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
      Cognitive impairment is a significant health problem for the elderly and is associated with severe negative consequences: higher morbidity and mortality and a diminished capacity to care for self. The accurate diagnosis of acute confusion, dementia, and depression depends on the routine, systematic, and comprehensive assessment of cognition, best achieved through the use of a mental status questionnaire and a behavioral rating scale. Nonspecific clinical features, atypical and variable presentations of symptomatology, and the frequent coexistence of acute confusion, dementia, and depression make an accurate diagnosis of the specific form of cognitive impairment difficult. The primary cognition disorder in acute confusion is that of attention, memory with dementia, and mood with depression.

    • Abstract
      The prevalence, associated conditions and outcome of delirium were studied in a consecutive series of 184 patients admitted with acute illness to a department of health care of the elderly. Forty of these elderly subjects (22 per cent) met Diagnostic and Statistical Manual version 3 (revised) criteria for delirium. Screening for delirious patients using the abbreviated mental test on admission gave a high sensitivity (92 per cent). The conditions most commonly associated with delirium were infection and stroke. Onset of acute illness of less than 15 days, a reported history of dementia or recent confusion, and presence of a definite site of infection were much more likely in those with delirium. Serial use of the abbreviated mental test was a sensitive means of distinguishing delirious from other patients and may be useful in both the clinical and research setting. Delirious patients had more serious pre-existing disease than non-delirious patients. They had a higher number of admissions during the 2 years prior to the index admission, a higher mortality rate and a higher rate of transfer to long-stay care than other patients, but no difference in duration of admission. All acutely ill elderly people should undergo an abbreviated mental test on admission, and if abnormal, this should be repeated as it will aid detection of delirium.

    • Abstract
      We evaluated the occurrence and persistence of delirium in 325 elderly patients admitted to a teaching hospital from either a defined community or a long-term care facility. Of the study participants, 34 (10.5%) had Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Third Edition--defined delirium at initial evaluation; of the remaining patients, 91 (31.3%) developed new-onset delirium. An additional 110 patients also experienced individual symptoms of delirium without meeting full criteria. Preexisting cognitive impairment and advanced age were associated with increased risk of incident delirium in the community sample but not the institutional one. Delirium was not associated with an increased risk of mortality, but it was associated with a prolonged hospital stay and an increased risk of institutional placement among community-dwelling elderly. Only five patients (4%) experienced resolution of all new symptoms of delirium before hospital discharge, and only 20.8% and 17.7%, respectively, had resolution of all new symptoms by 3 and 6 months after hospital discharge. These data suggest that delirium is a common disorder that may be substantially less transient than currently believed and that incomplete manifestations of the syndrome may be frequent.
