MedPage Today (7/27, George) reports that an “analysis of Danish national registry data” indicated “post-infection mortality was higher in older adults with dementia than others in both the short- and long-term.” Researchers found that “among 1.5 million adults followed for a total of nearly 13 million years, people who had both dementia and infection-related hospital visits died at a 6.5 times higher rate than people with neither.” Additionally, “they…had a three-fold increased mortality rate over dementia-free older adults with infection-related hospital visits.” The findings were presented at the virtual Alzheimer’s Association International Conference.(SOURCE: APA Headlines)
