9 Innovation in “Get-up-and-go-test Timed get-up-and-go test: sit, stand from arm-chair, walk 3 meters, turn, walk back to chair and sit down: one trial run before timed testCategorical scale & scoring< 10 sec. = freely mobile< 20 sec. = mostly independent20-29 sec. = variable mobility> 29 sec. = impaired mobility
10 Abnormal Gait in Old Age Frontal lobe gait (frontal ataxia or apraxia)Difficult gait initiation and sway, wide-based, flexed posture, small shuffling, hesitant stepMagnetic gait, slipping clutch syndromeDDx : Alzheimer’s diseaseVascular dementiaNormal pressure hydrocephalus
11 Abnormal Gait in Old Age Sensory Ataxic GaitWide-based, foot stamping walk with high stepping due to loss of proprioceptive input, constantly observe the foot positionRomberg’s sign positiveDDx : - Thiamin deficiency- Subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord- Spinal cord compression- Diabetic neuropathy
12 Cerebellar Ataxic Gait Wide-based, small irregular unsteady, staggering, sudden lurching to either side, forward or backward like being drunkAbnormal tandem gait, en bloc turningPoor coordination: proprioceptive, labyrinthine, visualDDx: vestibular damage, stroke, thiamin deficiencychronic alcoholism, progressive supranuclear palsy, hypothyroidism, drug intoxication
13 Spastic Gait Hemiplegia - Stiff, flexed hip, extended knee, plantar-flexed foot- Affected arm: flexed elbow across abdomen, impaired arm swing, toe scraping or dragging across the floor- Visual neglect or hemianopiaParalegia (scissoring gait)- Cervical spondylitic myolopathy, Subacute combined degeneration of spinal cord, chronic cord compression, lacunar infarcts
14 Steppage gaitLifting the feet hight off the ground due to foot drop (pretibial, peroneal muscle weakness)DDx: (peroneal nerve injury)Lumbar disc herniation(L4, L5, S1),Sciatic nerve trauma, spondylolisthesis,spinal stenosis, spinal cord injury,bone fractures (leg, vertebrae),stroke, tumor, DM,prolonged pressure
15 Festinating Gait Symmetric rapid shuffling of feet, stooped posture, flexed hip and kneeCentre of gravity shifted forwardDDx: Parkinsonism, vascular dementia, hydrocephalus
16 Podalgic GaitFoot disorders: corns, calluses, in-growing toe nails, bunion, atrophy of plantar padsLoose or tight-fitting footwear
17 Wadding Gait Duck or penguin’s walk Limb girdle muscle weakness, lateral trunk movement away from the foot as it liftsDifficulty climbing stair, getting up from low-seated chairDDx: hypo / hyperthyroidism,polymyositis, osteomalaciaproximal myopathy
18 Urinary incontinence - Urine secretion - 100 ml / hour - Fullness ml- Normal bladder capacity ml- Discomfort ml- Desperate or desire to micturate ml- Bladder pressure < 15 cm of water- Postvoid residual volume < 100 ml
21 Causes of Acute & Reversible Forms of Urinary Incontinence D DeliriumR Restricted mobility, RetentionI Infection*, Inflammation*, Impaction (fecal)P Polyuria**, Pharmaceuticals* Urinary Tract Infection, Atrophic vaginitis, urethritis.** Hyperglycemia, Congestive heart failure.
22 Persistent Incontinence Stress Leakage of urine (small amounts) with increases in intraabdominal pressureUrge Leakage of urine (larger volume) due to inability to delay voiding after sensation of fullnessOverflow Leakage of urine (small amounts) from urinary retentionFunctional Leakage of urine (larger volume) with inability to toilet due to impaired cognition, physical function, psychological, environmental barriers
23 Causes of Persistent Incontinence Stress Pelvic floor, Bladder outlet or Urethral sphincter weaknessUrge Overactive bladder, Detrusor hyperreflexia due to Cystitis, Urethritis, Tumor, Stone, Diverticuli,Stroke, Dementia, Parkinsonism, Suprasacral spinal cord injury3. Overflow Obstruction by Prostate, Stricture, CystoceleDM, spinal cord injuryDetrusor-sphincter dyssynergy4. Functional severe dementia, depression, impaired mobility, environmental barriers
24 การประเมินภาวะโภชนาการในผู้สูงอายุ ขาดอาหารBMI < 18.5การเปลี่ยนแปลงของน้ำหนักตัวอาหารเกินBMI > 22.9เส้นรอบพุง abdominal circumference90 cm. ในชาย 80 cm. ในหญิง
25 ภาวะทุโภชนาการในผู้สูงอายุ MEALS ON WHEELS M: medicationsE: emotional (depression)A: alcoholism, anorexia, abuse of the eldersL: late-life paranoiaS: swallowing problems (dysphagia)O: oral problemsN: no money (poverty)
26 W: wandering and other dementia-related problems H: hyperthyroidism, pheochromocytomaE: enteric problems (malabsorption)E: eating problemsL: low salt, low cholesterol dietS: shopping and meal preparation problems3 common causes: malignancy depression GI problems

30 Screening for depression In practice: ask 2 questionsOver the past 2 weeks, have you felt down, depressed, or hopeless?Over the past 2 weeks, have you felt little interest or pleasure in doing things?If “yes” for both questions, proceed to Thai Geriatric Depression Scale
31 Thai Geriatric Depression Scale Train the Brain Forum
32 Comprehensive geriatric assessment Social assessment - relationship in familyCaregiver : aware of elder abuse in dementiaPhysical abuseCaring abuse : nutrition, drug compliance, pressure ulcer, incontinence, instrumentationFinancial : family support, welfareEnvironment : housing, neighbor, elderly club, communityPay attention to living alone, poor !!
33 Comprehensive geriatric assessment Functional assessmentBasic activity of daily living (basic ADL): transfer, mobility, toilet use, grooming, urine, stool, bathing, dressing, eating, stairingInstrumental activity of daily living (iADL): washing & cleaning, cooking, shopping, financial, transport & communication, drug usePay attention to recent loss of ADL !!
