Acute Brain Failure

Acute Brain Failure | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
Delirium is the most common psychiatric syndrome found in the general hospital setting,
with an incidence as high as 87% in the acute care setting. Delirium is a neurobehavioral
syndrome caused by the transient disruption of normal neuronal activity secondary
to systemic disturbances. The development of delirium is associated with increased
morbidity, mortality, cost of care, hospital-acquired complications, placement in
specialized intermediate and long-term care facilities, slower rate of recovery, poor
functional and cognitive recovery, decreased quality of life, and prolonged hospital
stays. This article discusses the epidemiology, known etiological factors, presentation
and characteristics, prevention, management, and impact of delirium.
