Human biological aging is characterized by progressive decline in each organ system which starts environmental and genetic factors, diet and personal habits. When people age, they are more likely to suffer from disease, disability, and treatment side effects combined with the decrease in the physiological reserve. These added burdens make the older person more vulnerable to environmental, pathological and pharmacological insults. Understanding these facts is "crucial" for optimal care of older patients.
In the elderly patient, diseases are more likely to present differently than in younger patients, because disease presentation if often atypical, and the patient's ability to cope with it is impaired. Therefore, early recognition of these changes is key for proper diagnosis and treatment.
