Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Pain, Agitation, and Delirium in Adult Patients in the Intensive Care Unit.
The article describes best practices for the identification, prevention, and treatment of delirium in the ICU. Recommendations include pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic strategies, including evidence-based recommendations for the use of antipsychotics as well as mobilization and sedation practices.
This practical tool identifies not only the prescription and over-the-counter medications themselves but classifies them by the severity of their anticholinergic effects on cognition. It also suggests safer alternative medications.
The American Delirium Society fosters research, education, quality improvement, advocacy & implementation science to minimize the impact of delirium on short- and long-term health and well being of patients.
The American Delirium Society is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
