Delirium Bibliography

**The Delirium Bibliography is moving!**

 

We're excited to announce that the Delirium Bibliography has been moved to the Network for Investigation of Delirium: Unifying Scientists (NIDUS) website! The new bibliography includes well over 3,000 references on delirium and acute care for elders in addition to new references on pediatric delirium, as well. Articles in the new bibliography are still indexed by keywords taken from MEDLINE and other relevant databases, and they can be easily browsed with a search function. Questions? Email margaretwebb@hsl.harvard.edu

The searchable delirium bibliography page is one of our most popular features, allowing you to quickly gain access to the literature on delirium and acute care of older persons.  The HELP team keeps it updated for you on a monthly basis!  Feel free to search by author, title, keywords. It is primarily intended for clinicians and researchers interested in exploring these topics.

Each article is indexed by keywords taken from MEDLINE and other relevant databases.

You may base your search on as many search terms as you like. A search term can be a keyword, an author's name, all or part of an article's title, or any word or phrase that you might expect to find in an article's abstract. You may then indicate whether you would like to limit the search to one or more options.

The results are prioritized so that entries including all search terms will be listed first, but you can indicate whether to then sort by title (the default), by author, by journal name or by publication year.

You may further restrict to a topic category. Note: If you do not enter any search terms, the results will include all of the entries for the selected topic category.

More information about each entry on this page is available by moving the mouse over the green information symbols.

Please note that Pub Med Central (PMC) full text links are provided wherever available.  However, due to copyright restrictions, only abstracts can be provided for articles not available in PMC.

    • Abstract
      Delirium is a common and distressing symptom that constitutes a significant challenge for end-of-life care. However, reliable techniques are available for the diagnosis of delirium, and effective therapies exist as well. This consensus paper uses a case-based format that begins with an overview of the definition and presentation of delirium. Next, strategies for diagnosis are suggested, with attention to the unique challenges that clinicians face in pursuing a diagnostic work-up for patients near the end of life. The paper concludes with a review of therapeutic options.

    • Abstract
      This study has tested the validity and reliability of the Portuguese version of the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM), a diagnostic assessment instrument for delirium developed by Inouye et al. (1990). The sample was formed by 100 patients with 60 and more years of age, admitted at the emergency service of Santa Casa de São Paulo, in the time periods between July and August, 1996, November and December, 1996 and February and March, 1997. The sensibility was 94.1% and specificity 96.4%. The assessors reliability in a sample of the 24 patients resulted in a kappa = 0.70. We have concluded that CAM is an adequate instrument to assess the presence of delirium, reliable to assess elderly patients at the emergency services.

    • Abstract
      Delirium is a common and potentially preventable and reversible cause of functional disability, morbidity, mortality, and increased health care use among elderly individuals. Much has been learned about delirium in the past decade. Highlighted in this article are recent advances in the diagnosis of delirium, delirium in long-term care, use of health care resources, outcomes of delirium, etiologies, and interventions to prevent and treat delirium. Suggestions for future research also are proposed.

    • Abstract
      Some clinical signs of the intensive care unit (ICU) syndrome/delirium are probably known, but there may be additional signs that can be observed during the care of ICU patients. The aim of this study was to investigate and describe the clinical signs of the ICU syndrome in relation to patients' reactions and behaviour following the second day of their stay in an ICU. A total of 31 patients were observed during the weaning process and in the days following extubation. Informal dialogues between the patient and the observer, using parts of the questionnaire 'Organic Brain Syndrome Scale' were also carried out. The data was structured in a chronological order and consists of descriptions of patients' behaviour and reactions, together with events, occurrences and environmental circumstances. It was found that the patients showed a great variety of clinical signs that could be related to the ICU syndrome. Such signs were the quality, ability and divergence of speech; talking, movements, bodily position and facial expressions. Several patients also related unreal experiences only occasionally, while others experienced them during longer periods. The clinical signs did not seem to be separate phenomena but were inter-connected and part of a progression, and, therefore must be seen in the overall context and situation. Longer periods of observation and repeated interaction with patients are necessary in order to be aware of onset and clinical signs of the ICU syndrome.
