More evidence that avoiding delirium is good

The longer they’re delirious, the more likely they will have cognitive impairment further down the line.

A recent (late last year) study, BRAIN-ICUdelirium icu, shows that the 75% of patients with respiratory failure, or shock, on ICU that get delirium more than briefly, are the ones that have demonstrable problems 3 and 12 months later.
