Hi Finally you are here to doenload Cambridge Perioperative Care of the Elderly Patient Latest Edition Ebook PDF The steady rise of older patients represents one of the biggest economic and societal  challenges facing health care, leading to an increased demand for a deeper understand- ing of the impact of aging in he perioperative period. Although some disease states, like  dementia, can be considered a classic “geriatric” condition, others, such as heart disease,  hypertension, degenerative osteoarthritis, cataracts and complex pain syndromes, are  not unique to the elderly, but still contribute significantly to the disease burden of this demographic.

Despite a higher morbidity and mortality risk, elderly patients frequently  need to undergo invasive procedures and surgery, and this can raise questions about what constitutes appropriate perioperative care. For example, which geriatric patient needs preoperative functional and/or frailty assessment, what is a meaningful recovery in the patient with dementia and how does one address the ethics of performing  procedures near the end of life? These questions frequently require interdisciplinary collaboration amongst multiple perioperative providers, including surgeons, anesthesiologists, cardiologists, geriatricians and hospitalists. In this text we have attempted to highlight perioperative areas of vulnerability for the older patient undergoing anesthesia and surgery.

Cambridge Perioperative Care of the Elderly Patient Latest Edition eBook PDF

  • From the patient’s perspective, the surgical event is often the central event during a  hospitalization or illness;
  • however, for most patients surgery and anesthesia represent just  one part of the continuum of perioperative care.
  • It is not surprising then that perioperative medicine is assuming an increasingly important role in surgery and anesthesia, and  interdisciplinary communication and sharing of expertise amongst multiple specialists is needed to optimize outcomes for frail and complex older patients.
  • The elements of perioperative care – from the preoperative preparation, the choice for surgery and informed  consent, the anesthetic options and surgery itself, and the postoperative period –contribute to a successful outcome for the patient.
  • In this book, we attempt to bring  together these perioperative issues by discussing multiple “geriatric” issues, such as evaluations for frailty, the types of dementia and how they may be characterized.
  • How should  we address issues of competence and decision-making? What is the role of palliative care  for an 80-year-old patient needing surgery? What is the impact of noninvasive cardiac  surgery versus traditional surgical approaches?
  • These are a few of the important issues that face clinicians daily as they care for sick older patients – admitted from home or  through the emergency unit. We hope that this book will increase awareness of issues  pertaining to the elderly in the perioperative period and even lead to the generation of more questions and curiosity about the older patient.
