Primary objective: The Delirium Diagnostic Tool–Provisional (DDT-Pro) is a newly developed provisional diagnostic tool for delirium presented here. This study evaluated its accuracy and validity in a population of participants with acquired brain injury (ABI). Research design: Cross-sectional study. Methods: Thirty-six patients with ABI, including traumatic brain injury (TBI; n = 29) and intraparenchymal haemorrhage (ICH; n = 7) were assessed at admission to inpatient rehabilitation using the… Expand
Comparison of diagnostic classification systems for delirium with new research criteria that incorporate the three core domains.
TLDR
TMF research diagnostic criteria performed well, with more balanced sensitivity and specificity and the highest likelihood ratio for delirium identification, and may have advantages in biological research where delineation of this syndrome is important. Expand
Validation of the Delirium Diagnostic Tool-Provisional (DDT-Pro) in a skilled nursing facility and comparison to the 4 'A's test (4AT).
TLDR
DDT-Pro is valid to detect delirium in SNF population where simple, structured tools with high sensitivity are needed and may have advantages over the 4AT. Expand
Delirium diagnostic tool-provisional (DDT-Pro) scores in delirium, subsyndromal delirium and no delirium.
TLDR
All DDT-Pro items, which represent the three delirium core domains, are important for SSD diagnosis and patients scoring in the SSD 6-7 range have significant clinical and prognostic features and deserve clinical attention. Expand
Delirium Phenotype by Age and Sex in a Pooled Data Set of Adult Patients.
TLDR
A two-factor structure for delirium phenomenology, regardless of age and sex, was confirmed, with few significant differences between etiological groups. Expand
A longitudinal study of delirium phenomenology indicates widespread neural dysfunction
TLDR
Attention is disproportionately impaired during the entire episode ofdelirium, consistent with thalamic dysfunction underlying both an impaired state of consciousness and well-known EEG slowing, which supports a consistent state of impaired higher cortical functions throughout an episode of delirium. Expand
Three core domains of delirium validated using exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses.
TLDR
The authors' EFA and CFA confirm and validate the proposed three-core domains of delirium, where symptoms were highly related to the domain that they were hypothesized to represent, and should be considered necessary to assess whether in clinical or research settings. Expand
Phenotype of subsyndromal delirium using pooled multicultural Delirium Rating Scale--Revised-98 data.
TLDR
SSD is intermediate in severity between nondelirious controls and full syndromal delirium, but its phenotype is more like delirial, and possible inclusion in DSM-V. Expand
Screening for delirium in the emergency department: a systematic review.
TLDR
Study results indicate that several delirium screening tools have been used in investigations in the ED, though validation of these instruments for this particular environment has been minimal to date and the ideal interval(s) during which a delIRium screening process should take place has yet to be determined. Expand
Delirium Screening: A Systematic Review of Delirium Screening Tools in Hospitalized Patients.
TLDR
To evaluate validation studies of delirium screening tools in non-critically ill hospital inpatients and provide guidance on the choice of screening tool, a systematic review of studies conducted across a broad range of inpatient settings internationally in elderly inpat patients was conducted. Expand
The diagnosis and management of delirium in infancy.
TLDR
Although randomized placebo controlled studies are needed to better characterize the indications, risks, and benefits, these atypical antipsychotic medications appeared to be effective and safe for managing delirium symptoms in very young pediatric patients. Expand

Multidimensional assessment of acute confusion after traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The CAP is a brief, structured, repeatable measure of multiple neurobehavioral aspects of posttraumatic confusional state (PTCS), and contributed to prediction of outcome at rehabilitation discharge after adjustment for other potential predictors. Expand
Factor analysis of the Colombian translation of the Delirium Rating Scale (DRS), Revised-98.
TLDR
The DRS-R-98 has good construct validity in this Latino population and may correspond to Cognition and Psychosis/Agitation factors. Expand
Validity of the confusion assessment method in detecting postoperative delirium in the elderly.
TLDR
It is concluded that the sensitivity of markers for delirium, such as the CAM and health record documentation, is dependent on the training background of the operator. Expand
Acute confusion following traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Findings indicate that delirium is common among neuro-rehabilitation admissions with TBI, and use of a single measure will result in poor characterization of the multi-faceted symptom complex shown by patients with post-traumatic confusion. Expand
Validation of the Delirium Rating Scale-revised-98: comparison with the delirium rating scale and the cognitive test for delirium.
TLDR
The DRS-R-98 is a valid measure of delirium severity over a broad range of symptoms and is a useful diagnostic and assessment tool that is ideal for longitudinal studies. Expand
Validation of a cognitive test for delirium in medical ICU patients.
TLDR
Early identification of delirium with the Cognitive Test for Delirium may lead to timely treatment of specific etiologic conditions and a reduction in mortality and morbidity. Expand
Use of the cognitive test for delirium in patients with traumatic brain injury.
TLDR
The results suggest that the Cognitive Test for Delirium provides an acceptable level of differentiation between delirious and nondelirious patients with traumatic brain injury. Expand
Prospective comparison of acute confusion severity with duration of post-traumatic amnesia in predicting employment outcome after traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Age, education and DelRS-R98 were significant predictors accounting for 34% of outcome variance, and severity of acute confusion makes a unique contribution to predicting late outcome after TBI. Expand
Phenomenology of delirium
TLDR
Sleep-wake cycle abnormalities and inattention were most frequent, while disorientation was the least frequent cognitive deficit, and comprehension correlated most closely with non-cognitive features of delirium. Expand
Reliable serial measurement of cognitive processes in rehabilitation: the Cognitive Log.
TLDR
The Cog-Log appears to be a reliable and efficient tool for measuring ongoing neurocognitive recovery during inpatient rehabilitation as shown by its relationship to standard neuropsychologic measures. Expand
