Abstrakt

Older patients admitted to the emergency departments represent a heterogeneous group, some are frail with reduced reserve capacity and without ability to compensate to acute illness. They often present with nonspecific complaints and atypical presentation and are at-risk of complications and adverse events. These patients need a fast comprehensive interdisciplinary and multicomponent assessment and intervention to reduce the risk of further functional decline and to optimize their overall health status, independency and quality of life. This is the purpose of acute geriatrics.
