Blood disorders in the elderly

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The developed world has an increasingly aging population, with approximately 10% of the population aged over 65 years. As the incidence and prevalence of blood disorders increases with age, these conditions are a heavy burden on healthcare systems. Blood Disorders in the Elderly will provide hematologists, geriatricians and all clinicians involved in the care of patients with blood disorders with clear clinical advice on the diagnosis and management of these conditions. The introductory section reviews epidemiology of aging and anemia and provides a comprehensive approach to the management of cancer in the aging patient. This is followed by a full discussion of hemopoiesis and changes it undergoes in aging. The remaining sections cover the diagnosis and management of all major disorders: anemia, malignancy, coagulation and platelet disorders and hemophilia. A detailed chapter on antithrombotic therapies is also included. Reviews: 'This is a brilliant contribution to the field. The excellent organisation of the book is matched by superb editing that provides an even tone of voice often lacking in multi-authored books. … This book will be the lodestone that directs future research in the haematology of old age.' David O. Staats, University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center 'Haematologic disorders, covering from mild to severe diseases are part of everyday practice in geriatric wards. For this reason this book could be welcome on the shelves of geriatricians dealing with internal medicine. … The subject of this book, if covered in detail, could fill an encyclopaedia. The authors managed to treat the…topics in a comprehensive manner, limiting thereby the volume of this treatise. The texts are written in an easily understandable style… The chapter headings…show clearly that the chosen topic is well covered, For these reasons this book is highly recommended for geriatric clinical practitioners.'
