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)
