Hypotensive Syndromes in Geriatric Patients
Description of Hypotensive Syndromes in Geriatric Patients
This book is designed to present a comprehensive approach to the management of hypotensive syndromes in the aging population. Because these syndromes exhibit symptoms that are similar to a wide array of medical ailments, these diseases are easy to misdiagnose, leading to consequences as severe as death.
Currently there are no guidelines or good resource to guide about these conditions, leaving physicians with no tools to combat these issues. This book discusses the challenges of diagnosis and management of these conditions and offers clear guidelines for treatment.
The text introduces the concepts to set a clear foundation before covering the syndromes as they present in other comorbidities, including diabetes, heart failure, and a wide array of serious conditions that are common in older patients, which is especially valuable for specialists who may not be trained in aging medicine.
Hypotensive Syndromes in Geriatric Patients is a vital resource for geriatricians, family and internal medicine physicians, cardiologists, nephrologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and all medical professionals who work with aging patients.
