Delirium: The Under-Recognized Medical Emergency

Despite its prevalence, delirium often goes unrecognized. Documenting two episodes of delirium – one in a patient with no underlying cognitive impairment, and one with some signs of memory loss – this DVD identifies the 4 key elements of the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) for assessing delirium. The DVD also explains Delirium Superimposed with Dementia (DSD), distinguishes between hyperactive, hypoactive, and mixed delirium, and documents the factors that increase risks for delirium. (Part of a 28-DVD training series.)
