The Effect of a Parental Visitation Program on Emergence Delirium Among Postoperative Children in the PACU. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of parental presence on the incidence of emergence delirium (ED) of children in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU).A quasi-experimental pretest and post-test study with nonequivalent and nonsynchronized control groups.About 93 children aged 3 to 6 years undergoing general anesthesia for tonsillectomy were divided into two groups (...) : parental presence and absence. ED was recorded using the Pediatric Anesthesia Emergence Delirium Scale at 0, 10, 20, and 30 minutes after PACU admission.ED score at each time point in the experimental group was lower than the control group, but not statistically significant. ED score in the experimental group significantly decreased over time (F = 6.98; P = .010).Parental visitation programs could be effective on the degree of ED in children in the PACU setting.

Haloperidol and Ziprasidone for Treatment of Delirium in Critical Illness. There are conflicting data on the effects of antipsychotic medications on delirium in patients in the intensive care unit (ICU).In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, we assigned patients with acute respiratory failure or shock and hypoactive or hyperactive delirium to receive intravenous boluses of haloperidol (maximum dose, 20 mg daily), ziprasidone (maximum dose, 40 mg daily), or placebo. The volume (...) and dose of a trial drug or placebo was halved or doubled at 12-hour intervals on the basis of the presence or absence of delirium, as detected with the use of the Confusion Assessment Method for the ICU, and of side effects of the intervention. The primary end point was the number of days alive without delirium or coma during the 14-day intervention period. Secondary end points included 30-day and 90-day survival, time to freedom from mechanical ventilation, and time to ICU and hospital discharge

Low-Dose Nocturnal Dexmedetomidine Prevents ICU Delirium. A Randomized, Placebo-controlled Trial Dexmedetomidine is associated with less delirium than benzodiazepines and better sleep architecture than either benzodiazepines or propofol; its effect on delirium and sleep when administered at night to patients requiring sedation remains unclear.To determine if nocturnal dexmedetomidine prevents delirium and improves sleep in critically ill adults.This two-center, double-blind, placebo-controlled (...) trial randomized 100 delirium-free critically ill adults receiving sedatives to receive nocturnal (9:30 p.m. to 6:15 a.m.) intravenous dexmedetomidine (0.2 μg/kg/h, titrated by 0.1 μg /kg/h every 15 min until a goal Richmond Agitation and Sedation Scale score of -1 or maximum rate of 0.7 μg/kg/h was reached) or placebo until ICU discharge.

36. Cholinesterase inhibitors for the treatment of delirium in non-ICU settings. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Cholinesterase inhibitors for the treatment of delirium in non-ICU settings. Delirium is a common clinical syndrome defined as alterations in attention with an additional disturbance in cognition or perception, which develop over a short period of time and tend to fluctuate during the course of the episode. Delirium is commonly treated in hospitals or community settings and is often associated with multiple adverse outcomes such as increased cost, morbidity, and even mortality. The first-line (...) intervention involves a multicomponent non-pharmacological approach that includes ensuring effective communication and reorientation in addition to providing reassurance or a suitable care environment. There are currently no drugs approved specifically for the treatment of delirium. Clinically, however, various medications are employed to provide symptomatic relief, such as antipsychotic medications and cholinesterase inhibitors, among others.To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of cholinesterase

Processed electroencephalogram and evoked potential techniques for amelioration of postoperative delirium and cognitive dysfunction following non-cardiac and non-neurosurgical procedures in adults. Postoperative delirium (POD) and postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) may complicate a patient's postoperative recovery in several ways. Monitoring of processed electroencephalogram (EEG) or evoked potential (EP) indices may prevent or minimize POD and POCD, probably through optimization (...) could reduce the risk of postoperative delirium in patients aged 60 years or over undergoing non-cardiac surgical and non-neurosurgical procedures. We found moderate-quality evidence that postoperative cognitive dysfunction at three months could be reduced in these patients. The effect on POCD at one week and over one year after surgery is uncertain. There are no data available for patients under 60 years. Further blinded randomized controlled trials are needed to elucidate strategies

Comparison of clinical practice guidelines for the management of pain, agitation, and delirium in critically ill adult patients Guideline-based management approaches for pain, agitation, and delirium (PAD) in critically ill adult patients are widely believed to result in good outcomes. However, there are some differences in the recommendations and evidence levels among the management guidelines established for PAD. To identify and compare the current management guidelines, we used the PubMed (...) in the intensive care unit. Intravenous opioids were recommended as the first-line drug of choice for treating pain. Sedative titrated to maintain a light, rather than deep, level of sedation can be given unless clinically contraindicated. Although neither the PAD nor J-PAD guidelines recommend use of a pharmacologic delirium prevention protocol or treatment with any pharmacological agent to reduce the duration of delirium, the FEPIMCTI guidelines provide such recommendations.

40. Should This Patient Receive Prophylactic Medication to Prevent Delirium?: Grand Rounds Discussion From Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. (Abstract)

Should This Patient Receive Prophylactic Medication to Prevent Delirium?: Grand Rounds Discussion From Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. In 2015, the American Geriatrics Society released recommendations for prevention and management of postoperative delirium, based on a systematic literature review and evaluation of nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic approaches by an expert panel. The guidelines recommend an interdisciplinary focus on nonpharmacologic measures (reorientation, medication (...) management, early mobility, nutrition, and gastointestinal motility) for prevention and consideration of this strategy for acute management. They also recommend optimizing nonopioid medication as a means to manage pain and avoiding benzodiazepines other than to treat substance withdrawal. The authors concluded that evidence to recommend antipsychotics for prevention of delirium is insufficient but that these drugs may be considered for short-term treatment in the setting of imminent harm to the patient
