Delirium: Prevention, Symptoms and Treatment 1st Edition


This book is a comprehensive, contemporary examination of a single psychiatric illness, delirium, which has significant implications for all areas of medical practice. Given the increasing age of the population as well as the associated increased risk of a major neurocognitive disorder (formerly dementia), which is the major risk factor for delirium, such a book on the complexities of delirium is timely and needed; there is currently no clinical guidebook for the assessment and management of delirium. Delirium is seen in all medical settings, though the risk is higher in the ICU, medical/surgical wards, and the emergency department. The authors also take various approaches to the problem of delirium. Specific to this book are several chapters devoted to special topics in delirium: Pediatric Delirium, Psychiatric Disorders, Treatments, and Their Association with Delirium, Delirium Associated with Alcohol Use, Neuropsychological Assessment of Delirium in Older Adults, The Role of the Pharmacist in the Assessment and Management of Medication Induced Delirium, and Delirium and Legal Issues. These are areas often not emphasized in delirium management. The authors hope that clinicians facing the daily challenges of delirium assessment and management will find this volume helpful in their daily work. The authors especially hope that students and resident trainees in all of the major healthcare disciplines find this volume useful in their own learning to master this ubiquitous, medically serious, and often challenging condition. Delirium is clearly “everyone’s problem”, and not just the concern of certain medical specialists.
