Modifications in endoscopic practice for the elderly

Nov 14, 2016, 20:26 PM
The use of GI endoscopy in geriatric patients is increasing as a larger proportion of the population is reaching an advanced age. In the year 2010, 40.3 million people (13.0% of the total population) were 65 years of age and older, and 5.5 million were aged 85 years of age and older in the United States.3 The number of individuals 65 years and older is expected to increase to more than 20% of the total U.S. population by 2030, with individuals 85 years and older representing the fastest growing segment of this group. This guideline is intended to provide guidance regarding endoscopic practice issues in the elderly. Previous guidelines have defined geriatric patients as those 65 years of age and older, and patients of advanced age as those 80 years of age and older.1 Because physiologic age is a continuum, this guideline is not intended to apply to rigidly defined age ranges.
