Abstract

The diagnosis and treatment of reactive airways disease in elderly patients with cardiovascular disease are complicated both by similarities in presenting symptoms and by the potential for one disorder's pharmacologic therapy to exacerbate the other. Because both heart disease and asthma are common in elderly adults, their coexistence and interaction in an individual patient are frequently encountered and are often a vexing clinical problem. This article is written from the point of view of consulting cardiologists, who are often asked to comment on cardiac causes of dyspnea and the safety of certain medications in patients with heart disease.
