Physiology of ageing

Abstract: The impact that ageing has on organisms is a complex interaction between the processes of ageing at a cellular, organ and integrated systems level, and the effects of environmental factors such as nutrition, infection and trauma. Recovery from an insult that triggers a pathological response is never complete. The incremental fall in possible performance is part of the progressive diversity in ‘physiology’ that is the true hallmark of ageing. In this article we will outline some of the physiological changes, particularly cardiorespiratory, associated with the ageing process that will be of relevance to anaesthesia.

PintoAbstractCardiorespiratory complications are among the most common causes of postoperative morbidity and mortality and impose a significant financial burden on the NHS. Patients with premorbid cardiorespiratory diseases can be identified preoperatively with a thorough history taking along with targeted investigations. Preoperative evaluation, risk assessment and stratification allows for clear identification of higher risk patients who would benefit from preoperative medical optimization, appropriate planning ...

Conclusions: Recurrent AHCE should be taken seriously and managed with conventional work-up. If noninformative, genetic work-up should follow irrespective of the family history.

Conclusions: The results suggested that ERG responses, especially in OPs, are greatly affected by the type of anesthetic. It is important to consider the sensitive responses influenced by the selection of anesthetics when ERG is performed. PMID: 31741653 [PubMed - in process]
