Modifiable Risk Factors for Delirium in Critically Ill Trauma Patients: A Multicenter Prospective Study. J Intensive Care Med. 2019 Apr;34(4):330-336. PMID: 28335673.
OBJECTIVE: Intensive care unit (ICU)-acquired delirium has been associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Prevention strategies including modification of delirium risk factors are emphasized by practice guidelines. No study has specifically evaluated modifiable delirium risk factors in trauma ICU patients. Our goal was to evaluate modifiable risk factors for delirium among trauma patients admitted to the ICU.
OBJECTIVES: To determine risk factors and outcomes associated with delirium in PICU patients.
DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study.
SETTING: Thirty-two-bed PICU within a tertiary care academic children’s hospital.
