Long time lurker here. Been interested in anesthesiology for a couple of years despite the issues that face the specialty. This post is for the veterans out there as well as the residents. I am a third year student in the middle of my medicine clerkship. Ive been assigned to the geriatrics service for the next two weeks and will need to present a 5-10 minute topic of interest. Thought it would be interesting to talk about the perioperative care of the elderly. So I was wondering if I could pick your collective brains for a bit. What are some of the things you see on a daily basis that are unique to the geriatric population (besides the fact that they're generally a sicker bunch)? Thanks in advance for your help.
