Book Description :

With people aged 65 years and older currently making up the fastest growing age group throughout the world, the demographic revolution of an aging society will inevitably lead to increased pressure to develop a rationalistic and age-tailored process of diagnosis and treatment among the elderly. As aging people often suffer from several chronic diseases and are being treated with multiple medications concurrently, unwanted drug interactions occur more frequently. Whereas recent approaches have recommended to remove particular drugs from the medication regimen to avoid adverse effects, Drug Therapy for the Elderly underlines both indispensable and dispensable elements of drug treatment in order to provide an overall assessment of drugs suitable for the aged. In view of the multimorbidity and polypharmacy situations experienced by elderly patients, this book takes into account the special needs and requirements shown by this group, thus serving as a timely reference for physicians who treat the elderly.

Book Description :

Comprising a single repository of knowledge and scientific evidence in the field, this book provides strategies to mitigate fall risk by providing information on the complex interactions between aging processes, co-morbid conditions and prescribed medications in older patients. Geriatric health is becoming a more prominent issue as the population ages, and balancing the beneficial effects of medication against the potential and real side-effects in these patients involves a deliberate and thoughtful task: physiologic aging, the accumulation of co-morbidities, and the use of drugs to manage various conditions and symptoms generates a unique set of problems for each patient. Falls are a dreaded event in older people. The event can affect a person in a physical, and psychological manner, resulting in soft tissue and bony injury, fear of falling, and depression. The identification of and reduction in fall risks in older people is a worldwide concern, and reducing the incidence of falls is a ubiquitous quality measure of health care delivery. Heterogeneity amongst older people precludes a single solution. However, physicians and others involved in the care of geriatric patients will benefit from the presented insights into how medication use can be modified to limit its impact as a contributing factor.

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.

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 :

In the 7 years since the first edition of Clinical Manual of Geriatric Psychopharmacology was published, dozens of new drugs have been released, and older medications have been marketed in different formulations. In addition, research on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and mechanism of action, potential interactions, and other critical topics has proceeded apace, rendering much of the information in existing guides obsolete. This new volume is both comprehensive and completely up to date, offering information unavailable elsewhere. New drugs covered include asenapine, paliperidone, iloperidone, lurasidone, desvenlafaxine, vilazodone, long-acting trazodone, milnacipran, armodafinil, extended-release valproate, rotigotine transdermal, tetrabenazine, dextromethorphan, long-acting gabapentin, and transdermal buprenorphine. Each chapter has a standardized format, with topics including pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and mechanism of action, drug interactions, clinical use (which addresses choice of drug, alternative formulations/routes, pre-treatment evaluation, dose and dose titration, PRN use, monitoring treatment, drug levels, managing treatment resistance, switching drugs, duration of treatment, discontinuation, and overdose), adverse effects, and treatment of selected syndromes and disorders. Dozens of tables, boxes, and figures organize and present complex material, such as practice guidelines, in a straightforward manner that is easy to understand and apply, and the concise, bulleted text facilitates reading and comprehension in the clinical setting. "Specific Drug Summaries" -- one-page summaries of prescribing information for individual drugs -- provide fast access to critical information in a simple format. Designed for residents, fellows, and all clinicians in psychiatry and medicine who diagnose and treat psychiatric and neuropsychiatric conditions affecting geriatric patients, this clinical reference can be used across all treatment settings (inpatient, outpatient, day hospital, consultation, and nursing home). Meticulously referenced and grounded in the latest research, Clinical Manual of Geriatric Psychopharmacology, Second Edition, is the definitive guide to psychotropic use in elderly patients. Clinicians can rely confidently on its up-to-date coverage and authoritative counsel.

Book Description :

Medication costs and common drug-related problems, such as misapplication of therapy, medication misuse, and adverse effects, can often be avoided or reduced. Geriatric Drug Therapy Interventions will help you get better outcomes with your patients as it points out pitfalls to avoid and provides you with logical principles for administering drug therapy. Offering guidelines, advice, and gentle reminders, this book shows you the importance of properly documenting patient problems and of considering the entire medical history of your patients. It also helps you perform fall and psychoactive drug risk assessments and address under-recognized and undertreated problems such as malnutrition, depression, sensory deficits, anemia, osteoporosis, and pressure ulcers. As Geriatric Drug Therapy Interventions clarifies, increased consultant pharmacist involvement in comprehensive pharmaceutical services results in the reduction of drug-related problems and medication-associated costs with long-term care patients. Using this book's helpful and substantive interventions, you can improve clinical, economic, and humanistic outcomes in your practice. For this purpose, Geriatric Drug Therapy Interventions discusses: a study designed to teach pharmacy students to identify, document, solve, and prevent medication-related problems providing patient-focused care and assuming responsibility for patient outcomes reimbursing pharmacists for performing cognitive service and cost-savings activities how the prevalence of drug-related problems that influence the need for hospital and nursing home admissions increases with age reasons for patient noncompliance NSAID-associated gastritis, gastrointestinal bleeding, drug-induced delirium, incontinence, and constipation why the advent of managed care does not bode well for the overall health outcomes of the elderly Pharmacists, physicians, and other health care providers can't control all aspects of drug use, but there are many practical steps you can take to help your patients use their prescriptions appropriately. Geriatric Drug Therapy Interventions will help you monitor the efficacy of drug therapy, guide patients who are exasperated with being poked, prodded, and barraged with medications, and work together to develop therapy patterns and schedules that are effective and comfortable.

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 .

Book Description :

Ageing causes a decrease in cognitive and physical abilities, thus making the elderly more sensitive and vulnerable. Besides, the elderly' living conidtions are greatly affected by various diseases and other health-related problems.As is known, a large number of medicines are used to treat the health-related problems in elderly. Multiple drug use can be named as polypharmacy, though many definitions for "polypharmacy" are available in the literature. Many studies are available to explain the situation of the polypharmacy. Furthermore, there are many studies that confirm the prevalence of polypharmacy in several countries such as Brazil, the Netherlands, Sweden and Singapore. Health professionals involve in different stages of the health care services from the prescription until the usage of the drugs. Especially, pharmacists have significant role in informing the patients about rational use of drugs. It is known that the metabolism in geriatric patients changes with ageing. Therefore, medications, particularly polypharmacy, can cause serious side effect in geriatric patients. However, effective communication between the pharmacists and the patient and reasonable intervention by the pharmacist could prevent the negative effects caused by medications. In addition, an ethical perspective is crucial for considering geriatric patients' benefit.

Book Description :

Surgical and anesthetic techniques have evolved to allow a growing number of older adults to undergo surgery, and current estimates are that 50% of Americans over the age of 65 years old will have an operation. However, as the knowledge regarding perioperative care of the elderly surgical patient grows, so do the questions. In this edition, each chapter includes a section entitled “Gaps in Our Knowledge,” meant to highlight areas in which research is needed, as well as hopefully inspire readers to begin solving some of these questions themselves. Building upon the strong foundation of the first two editions, Geriatric Anesthesiology, 3rd edition also assembles the most up-to-date information in geriatric anesthesia and provides anesthesiologists with important new developments.Topics covered include several new chapters that reflect the evolution of multidisciplinary geriatric care throughout the perioperative continuum, as well as the growing body of literature related to prehabilitation. In addition, discussion of the surgeon’s perspective and geriatrician’s perspective on surgery in the geriatric population is covered, as well as the systematic physiologic changes associated with aging and the pharmacologic considerations for the geriatric patient undergoing procedures. Finally, the last section discusses postoperative care specific to the geriatric population, including acute pain management, ICU management, recent evidence and up-to-date practice regarding delirium and postoperative cognitive dysfunction, and palliative care.
