With a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) has developed the Multiple Chronic Conditions: Geriatrics Evaluation and Management Strategies App (MCC GEMS) to address one of the greatest challenges in clinical care of older adults: providing optimal care for frail elders with multiple chronic conditions, or multimorbidity. The MCC GEMS App will help guide the clinician through an approach to managing patients with multimorbidity, one that is built on a firm understanding of the principles of evidence-based medicine, patient preferences and goals of care, clinically feasible methods for understanding prognosis, and the multi-factorial geriatric issues and syndromes that may be consequences of the combinations of diseases and conditions (e.g., polypharmacy). This Approach is based on the AGS’s Guiding Principles for the Care of Older Adults with Multimorbidity: An Approach for Clinicians: http://www.americangeriatrics.org/files/documents/MCC.principles.pdf
* Beers Criteria
For more than 20 years, the Beers Criteria for Potentially Inappropriate Medication Use in Older Adults has been the leading source of information about the safety of prescribing drugs for older people. To help prevent medication side effects and other drug-related problems in older adults, the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) has updated and expanded this important resource.
* Geriatrics Cultural Navigator
The Navigator offers quick guidance on different cultures including preferred forms of address, nonverbal communication, acculturation, culture-specific health risks, disclosure and consent, tradition and health beliefs, gender issues, approaches to decision-making, and use of advanced directives.
* GeriPsych Consult
This app has been developed to assist healthcare providers in managing psychotic symptoms and disorders in older adults. It is based on two publications of the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) (www.americangeriatrics.org), the 2010 edition of The Geriatrics Review Syllabus and 2011 edition of Geriatrics At Your Fingertips.
* Guide to Common Immunizations
The AGS Pocket Guide to Common Immunizations for the Older Adult was developed by the American Geriatrics Society to help clinicians ensure that their older patients get all of their vaccinations. This app includes essential information about four must-have vaccines for seniors and five of the most commonly prescribed travel vaccines.
* Management of Atrial Fibrillation
This app discusses the recommendations of the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American Heart Association (AHA) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Guidelines and their effectiveness in managing AF to prevent strokes. It lists the risks and benefits of treatment options, including warfarin alternatives, and describes the co-morbidities and geriatric syndromes common among older adults with AF.
* Prevention of Falls Guidelines
The Guideline for Prevention of Falls in Older Persons aims to assist health care professionals in their assessment of fall risk and in their management of older adults who have fallen or are at risk of falling.
In an ageing population, geriatric medicine has become central to general practice, and to emergency and general internal medicine in the hospital setting. Diseases are more common in the older person, and can be particularly difficult to assess and to treat effectively in a field that has limited evidence, yet makes up a substantial proportion of the work of most clinicians. Fully updated, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicineincludes all the information required to deliver effective geriatric care. Guidance is given on a range of key treatment areas, indicating where practice differs from that of younger adults or is ill informed by evidence, where dangers lurk for the inexperienced clinician, and on the many ethical and clinical dilemmas common in geriatric practice. This accessible handbook is essential reading for all junior doctors and specialist trainees in geriatric medicine and general internal medicine, and for all medical and nursing staff who manage older people.
-An award winning hands-on guide to the care of the older patient
-Provides guidance on the ethical and clinical dilemmas common to geriatric practice
-Includes 'How to' boxes providing practical advice on common problems

-Covers recent developments in stroke/TIA
-Updated Ethics section to include changes due to Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards

Readership: Essential reading for F1s, F2s, and STs in geriatric medicine and general internal medicine, clinical medical students, clinical assistants and other non-consultant career grade hospital doctors. It will also be useful to GPs, specialist nurses, and doctors working outside geriatric medicine who manage older people.
Audience: This Oxford Handbook is intended for a UK audience as well as other areas which follow UK medical practice including Europe, Australia, the Middle East, India and East Asia.
Authors: Lesley Bowker, James Price, and Sarah Smith

Geriatrics differs from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. The aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body, and during old age, the decline of various organ systems becomes manifest.

This program is intended to provide a quick reference to the drugs and dosages required to perform a Rapid Sequence Intubation (RSI). It does NOT take the place of formal classes which teach this skill - you won't learn RSI from scratch by using this app.
This app is designed to be stepped through rapidly - patient class (Adult, Pediatric, or Geriatric); patient weight in pounds or kgs, or Broselow tape if pediatric; finally, patient health considerations - does this patient have an intracranial bleed? Is this patient hypotensive? Should hyperkalemia be suspected? - finally, here are your drugs and dosages.
Any pre-assessment should be performed prior to attempting an intubation (LEMONS, BONES, Mallampati scoring, etc.)
Tap Menu -> Help (post-KitKat, long press Menu to get the menu items) for further information, and remember always to stick to your protocols.
This is Betterware; if you can think of any way to make it better, please drop me a suggestion at DTsEMT@gmail.com, and Thanks!
