Post-operative delirium in Cardiac Surgery
Intra-operative events during cardiac surgery are risk factors for the development of delirium in the ICU
After cardiac surgery, 26 % of patients developed delirium during their ICU stay.
Patients with and without delirium differed significantly in intra-operative variables, post-operative laboratory parameters and the use of ICU resources.
Intra-operative events such as transfusions of blood products are likely to promote post-operative delirium in the ICU.
