This is a guide book that showcases the commonest clinical problems encountered in the inpatient setting concerning elderly patients. Each chapter is based on a symptomatic theme and quizzes the reader through the evolution of a patient scenario upon hospitalisation. Engaging discussions occur after each quiz question, focusing on approaches and diagnostic and therapeutic pearls.This practical handbook will be exceedingly useful for both junior and senior clinicians who deal with elderly inpatients on a day to day basis. Medical students and other students of geriatric medicine will also find it beneficial for their revision.Nationally and globally, populations are ageing. We are seeing an increasing number of elderly patients being admitted to the hospital for a variety of medical problems. The government is placing increasing emphasis on recruiting, training and retaining generalist clinicians (hospitalists) who need to take care of elderly patients in hospitals. As such, this book will be an extremely practical resource for hospitalists around the world. Using a quiz format on a background of an evolving patient scenario, the reader is led on an exciting journey to discover one's gaps in diagnostic and management aspects and to learn useful approaches and tips from our experts.
