Diagnosis for Geriatric Patients

What kind of diagnosis will I receive?

In Geriatric cardiology, tests like blood tests or scans will be similar to general cardiology. What is more critical when diagnosing geriatric patients will be:

  • Assessing symptoms amidst multimorbid conditions and multiple causes

  • Interpretation of diagnostic testing in context of age

  • Diagnosing cardiac disease in relation to geriatric syndromes (falls, dizziness, syncope, weakness)
