Anesthesia in Geriatric patients

Anesthesia in geriatric patients requires careful consideration due to the physiological changes associated with aging. Elderly patients often have reduced cardiovascular reserves, decreased pulmonary function, and impaired renal and hepatic function. Anesthesiologists must take into account these age-related changes when selecting anesthetic agents and adjusting dosages to minimize the risk of adverse effects. Additionally, preoperative assessment and optimization of comorbidities are crucial in geriatric patients to ensure safe anesthesia and postoperative recovery. Close monitoring and individualized anesthesia plans are essential to manage the unique challenges presented by the aging population.
