Abstract

The volume of geriatric trauma patients is expected to increase significantly in coming years. Recognition of severe injuries may be delayed because they are less likely to mount classic symptoms of hemodynamic instability. Head injuries of any severity may place geriatric patients at increased risk of mortality, but there are currently no geriatric-specific treatment recommendations that differ from usual adult guidelines. Our understanding of best practices in geriatric trauma and anesthesia care continues to expand, as it does in all other areas of medicine.
