Intraoperative care and anesthetic management.
Ageing is a physiological phenomenon that affects everyone over time and is clinically defined by degenerative changes to organ and tissue structure as well as their ability to function. Geriatric patients are typically more responsive to anaesthetic drugs. Usually, less medication is needed to produce the desired clinical result, and the duration of the drug's effects is common. The primary goal of perioperative treatment for the elderly population is to hasten recovery and prevent functional deterioration. When working with an elderly patient, it's crucial to keep the following in mind: All organ systems experience a steady loss of functional reserve as they get older, though to varying degrees. Age-related alterations are typically compensated for well, but the physiological reserve is limited under stress, such as during the perioperative period.Author(s): John Michael*
