CONTEXT Delirium is a common and serious complication in elderly patients. Evidence suggests that delirium is associated with long-term poor outcome but delirium often occurs in individuals with more severe underlying disease. OBJECTIVE To assess the association between delirium in elderly patients and long-term poor outcome, defined as mortality, institutionalization, or dementia, while controlling for important confounders. DATA SOURCES A systematic search of studies published between… Expand

Prophylaxis with Antipsychotic Medication Reduces the Risk of Post-Operative Delirium in Elderly Patients: A Meta-Analysis
TLDR
This review examined whether delirium in at-risk patients can be prevented with antipsychotic prophylaxis in the inpatient setting with results that indicated that it could be prevented. Expand
Association of Delirium With Long-term Cognitive Decline: A Meta-analysis.
TLDR
There was a significant association between delirium and long-term cognitive decline, as the estimated effect size (Hedges g) for 23 studies was 0.45 (95% CI, 0.34-0.57) and more specialized subgroup and meta-regressions were consistent with predictions that suggested thatDelirium may be a causative factor in cognitive decline. Expand
Dementia as a predictor of morbidity and mortality in patients with delirium.
TLDR
Patients with dementia had significantly lower functional and cognitive scores and their risk of institutionalisation post-delirium was higher than patients without dementia, and the overall one-year mortality was high. Expand
Prophylaxis with antipsychotic medication reduces the risk of post-operative delirium in elderly patients: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
It is suggested that perioperative use of prophylactic antipsychotic medication may effectively reduce the overall risk of postoperative delirium in elderly patients. Expand
Delirium superimposed on dementia is associated with prolonged length of stay and poor outcomes in hospitalized older adults.
TLDR
Interventions to increase early detection of delirium have the potential to decrease the severity and duration ofDelirium and to prevent unnecessary suffering and costs from the complications of delIRium and unnecessary readmissions to the hospital. Expand
Delirium in older patients with COVID-19: prevalence, risk factors and clinical relevance.
TLDR
Delirium was a prevalent condition in older people admitted with COVID-19 and pre-existing cognitive impairment was its main risk factor and was associated with higher in-hospital mortality, highlighting the importance of early recognition of delirium. Expand
Delirium is associated with an increased morbidity and in-hospital mortality in cancer patients: Results from a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Systematically categorizing predisposing and precipitating factors might yield new strategies for preventing and managing delirium in cancer patients, and increase the mortality risk of delirious patients. Expand
Dementia and delirium, the outcomes in elderly hip fracture patients
TLDR
Elderly patients with a hip fracture are vulnerable for Delirium, especially when the patient has dementia, and patients who underwent an episode of delirium were at increased risk for adverse outcomes. Expand
The neuropsychological sequelae of delirium in elderly patients with hip fracture three months after hospital discharge
TLDR
The results suggest that inattention, as a cardinal sign of persistent delirium or depressive symptomatology at follow-up, cannot fully account for the poor cognitive outcome associated with deliria. Expand
Outcome of delirium in critically ill patients: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Nearly a third of patients admitted to an intensive care unit develop delirium, and these patients are at increased risk of dying during admission, longer stays in hospital, and cognitive impairment after discharge. Expand

Persistent delirium in older hospital patients: a systematic review of frequency and prognosis.
TLDR
PerD in older hospital patients is frequent, appears to be associated with adverse outcomes and may account for the poor prognosis of delirium in this population, which has potentially important implications for clinical practice and research. Expand
Delirium: A predictor of mortality in the elderly
TLDR
Delirium was found to be an independent marker for mortality in older medical patients over a three-month follow-up in a cohort of 171 inpatients aged over 65 years. Expand

TLDR
The risk of dementia or MCI at follow-up is more than doubled in elderly hip-surgery patients with postoperative delirium compared with patients withoutdelirium. Expand

TLDR
Delirium appears to be an important marker of risk for dementia and death, even in older people without prior cognitive or functional impairment. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that the occurrence of post-operative delirium in cognitively unimpaired elderly subjects is associated with a worse cognitive outcome and an increased risk of dementia. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that delirium is a common disorder that may be substantially less transient than currently believed and that incomplete manifestations of the syndrome may be frequent. Expand

TLDR
Demented patients who experiencedDelirium during hospitalization had a more than twofold increased risk of mortality in the 12 months following discharge than did patients with dementia alone, with delirium alone, or with neither dementia nor delirity. Expand

TLDR
Delirium is common in medical in-patients and has serious adverse effects on mortality, functional outcomes, LOS and institutionalisation. Expand
Delirium predicts 12-month mortality.
TLDR
Delirium is an independent marker for increased mortality among older medical inpatients during the 12 months after hospital admission and is a particularly important prognostic marker among patients without dementia. Expand

TLDR
Patients who experiencedDelirium during hospitalization had a 62% increased risk of mortality and lost an average of 13% of a year of life compared with patients without delirium. Expand
