Methods The virus serum specific IgM antibodies of 318 elderly patients(≥65 years) in three Class-A hospitals were detected by the indirect enzyme linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA),including influenza virus A (FluA),influenza virus B (FluB),respiratory syncytial virus(RSV),aderovirus (ADV) and parainfluenza virus (PIV).
Meth-ods The clinical data of 168 senile patients with respinratory mycotic superinfection and 30 senile patients without respiratory mycoticsuperinfection from 2000 to 2004 were analysed retrospectively.
The early percutaneous coronary intervention in elderly patients with acute coronary syndrome
It was shown that early PCI might be an effective and safe method to treat elderly patients with ACS.
Correlations between the impairments of higher cortical functions (assessed by clinical scores and neuropsychological tests) and multichannel EEG spectra were analyzed in elderly patients with mild dementia and children with cognitive problems.
Thus, the 5-HTT gene polymorphisms do not affect the risk of depression but is possibly associated with specific clinical signs of the disease, at least in elderly patients.
The risk factors for RCIN are primarily pre-existing (even mild) renal dysfunction, diabetes mellitus, absolute or relative hypovolemia, nephrotoxic drugs, etc., particularly in elderly patients.
