Abstract
Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming birth, injury, and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable. But in the inevitable condition of aging and death, the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit. Nursing homes, preoccupied with safety, pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs. Hospitals isolate the dying, checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot. Doctors, committed to extending life, continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering. Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession's ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified.

Abstract
"This one-day seminar provides an in-depth discussion of essential aspects of caring for the geriatric patient. Physiologic changes with aging are correlated with physical assessment findings as well as side effects of common drugs used in the aging population. An emphasis on neurologic function includes peripheral neuropathies, dementia and delirium, movement disorders and the special senses. Type 2 diabetes and thyroid dysfunction are covered in the Endocrine System. Reproductive changes are gender specific and include causes of erectile dysfunction in the male and menopausal changes in the female. Cardiovascular diseases include coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis as well as hypertension and CHF. Respiratory function briefly covers COPD and other age related changes in lung function. The effect of NSAIDS in the GI system is emphasized as are the common causes of constipation in the elderly population. The effect of a decreased glomerular filtration rate and drug excretion is correlated with side effects and drug toxicity. This lecture is presented in Barb's characteristically humorous fashion and is a must for anyone working with and caring for Geriatric patients. It truly is a "GEM" of a lecture." -- Barb Bancroft website.
