ABSTRACT

Geriatric patients are not just older adult patients. Aging brings about unique physiologic, psychological, and sociologic changes within individuals. Recognition of these unique characteristics and measuring for their impact; instituting mitigating strategies; using age-specific anesthetic measures; and performing a systematic, algorithmic care model in the postoperative period overseen by a multidisciplinary team brings about enhanced outcomes and improved quality of care for this expanding group of patients.
