Book Description :

Medication mishaps can and do happen in nursing homes. This highly important new book focuses on the scope of drug-related problems (DRP) of misuse and adverse reaction to medications in the nursing home environment. Experts provide practical methods for detecting DRPs, they explain a systematic approach to preventing DRPs, and they document the magnitude of DRPs in the long term care setting. Each chapter of this timely book deals with a different type of drug-related problem and includes operational definitions, prevalence of the problem, and the actions needed to detect and minimize risk and prevent recurrence. A checklist at the end of each chapter aids readers in assessing specific problems in nursing homes, home health care, day care settings, and other locations in which medications are given to the elderly. Illustrative case examples are used throughout the text. With an emphasis on awareness and change, Drug-Related Problems in Geriatric Nursing Home Patients will be invaluable for pharmacists, physicians, and nurses who work in long term care; health care planners who need to be cognizant of the scope and magnitude of medication mishaps in the nursing home; administrators who are ultimately responsible for such problems. Students and educators will find the information, and especially the checklists, timely and practical.

Book Description :

How can we safely and effectively treat musculoskeletal disorders in this fast-growing population? Musculoskeletal Drug Therapy for Geriatric Patients is an essential reference for pharmacists, physicians, and nurses who plan treatment for elderly patients suffering from post-menopausal osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout or hyperuricemia. The medical cost of these common ailments is staggering: osteoporosis alone causes more than 1.5 million fractures each year with annual costs to the health system of approximately $14 billion. The human cost--in pain, disfigurement, restricted movement, and lost work--is incalculable. Today pioneering research is being done, and new drugs have become available to alleviate patients’suffering. Musculoskeletal Drug Therapy for Geriatric Patients offers detailed discussions of the newest drug treatments and recent findings on older medications. For example, many authorities agree that acetominophen should be frontline therapy of degenerative arthritis in the elderly, yet the most common adverse drug reaction of geriatric patients in long-term care is for NSAID gastropathy. This book suggests safer options, including the newest COX-2 inhibitors and disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs. Musculoskeletal Drug Therapy for Geriatric Patients offers clear strategies for the assessment and treatment of these painful, debilitating disorders in the elderly. Including tables and charts that comprehensively list test results, Musculoskeletal Drug Therapy for Geriatric Patients provides solid advice on the issues of medical management of these common diseases. This valuable book examines specific issues, including: the newest COX-2 inhibitors and how they work the evaluation, diagnosis, and management of osteoporosis osteoarthritis and its drug therapy a scholarly assessment of geriatric rheumatoid arthritis and its treatment. dosage, contraindications, and possible negative effects of various medications determining the need for chronic prophylactic therapy in patients with gout or hyperuricemia Although none of these musculoskeletal diseases can yet be cured, effective drug therapy can keep them in check. Musculoskeletal Drug Therapy for Geriatric Patients will help you give your patients the most powerful new treatments with the fewest side effects, thereby improving their quality of life.

Book Description :

Gerontokinetics: Pharmacokinetics of Drugs in the Elderly is concerned with the complex processes of how the body handles drugs. After dealing with changes in the anatomy and physiology of the human body with increasing age, the pharmacokinetics of drugs in the elderly is discussed. In particular, five processes are discussed: liberation, absorption, distribution, metabolism and elimination. Finally, guidelines are given for the health care practitioner in evaluating pharmacokinetics in geriatric patients as well as the principles behind dosage adjustment in the aged. More than half the book is devoted to a listing of the pharmacokinetic parameters of drugs which have been studied in the elderly. This volume will be of interest to anyone involved in geriatric medicine or in clinical pharmacokinetics.

ABSTRACTDrug related Problems in Type-2 Diabetes patients in geriatric patients of South India: Using PCNE classification tool Background:Drug-related problems (DRPs) lead to substantial morbidity and mortality and are statistically related to the clinical outcomes, healthcare costs, and quality of life of diabetic patients. Several studies have demonstrated that diabetic patients are at the risk for drug -related problems. Patients with Type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are known to be at risk of drug related problems since they often receive multiple medications due to co-morbidities associated with the condition. This study assessed the prevalence of drug related problems and related factors in a geriatric population of diabetic patients using PCNE classification tool in a tertiary hospital of south India.Methods: A prospective analysis of selected geriatric patients of Type 2 diabetic was conducted from January 2016 to January 2017 in the Medicine ward of Rajah Muthiah Medical College and Hospital, Annamalai University. Data was collected and analyzed for demographics, clinical conditions (co-morbidity), types of medications used and medication complications. All collected data were scrutinized with the SPSS version 20 for data management and analyzes in the study. The Chi-square test was used for determination of the significant relationship between types of medications prescribed for geriatric patients and factors associated with the occurrence of DRPs.

Book Description :

Medication review is the starting point for comprehensive rehabilitation of an elderly person in order to support physical or mental functional capacity.An elderly patient appreciates a clear diagnosis and an approach where the doctor both listens and discusses the matter before starting or reducing medication – this will also improve patient compliance. An improved quality of life as the aim of medication is emphasized in elderly patients. Problems encountered include both underuse, which is often associated with underdiagnosis (e.g. memory diseases, heart disease, disease prophylaxis, pain), and inappropriate medication (medication without a clear indication, or a drug for which the risk of adverse events outweighs the clinical benefit). It must be borne in mind that some of the patient’s symptoms may not be due to an illness but are an adverse effect of a medicine. Some medicines may often cause adverse effects in elderly patients (e.g. long-acting benzodiazepines, antipsychotic drugs, anticholinergic drugs, oral antidiabetic drugs and anti-inflammatory analgesics). The possibility of dehydration and undernourishment should be remembered both in patients living at home and those living in a care facility. Sufficient intake of protein from food is of particular importance for drug metabolism. Protein malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies develop easily and insidiously in elderly persons .
