Delirium in Critically Ill Patients

Delirium is a serious disturbance in mental abilities, resulting in decreased awareness of one’s environment and confused thinking. The onset of this condition usually occurs very rapidly, often with hours or a few days. Symptoms may include an inability to stay focused on a topic or to change topics; wandering attention; getting stuck on an idea rather than responding to questions or conversation; being easily distracted by unimportant things; being withdrawn, with little or no activity or little response to the environment; and poor thinking skills (cognitive impairment).
