Abstract

The practice of gastrointestinal endoscopy in patients at the extremes of the age spectrum is increasingly common. Indications for endoscopy among the aged population vary significantly in incidence but only minimally in specifics, compared to the overall adult population. Conscious sedation requires heightened attention to dosing and effects of standard agents. Intensified monitoring is appropriate for many patients. Safe and effective diagnostic and therapeutic interventions can be expected in these age groups.
