Example text

They may be due either to a thrombus in situ or an atheromatous plaque or to an embolism arising elsewhere in the vascular tree or from the heart. Sometimes infarction is attributed to haemodynamic causes; cardiac arrhythmias, carotid sinus hypersensitivity and drugs producing hypotension have all been implicated. Textbooks list criteria for distinguishing the different types of stroke (see Table 5). In practice these are unreliable. For example, a small haemorrhage may not cause loss of consciousness and may not be associated with headaches if blood does not reach the subarachnoid space.

In more severe or chronic cardiac failure, compensation may not be achieved and fluid retention becomes excessive as evidenced by peripheral oedema, etc. It is here that diuretics can re-establish compensation. Diuretics in the Elderly Any agent which increases urine output is a diuretic agent. Thus digoxin itself was initially thought to be a diuretic. However, there are now only three different groups of diuretics in clinical use ~ thiazides, loop agents and potassium-sparing diuretics. All are usually effective in the treatment of cardiac failure in old people but manifest varying adverse effects.

In the acute situation, especially following myocardial infarction, phentolamine and nitroprusside are of undoubted benefit. In the elderly patient with 'cold' septicaemic shock, nitroprusside infusion can be life saving. Most experience of balanced dilators has been obtained with prazosin though the newer agent trimazosin may be of more use in the elderly by virtue of less side effects and longer duration of action. Prazosin does not increase heart rate and may demonstrate a severe 'first dose' syncope.
