Anesthesia for the Elderly
Need for an operation increases as diseases start to raise among the elderly compared to the youth. As age increases, injuries due to falls, and eye problems such as cataract necessitate application of anesthesia, since they require surgical intervention.
The anesthesia method to be preferred for the elder patient is determined after the analysis of the anesthetist. The general health status of the patient is considered alongside with criteria, such as the scale and the duration of the operation, during the analysis for anesthesia.
Because there are different health problems other than those that require surgical operations, it is aimed to minimize these problems as much as possible before anesthesia so that the patient can go through the operation without being affected by the anesthesia.
Post-anesthesia care is as important as anesthesia itself, especially for elder patients. Regardless of whether the operation is big or small, the patient is affected both psychologically and physically. Thus, the professionalism of the post-operation care and attitude towards the patient are very important.
