Definicia Geriatrickej Mediciny

Geriatricka Medicina je a odbor mediciny zaoberajuci sa telesnymi, psychickymi, funkčnymi a socialnymi stavmi v akutnom i chronickom štadiu, rehabilitaciou, prevenciou a starostlivosťou na konci života u staršich pacientov.

Tato skupina pacientov je zraniteľnejšia a ma mnohopočetne patologicke stavy, vyžadujuce si holisticky pristup. Prejavy chorob vo vyššom veku možu byť odlišne, čo sťažuje diagnozu. Odpoveď na liečbu je často spomalena a veľmi často je potrebna socialna podpora.

Geriatricka Medicina preto presahuje ramec organovo zameranej mediciny a poskytuje pridatnu liečbu poskytovanu multidisciplinarnym timom, ktorej cieľom je optimalizacia funkčneho stavu staršieho človeka a zlepšenie jeho kvality života a autonomie.

Geriatricka Medicina nie je vekovo špecifikovana ale zaobera sa multimorbiditou typickou pre staršieho pacienta. Vačšina pacientov je staršich ako 65 rokov, ale vačšina problemov, ktore rieši s vyskytuje častejšie vo veku nad 80 rokov.
