Geriatric Cardiology

Geriatric cardiology or cardiogeriatrics deals with the cardiovascular diagnosis and management of heart disease in the elderly population. As the population gets older, the risk to develop cardiovascular disease increases and more prone to suffer their consequences. CVD is usually more hazardous in older patients. It often erupts with multiple simultaneous CVD processes and in combination with non-cardiac pathologies. Such combination of multi system diseases are more liable to overwhelm the diminished CV reserve capacity of aging, thus leading to adverse outcomes. The prevalence of diastolic and systolic heart failure, atrial fibrillation, aortic stenosis and electrical conduction defects increases with age, resulting in a significant burden of cardiovascular disease. To fulfill the needs of care for the growing geriatric population, future cardiologists require education specifically directed at appropriate evaluation and risk stratification of elderly patients. Cardiovascular disease at elderly age is superimposed on the cardiovascular changes of aging, most of which underlie many common disorders of aging and limit the physiologic compensatory mechanisms for disease.
