Abstract

The elderly patient with acute gastrointestinal bleeding requires a management approach that attends to age-dependent demands, such as functional status, the independent impact of functional status on outcomes such as short term mortality, and the consent process. This review examines issues such as patient triage, resuscitation, diet and medications, anticoagulation, endoscopy and conscious sedation, informed consent in the impaired patient, and discharge planning in light of these age-dependent demands.
