Assessment of the Geriatric Patient: Cardiovascular System (Nursing)

by Rhonda Lawes, PhD, RN

Among the important physiologic changes experienced by geriatric patients are changes to their heart function and blood vessels. To provide the best possible care to these patients, it’s important to know which changes are normal and which are pathologic.

In this course, you’ll learn about the basic cardiovascular changes (including those related to baroreceptors and cardiac reserve), changes to the heart tissue and cardiac valves, and how these changes affect patients in their daily lives.
