Delirium Severity Post-Surgery and its Relationship with Long-Term Cognitive Decline

Dr. Sharon Inouye has co-authored a paper about the correlation between post-surgical delirium severity and the rate of long-term cognitive decline. Patients with the highest levels of delirium severity experienced the greatest rate of cognitive decline, even greater than that observed in patients with dementia, according to this study published on November 28, 2017 in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
