Traumatic injuries in the geriatric population is associated with higher
mortality and complication rates when compared with younger patients.
This is secondary to their decreased physiological reserve, presence of
frailties, co-morbidities and poly-pharmacy, with increased risk of elderly related
complications such as delirium and functional decline.
Elderly-specific care protocols within a multi-disciplinary trauma service
ensures better risk assessment, adoption of preventive strategies, active
monitoring and prompt recognition and treatment of complications, hence
reducing mortality and morbidity rates within this at-risk population.
Join us in this free webinar as our panel of speakers from various
institutions share with you interesting and varied insights and discussions
into the injury management and peri-operative care aspects.
