamine is increased. Rapid depletion of glutamine stores in critically ill patients has been described and correlated to increased mortality. Glutamine depletion may be deleterious in critical illness because of adverse effects on the essential functions mentioned above. For example glutamine depletion may cause gut mucosal barrier function to deteriorate, leading to bacterial translocation and enhanced systemic inflammatory response with increased risk for multisystem organ failure. Clinical trials performed in a ...

Have you considered the impact of having to dip into your retirement savings? The cost of using RRSPs to cover expenses of an unexpected illness could result in the need to work longer or retire with less money than planned. Despite this, many Canadians dont have an adequate plan for the unexpected.. In an Ipsos Reid survey*, 52 per cent of respondents indicated they would dip into retirement savings if faced with a major illness.. Critical illness insurance can help keep your retirement saving on track if you are diagnosed with a condition such as a heart attack, stroke or life-threatening cancer.. If you have critical illness insurance and satisfy the survival period, the benefit you receive can help pay those expenses, meaning you are less likely to have to dip into your existing registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) to help cover costs.. Consider this example. John is a 38-year-old male with annual earnings of $90,000. If he were to remain healthy until age 65, he could retire with more ...
Health insurance plans are reimbursement plans which pay the real cost of hospitalization. If there should arise an occurrence of a claim, you need to present your medical records and every single applicable bill. The insurance organization at that point pays the expenses acquired subject to a most extreme of the Sum Insured. Best critical illness insurance, despite what might be expected, is fixed advantage plans. These plans pay the Sum Insured on the off chance that you are determined to have any secured illness. The advantage payout doesnt rely upon the real costs acquired. The cash gotten from a critical illness plan can be utilized to meet any costs whether you need to pay off your liabilities or get better treatment. In any case, the claim gotten under a health plan is exclusively for the medical expenses acquired and cant be utilized for other purposes. ...
There are a number of obstacles that could potentially de-rail a comfortable retirement. These include marriage breakdown, a stock market crash, and being sued. Another huge obstacle would be the diagnosis of a life threatening critical illness affecting you or your spouse.

Optimal delivery of nutritional support during critical illness is central to appropriate intensive care unit management, and yet fundamental gaps in knowledge exist regarding timing, route, dose, and type of nutritional support for critically ill infants and children. Understanding how to optimize nutritional support during pediatric critical illness is important because even brief periods of malnutrition in infancy result in permanent negative effects on long-term neurocognitive development. Optimized nutrition support is a way to improve morbidity for survivors of pediatric critical illness. Parenteral nutrition (PN) supplementation could improve long-term neurocognitive outcome for pediatric critical illness by preventing acute malnutrition, but has unknown effects on intestinal barrier function; a proposed mechanism for late sepsis and infectious complications during critical illness.. While randomized controlled trials (RCT) support early PN in premature infants and late PN in critically ...

Although procalcitonin and presepsin have been identified as potential biomarkers to differentiate between sepsis and other non-infectious causes of systemic inflammation, the diagnostic accuracy of these biomarkers remains controversial. Herein, we performed a comprehensive meta-analysis to assess the overall diagnostic value of procalcitonin and presepsin for the diagnosis of sepsis. Methods: We searched three electronic databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials) for relevant studies. Two authors independently screened articles on the basis of inclusion and exclusion ...

Advances in critical care medicine have led to improved outcomes; as a result, most patients will survive their critical illness episode. However, many survivors do not return to their pre critical illness functional levels. Rather, survivors of critical illness often experience impairments in cognition, mental health, and physical health that endure. Research over the past 2 decades has increased our knowledge and awareness of these morbidities after critical illness. Post-intensive care syndrome (PICS), a term coined in 2012 to raise awareness of these impairments, is common after critical illness. Specifically, 34% of patients who experience shock and/or require invasive mechanical ventilation experience cognitive impairment at 12 months at a level consistent with moderate traumatic brain injury ...
We studied the association between delirium in the ICU and long-term mortality, HRQoL, and problems with cognitive functioning in survivors of critical illness. We found that delirium was not associated with mortality and HRQoL when adjustments were made for confounding. By contrast, subjects who had delirium during their ICU stay experienced more problems with cognitive functioning at follow-up than persons who did not have delirium in the ICU. The latter finding remained statistically significant when we adjusted for confounders, including estimates of severity of illness throughout the course of the ICU stay.. To the best of our knowledge, our study is the first to adjust for severity of illness throughout the course of the ICU stay, in analyzing the association between delirium with long-term mortality and HRQoL. Previous studies on these issues adjusted for severity of illness at baseline only[11-14, 16]. Next to correction for severity of illness, differences with previous studies could be ...
Patients with the acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) represent some of the most complex, highest-acuity, and long-stay ICU patients (see Chap. 38). ARDS affects an estimated 150,000 people per year in the United States and is manifested by acute lung injury and severe hypoxemic respiratory failure.8 ARDS is associated with a variety of insults, including, pneumonia, sepsis, trauma, massive transfusion, and other medical/surgical conditions.9 It is a systemic illness involving inflammatory and coagulopathic disturbances that may induce dysfunction of multiple organ systems, including skeletal muscle and the peripheral and central nervous systems.10,11 Because of the significant potential for morbidity, ARDS patients have been the focus in long-term outcome studies in survivors of critical illness. We are in the early stages of understanding the long-term impact of ARDS on physical ...
The cost of critical illness cover depends largely on the policy you choose. There are a range of levels of cover offered and, in most cases, the higher amount you pay the higher level of comprehensiveness of the policy.. Basic policies are available for just a small amount of pounds per month, but they do not offer as much cover as more comprehensive and, most likely, costly policies. In some cases, there is not a great contrast between basic and comprehensive policies, so it may be worthwhile spending a little more to get better cover.. The premium price will also depend on your personal details, your lifestyle (case in point, if you smoke, you may pay more because smoking increases the risk of several serious illnesses) and how old you are, in addition to what occupation you have and your health. If you are over the age of 50, have a history of illness or you work in a high-risk industry, your premium is likely to be higher than somebody who is younger with no history of illness. Once you ...
