The geriatric population shows significant physiological changes due to aging and the multiple co-morbidities that they often present. Conventionally the propofol sedation dose for patients older than 65 years is 80% of the adult dose. We performed an in silico trial for elderly population and the results showed that the necessary simulated dose of propofol was lower than the conventional dose; therefore, a clinical trial was implemented to test three different propofol doses, two of them lower than the conventional dose, during a pacemaker implantation...

OBJECTIVE: There is a growing concern about a shortage of physician scientists. This problem is particularly severe in certain subspecialties such as geriatrics in general and geriatric psychiatry in particular. This study sought to obtain medical students' perspectives on barriers and facilitators toward pursuing a career in academics and/or in geriatric psychiatry or geriatic medicine. METHODS: The study surveyed 27 first-year medical students from six US medical schools, who had demonstrated a clear interest in academic geriatrics by completing a mentored summer research training program in geriatric medicine or geriatric psychiatry, funded by the National Institute on Aging...

Age and ageing is a biological property of all living beings. It has been estimated that there would be more than 120 crore people by 2020 over 65 years in the world out of which 90 crores alone n.ill be in the developed countries. At present there are than 30% people in Europe who are more than 60 Years the highest being in Sweden. Lin India the percentage of old people is around 10 which is comparatively low. But the total number of such people is very significant due to the vast population, increasing life expectancy and better health care...

Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor is a rare neurogenic tumor that usually presents in geriatic patients. Typically, it is found in the trunk and extremities and rarely presents in the head and neck region. It may mimic a carotid body tumor when it presents in the neck. We report the first case of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor of the vagus nerve in an adolescent boy. He presented with an asymptomatic lateral neck lump that was thought to be a benign schwannoma on preoperative imaging. We describe the diagnostic dilemma and management difficulties in this patient and review the literature...

The primary aim of the present study was to examine the relationship of changes in hemoglobin levels following recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) treatment to changes in cognitive functioning studied by Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) in elderly cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment. The secondary aim was that to assess the relationship of changes in hemoglobin levels following rHuEPO treatment to changes in functions studied by Comprehensive Geriatic Assessment (CGA), such as Activity of Daily Living (ADL), Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL), Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) and the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA)...

This article is based on a lecture held in the 1st Debrecen Days of Internal Medicine, in which the author summarizes the situation of specialisation in geriatrics in EU members and Hungary. There are significant differences between countries in this field. Not all EU member countries accept geriatrics as an independent specialty, but the education in graduate level is present uniquely. Geriatrics is accepted as a specialty from 2000 in Hungary and there are nearly 100 geriaters up till now. Higher and higher percentage of european population is in age over 65 years, so the importance of education of geriatrics is a great demand in the near future...

Vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) was proposed as an umbrella term to include subjects affected with any degree of cognitive impairment resulting from cerebrovascular disease (CVD), ranging from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to vascular dementia. VCI may or may not exclude the host of "focal" circumscribed impairments of specialized functions such as language (aphasia), intentional gesture (apraxia), or categorical recognition (agnosia), among others, that may result from a stroke. Therefore, there are no universally accepted diagnostic criteria for VCI...

UNLABELLED: The Alzheimer's disease (AD) is today regarded as a degenerative pathology with a serious and common complication: occurrence of mental and behavioral disturbances. Among this neuropsychiatrics symptoms, the depressive symptoms occupy a significant place by their frequency and their consequences on the caregiver's burden. The prevalence of such disorders is very variously appreciated in the literature. OBJECTIVE: To assess with precision depressive symptoms in a population with Alzheimer's disease rated on neuropsychiatric inventory NPI...

We investigated whether regimen comprehension deteriorated in the elderly patients who did not suffer from obvious dementia. Eligible patients were ambulatory elderly patients who did not show any signs of dementia and could visit our outpatient clinic by themselves. 138 patients (age: 43-89, 75 males and 63 females, underlying diseases: hypertension, hyperlipidemia, arrhythmia etc.) were tested with a regimen comprehension scale (RCS: Jpn J Geriat 1997; 34: 209-214). The differences in scores among individuals increased with age...

It is always important that physicians not overreact to apparently abnormal laboratory values by undertaking inappropriate further investigations or clinical treatments. When confronted with unexpected differing test results from repeat testing in the same individual, physicians should be aware of explanations other than laboratory error and change in the patient's clinical status. While test-related variables may be factors, intraindividual biologic variation is much more common and may be the explanation for discrepant results...

The purpose of this study was to assess whether regimen comprehension deteriorates in the elderly without obvious mental disability. Eligible patients were elderly who could visit hospitals by themselves. We recruited 138 patients (age: 43-89, 75 males and 63 females, underlying diseases: hypertension, hyperlipidemia, arrhythmia etc.) from our outpatient clinic. The participants were tested with a regimen comprehension scale (RCS: Jpn J Geriat 1997; 34:209-214). The differences in scores among individuals increased with age...

Previous reports demonstrated that mammalian atrioventricular (AV) valves possess a dense nerve plexus, consisting of nerve subpopulations which differ from each other in densities and patterns of distribution in the valves, and which may have sensory or motor roles in valve function. Although there is extensive evidence that age-related changes occur in autonomic nerves of animals and humans (Daly et al. J. Pharm. Exp. Ther., 1988;245(3):798-803; Ingall et al. Aust. NZ J. Med., 1990;20:570-577; Tumer et al...

Ageing constitutes a risk factor for magnesium deficit. Primary magnesium deficit originates from two etiological mechanisms: deficiency and depletion. Primary magnesium deficiency is due to insufficient magnesium intake. Dietary amounts of magnesium are marginal in the whole population whatever the age. Nutritional deficiencies are more pronounced in institutionalized than in free-living ageing groups. Primary magnesium depletion is due to dysregulation of factors controlling magnesium status: intestinal magnesium hypoabsorption, reduced magnesium bone uptake and mobilisation, sometimes urinary leakage, hyperadrenoglucocorticism by decreased adaptability to stress, insulin-resistance and adrenergic hyporeceptivity...
