Delirium Survey

Delirium Survey

Delirium Survey

Delirium is independently associated with increased mortality and morbidity in critical care units (CCU). 30 - 82% of ventilated patients develop delirium in CCU with survivors suffering from disabling neurocognitive deficits (up to 1 in 4 survivors). Delirium is associated with smaller brain volumes on magnetic resonance imaging at 3 months and long-term cognitive impairment up to 12 months. It costs £12,000 to 50,000 to manage a delirium episode in critical care.

Staff at the University Hospitals Birmingham are working up towards a research project aiming at prevention of delirium in CCU`s. As a part of the work and to ask the appropriate question we would like to ascertain the national and international practice in managing delirium and it subtypes. It would take 3-4 minutes on average  to complete this survey.
