Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry: Optimum Care, Emerging Limitations, and Realistic Goals

Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry: Optimum Care, Emerging Limitations, and Realistic Goals

Inpatient Geriatric Psychiatry

This book offers mental health guidelines for all medical professionals facing the emerging challenges presented by an aging population worldwide.  The text acknowledges that as the geriatric demographic grows, limited resources and infrastructures demand quality protocols to deliver inpatient geriatric psychiatric care, and that many physicians may not be trained to address these specific needs.  This text fills this gap with guidelines assessing, diagnosing, and treating aging patients as they present in the emergency room and other settings.

Unlike any other text, this book focuses on how to optimize the use of the inpatient setting by recommending evaluations and treatments, and offering flow-charts and figures of key points, to guide both general workup and continued evaluation and treatment. This approach aims to minimize instances of premature release or readmissions and to improve outcomes.

Handbook of Sleep Disorders in Medical Conditions

Handbook of Sleep Disorders in Medical Conditions

Handbook of Sleep Disorders in Medical Conditions

Handbook of Sleep Disorders in Medical Conditions reviews the current knowledge on the nature and manifestations of sleep disorders associated with a variety of common medical conditions, including epilepsy, traumatic brain injury and dementia. It also provides clinical guidelines on how to assess and treat them with pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions. Although the general principles of sleep medicine may be applied to some extent to patients with comorbid medical conditions, this book makes the case that an adaptive approach is warranted when considering the particularities of each condition.

In addition, clinicians must also be cautious when prescribing sleep medications as some pharmacological agents are known to exacerbate symptoms associated with the medical condition, such as cognitive deficits (i.e. difficulties with memory and attention) in cancer patients experiencing chemo brain, or in persons with neurologic conditions (e.g. mild cognitive impairment, dementia, stroke, brain injury). A differential approach to evaluating and treating sleep is thus warranted.

  • Presents a general overview on assessing and treating sleep disorders that are applicable to a diverse set of patients
  • Provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of the literature on the prevalence and manifestations of sleep problems related to specific medical conditions
  • Includes practical information regarding special considerations for the assessment and treatment of sleep issues in specific medical conditions
