Delirium as a predictor of mortality in mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit. In the intensive care unit (ICU), delirium is a common yet underdiagnosed form of organ dysfunction, and its contribution to patient outcomes is unclear.To determine if delirium is an independent predictor of clinical outcomes, including 6-month mortality and length of stay among ICU patients receiving mechanical ventilation.Prospective cohort study enrolling 275 consecutive mechanically (...) ventilated patients admitted to adult medical and coronary ICUs of a US university-based medical center between February 2000 and May 2001. Patients were followed up for development of delirium over 2158 ICU days using the Confusion Assessment Method for the ICU and the Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale.Primary outcomes included 6-month mortality, overall hospital length of stay, and length of stay in the post-ICU period. Secondary outcomes were ventilator-free days and cognitive impairment at hospital

Multidisciplinary team interventions for delirium in patients with chronic cognitive impairment. Delirium is common in hospitalized elderly people. Delirium may affect 60% of frail elderly people in hospital. Among the cognitively impaired, 45% have been found to develop delirium and these patients have longer lengths of hospital stay and a higher rate of complications which, with other factors, increase costs of care. The management of delirium has commonly been multifaceted, the primary (...) emphasis has to be on the diagnosis and therapy of precipitating factors, but as these may not be immediately resolved, symptomatic and supportive care are also of major importance.The objective of this review is to assess the available evidence for the effectiveness, if any, of multidisciplinary team interventions in the coordinated care of elderly patients with delirium superimposed on an underlying chronic cognitive impairment in comparison with usual care.The trials were identified from a last

Delirium is described using a variety of terms such as agitation, acute confusional states, encephalopathy, organic mental disorders, and terminal restlessness. Delirium may arise from any number of causes, and treatment should be directed at addressing these causes. In cases where this is not possible, or does not prove successful, the use (...) of drug therapy may become necessary.The primary objective of this review was to identify and evaluate studies examining medications used to treat patients suffering from delirium during the terminal phases of disease.We searched the following sources: MEDLINE (1966 to July 2003), EMBASE 1980 to July 2003), CINAHL (1982 to July 2003), PSYCH LIT (1974 to July 2003), PSYCHINFO (1990 to July 2003) and the Cochrane Library Volume 2, 2003) for literature pertaining to this topic.Prospective trials

Delirium is a common problem in the intensive care unit (ICU). Accurate diagnosis is limited by the difficulty of communicating with mechanically ventilated patients and by lack of a validated delirium instrument for use in the ICU.To validate a delirium assessment instrument that uses standardized nonverbal assessments for mechanically ventilated (...) patients and to determine the occurrence rate of delirium in such patients.Prospective cohort study testing the Confusion Assessment Method for ICU Patients (CAM-ICU) in the adult medical and coronary ICUs of a US university-based medical center.A total of 111 consecutive patients who were mechanically ventilated were enrolled from February 1, 2000, to July 15, 2000, of whom 96 (86.5%) were evaluable for the development of delirium and 15 (13.5%) were excluded because they remained comatose throughout

175. Multidisciplinary team interventions for delirium in patients with chronic cognitive impairment. (Abstract)

Multidisciplinary team interventions for delirium in patients with chronic cognitive impairment. Delirium is common in hospitalized elderly people. In the frail elderly, delirium may occur in 60% of those hospitalized. In the cognitively impaired, 45% have been shown to develop delirium and these patients have longer lengths of stay and a higher rate of complications which, amongst other things, together contribute to an increase in cost of care. The combination of being elderly and chronically (...) cognitively impaired leads to a high risk of delirium with the associated increased risk of prolonged hospital stay, complications, and poor outcomes. The management of delirium has commonly been multifaceted - the primary emphasis has always been on the diagnosis and therapy of the precipitating factors, but as this may not be immediately resolved, symptomatic and supportive care may become of major importance.The objective of this review is to assess the available evidence for the effectiveness, if any
