  Purpose

Recently our ICU research group developed and validated a delirium prediction model in the NetherlandsThis. This model has a high predictive value. We want to examine what the predictive value is in ICUs of other European countries.


Condition
Delirium

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • delirium [ Time Frame: during admission at the critical care ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Delirium is defined as at minimum one positive CAM-ICU screening during the complete ICU stay


Enrollment: 2000
Study Start Date: November 2011
Study Completion Date: August 2012
Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
delirious patients
The cohort is divided in delirious and non-delirious patients

Detailed Description:

Delirium is a serious and common disorder in ICU patients. It is increasingly recognized that screening of ICU patients is a valuable tool for early detection and treatment of delirium, which may reduce its incidence, severity and duration. Apart from treatment of delirium, delirium prevention (pharmacological and nursing interventions)is an important issue. However, it is time consuming to take preventive measures in all ICU patients. The recently developed prediction model facilitates the conduct of preventive measures focused on high risk groups. This prediction model is developed and validated in the Netherlands. The aim of our study is to investigate the predictive value of the model in ICUs in other countries.
