Society for the Advancement of Geriatric Anesthesia

 

A brief synopsis of anesthetic techniques and how it affects the older patient can be found here. In addition, common complications of surgery and anesthesia in older patients are described.


Are you or a loved one planning surgery in the near future? The American Society of Anesthesiologists has a patient education section in their Lifeline to Modern Medicine website. One section deals with anesthesia issues for older patients.
