Show Notes

The World’s population is aging. By 2030, 20 percent of the US population will be over the age of 65 years.  Older patients have a number of age-related physiologic changes that impact their disease presentation and resuscitation.  In this podcast, we review common physiologic changes in the geriatric patient and provide critical resuscitation pearls when confronted with the sick, geriatric patient.
