Management of Elderly Major Trauma Patients


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.
