Delirium has a significant impact on the medical, functional, and cognitive outcomes of older patients. Treatment of delirium can be quite complex and requires individualized patient assessment, plan of care, and empirical treatment. In light of the difficulties associated with delirium treatment and the complexity and frequent inadequacy of nonpharmacologic… Expand
Antipsychotic Drugs in Prevention of Postoperative Delirium—What Is Known in 2020?
TLDR
It seems impossible to make strong recommendations for using antipsychotic drugs in prophylaxis based on the available data, and further research should answer the question what, if any, benefit patients receive from the pharmacological prevention of delirium, and which agents should be used. Expand
Pharmacological Prevention of Postoperative Delirium: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
Among the pharmacological prophylactic measures for postoperative delirium, dexmedetomidine, olanzapine, and risperidone showed higher efficacy than other drugs, however, more high-quality evidence is needed to confirm these results. Expand
Haloperidol prophylaxis for preventing aggravation of postoperative delirium in elderly patients: a randomized, open-label prospective trial
TLDR
The prophylactic administration of haloperidol at the early stage of delirium significantly reduced the incidence of severe postoperativedelirium in elderly patients. Expand
Pharmacological interventions for prevention and management of delirium in intensive care patients: a systematic overview of reviews and meta-analyses
TLDR
The evidence for the use of pharmacological interventions for prevention or management of delirium is poor or sparse and a systematic review with low risk of bias is urgently needed. Expand
Prevention and Treatment of Postoperative Delirium and Postoperative Cognitive Dysfunction
TLDR
Patients with POD at 1 week after surgery had greater difficulty returning to work and tended to receive social transfer payments, whereas those with POCD at 3 months after surgery were associated with increased mortality and prevention and treatment are focused on. Expand
Delirium and Dementia in Older People: A Complex Link
TLDR
In older people, the accurate diagnosis of delirium is often hampered by subjective and objective ambiguities, including lack of medical history and informants, changes in person’s surroundings, sensory deprivation, as well as their potential comorbidities and polypharmacy. Expand
European Society of Anaesthesiology evidence-based and consensus-based guideline on postoperative delirium
TLDR
This guideline is aimed to promote knowledge and education in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative setting not only among anaesthesiologists but also among all other healthcare professionals involved in the care of surgical patients. Expand
Perioperative interventions and postoperative outcomes
Background: Postoperative complications are frequent causes of postoperative mortality. Such complications may also lead to a prolonged period with decreased functional and cognitive status.Expand

TLDR
Administration of SSRIs before starting antiviral treatment reduces the incidence of interferon-induced depression with a relatively moderate prophylactic impact and good tolerability. Expand
Geriatric Anesthesia-related Morbidity and Mortality in China: Current Status and Trend
TLDR
Anesthesiologists should evaluate the physiological and medical status and focus on the prevention of potential complications in the perioperative setting with the goal to enhance elderly patients’ long-term well-being and survival quality. Expand

Postoperative delirium: a 76-year-old woman with delirium following surgery.
TLDR
Successful strategies for prevention and treatment of delirium include proactive multifactorial intervention targeted to reversible risk factors, limiting use of sedating medications, effective management of postoperative pain, and, perhaps, judicious use of antipsychotics. Expand
Haloperidol prophylaxis in critically ill patients with a high risk for delirium
TLDR
It is suggested that prophylactic treatment with low dose haloperidol in critically ill patients with a high risk for delirium probably has beneficial effects and warrant confirmation in a randomized controlled trial. Expand
Donepezil in the prevention and treatment of post-surgical delirium.
TLDR
This pilot study was unable to demonstrate a benefit for donepezil in preventing or treating delirium in a relatively young and cognitively-intact group of elderly patients undergoing elective orthopedic surgery. Expand
Administration of olanzapine to prevent postoperative delirium in elderly joint-replacement patients: a randomized, controlled trial.
TLDR
Findings suggest that olanzapine prophylaxis of postoperative delirium may be an effective strategy. Expand
Rivastigmine for the prevention of postoperative delirium in elderly patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery—A randomized controlled trial*
TLDR
This negative or, because of methodologic issues, possibly failed trial does not support short-term prophylactic administration of oral rivastigmine to prevent postoperative delirium in elderly patients undergoing elective cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. Expand
Efficacy of Risperidone for Prevention of Postoperative Delirium in Cardiac Surgery
TLDR
A single dose of risperidone administered soon after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass reduces the incidence of postoperative delirium, but only the time from opening eyes to following commands and postoperative respiratory failure were independent risk factors in this study. Expand
Melatonin for treatment and prevention of postoperative delirium.
TLDR
The successful use of melatonin is reported in treating severe postoperative delirium unresponsive to antipsychotics or benzodiazepines in one patient and in another patient with a history of postoperativeDelirium, where melatonin was used to treat and prevent postoperativedelirium. Expand
