Educational objectives: 

This product is part of a series of digitized lectures devoted to topics in clinical geriatrics, designed to teach important principles in the management of older persons. With this lecture series, learners will be able to improve their overall knowledge about managing common geriatric syndromes and understand the unique health care needs of older patients. They will learn about the differences in the management of common clinical conditions, and how physiologic changes associated with aging impact management. They will develop a working knowledge of important legal and ethical issues associated with end-of-life care; and understand and apply principles of the multi-disciplinary geriatric assessment.

The learning objectives of this particular digitized presentation are:

  1. Understand and recognize signs of vascular disease in the elderly.
  2. Develop management strategies to identify and treat abdominal aortic aneurism in the elderly.
  3. Develop management strategies to identify and treat carotid disease in the elderly.
