OBJECTIVES We aimed to find the association of inflammation and respiratory failure with delirium in COVID-19 patients. We compare the inflammatory and arterial blood gas markers between patients with COVID-19 delirium and delirium in other medical disorders. METHODS This cross-sectional study used the CHART-DEL, a validated research tool, to screen patients for delirium retrospectively from clinical notes. Inflammatory markers C-reactive protein (CRP) and white cell count (WBC), and the… 


Correlation of refractory hypoxemia with biochemical markers and clinical outcomes of COVID-19 patients in a developing country: A retrospective observational study
Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte ratio, C-reactive protein, and Lactate dehydrogenase were effective biomarkers in predicting a severe course of COVID-19, but could not establish significant associations of serum Ferritin, Procalcitonin, and D-Dimer.
Delirium and Mortality in Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) – A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
The presence of delirium is associated with increased risk of mortality in hospitalized older adults with COVID-19, and meta-regression indicates that the association betweenDelirium and mortality were not significantly influenced by study-level variations in age, sex, hypertension, diabetes, and dementia.
The impact of delirium on outcomes for older adults hospitalised with COVID-19
Delirium is common in older patients with COVID-19 and strongly associated with in-hospital mortality and Regardless of causation, either due to a direct effect of SARS-COV-2 on the CNS or to a multifactorial cause, delirium should be interpreted as an alarming prognostic indicator in older people.
Prevalence and prognostic value of Delirium as the initial presentation of COVID-19 in the elderly with dementia: An Italian retrospective study
A retrospective single-centre study conducted during the outbreak peak in a Lombard dementia facility, including 59 elderly subjects with dementia and laboratory-confirmed COVID-19, finding delirium occurrence in the elderly with dementia deserves special attention, especially in the presence of lymphopenia.
Prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of delirium in older adults with COVID-19. Literature review
Delirium is a frequent neurological manifestation in OA with COVID-19 and requires early identification, as well as the implementation of non-pharmacological and pharmacological treatment strategies, which may reduce the associated morbidity and mortality in this age group.
Meta-analysis of coagulation parameters associated with disease severity and poor prognosis of COVID-19
The notion that coagulopathy could be considered as a risk factor for disease severity and mortality of COVID-19, which may help clinicians to identify the incidence of poor outcomes in patients with 2019 Corona Virus Disease, is supported.
Cytokine elevation in severe and critical COVID-19: a rapid systematic review, meta-analysis, and comparison with other inflammatory syndromes
The findings question the role of a cytokine storm in COVID-19-induced organ dysfunction and the potential role of anti-cytokine and immune-modulating treatments in patients with the disease.
Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes of 821 Older Patients With SARS-Cov-2 Infection Admitted to Acute Care Geriatric Wards
A quick bedside evaluation at admission of sex, functional status, systolic arterial pressure, consciousness, respiratory rate, and asthenia can identify older patients at risk of unfavorable outcomes.
Lymphopenia in severe coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19): systematic review and meta-analysis
A systematic review and meta-analysis showed that lymphopenia on admission was associated with poor outcome in patients with COVID-19 and the association between lymphocyte count and composite poor outcome was affected by age.
Functional and cognitive outcomes after COVID-19 delirium
The findings indicate that delirium is common, yet under-recognised, and associated with functional impairments in the medium term, which is significant in patients with COVID-19.
