The Aging Kidney in Health and Disease

Buy

This volume will be a reliable source on the management of the elderly with renal disease. There is an ever-increasing proportion of the aging population affected by renal disease and hypertension, and physicians are faced with atypical clinical presentations of renal disease in the aged as compared to younger people. This volume combines the fields of nephrology and geriatrics and presents a multidisciplinary approach to the topic.

The latter half of the 20th century was characterized by a significant increase in the number of elderly. This worldwide biological and demographic phenomenon has many implications for a large number of different disciplines, including health, politics, economics, social services, and others.

This introductory chapter will deal with the demography of the aged, will present the concept of frailty in the elderly, and will provide a comprehensive approach to the clinical evaluation of older people. We will emphasize the effect of some of the physiological changes of aging on the clinical evaluation; describe factors that make the assessment of the older patient more complex, especially the nonspecific presentation of disease and the frequent presence of multiple pathology in advanced age; describe the impact of social and economic factors on the health status of the elderly; and, in particular, detail the functional and clinical manifestations resulting from the combination of these phenomena. Finally, the chapter will discuss the provision of home care services designed to meet the needs of the elderly.
