As the number of people aged 65 and older rises in the general population, they make up a growing share of emergency department (ED) visitors. When compared to most younger adults, older adults often have physical, psychological, and social concerns that necessitate a different approach to management and discharge planning. They are also more likely to have accumulated morbidity throughout their lives. As clinicians adapt to the challenges of a growing population, a focus on geriatric emergency medicine is becoming more important. Join us live as Dr. GS Grewal, a senior consultant- Elder Care, Fortis Escorts Hospital & the President of Indian Medical Association (Delhi 21-22), outlines the current trends in ED usage by older adults and gives an overview of how care of older people is structured in emergency medicine.
