Research on geriatric conditions in ICU patients is crucial to the understanding of the impact of age-related conditions on the survival of critically ill patients. By means of this collection we would like to provide valuable insights into the prevalence of geriatric “syndromes” in the ICU, including delirium, falls, frailty, and cognitive impairment. We also aim at highlighting the need for a dedicated approach to caring for geriatric patients in the ICU, including the use of geriatric assessments and tailored treatment plans; informing clinical practice and improving the quality of care for elderly patients in the ICU.
We hope the collection will significantly contribute to the field of critical care medicine and provide a foundation for further research on geriatric syndromes and their impact on patient outcomes.
Unsolicited submissions are welcome.
