Abstract

Physiological and mental reserve decreases with age and the ability to mount a response to a stress like surgery can represent a burden to the frail and sarcopenic patient. It is necessary to evaluate the cardiorespiratory capacity and muscle strength before surgery in the older persons and prepare adequately to the same extent the marathon runner prepares before a full marathon. Assessment and stratification of risk are necessary for decision-making, but also for planning interventions aimed at improving the functional and emotional status in anticipation of surgery. Prehabilitation can improve the physiological reserve by optimizing cardiorespiratory capacity, muscle strength, and mental resiliency. Patients with low reserve and chronic medical conditions at high risk can benefit
