Impact of Non-pharmacological Prevention Measures on the Incidence of Delirium in Adult Intensive Care Units (DELIREA)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

Brief Summary:

The main objective is to evaluate the impact of the "bundle of actions" on the delirium's incidence in resuscitation patients during their stay in the service, compared to a conventional treatment.

The investigators therefore hypothesize that a set of coordinated paramedical actions in the prevention of delirium would reduce its incidence by 15% compared to conventional care.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Delirium Other: Bundle Other: Standard Paramedical and Medical practices Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
The "Bundle of Actions" is a coordinated and specific action plan, which has already been validated, focusing on the coordination of wake-up and respiration, the management of delirium, as well as the early mobility of the patient. Innovation consists of simple, reproducible nursing care that reduces triggers of delirium; as well as the use of two new approaches in reanimation: conversational hypnosis and early and comprehensive re-empowerment of the patient in the management of his pain and well-being.

Experimental: Bundle
Specific action plan : ABCDE, complemented with care related to the nursing and paramedical role concerning the patient's environmental factors
Other: Bundle

Awakening and Breathing Coordination Delirium monitoring and management (detection and management of delirium) Early mobility

Factors of environment:

  • thirst
  • noise
  • pain and well-being
  • sleep
  • isolation
Other Name: ABCDE

Standard paramedical and medical practices
Other: Standard Paramedical and Medical practices

The current recommendations recommend the following scheme:

  • Identification and correction of an organic cause / factors (sepsis, metabolic disorders, withdrawal syndrome, pain)
  • Use of non-pharmacological means (early mobilization, correction of sensory deficits, temporo-spatial reorientation strategies)
  • Use of reference antipsychotic pharmacological means

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence rate of delirium [ Time Frame: Day 60 ]
    CAM-ICU Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (CAM-ICU) scale.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Duration of the delirium between the diagnosis and the resolution of the delirium [ Time Frame: Day 60 ]
    The duration of the delirium (in days) between the diagnosis and the resolution of the delirium will be done until 60 days of the stay of the patients in intensive care.

  2. Evaluation of cognitive and psycho-behavioral functions. [ Time Frame: Day 60 and month 3 ]

    Cognitive and psycho-behavioral functions are usually evaluated by a corpus of test :

    • memory : Test of 5 words and Free Recall Test
    • executive : Fast Evaluation Battery for Executive Functions, Trail Making Test, Digit Span, Stroop and Verbal Fluences and Animals
    • praxis : Mahieux's Test
    • language : D0 80
    • behavior : Montgomery's scale (depression), Starkstein's scale (apathy).

  3. Quality of life at one year [ Time Frame: Year 1 ]

    The evaluation of 142 first patients delirium positive: the first 12 patients delirium positive in the 6 centers of the arm to which Toulouse will not belong, and the first 14 patients delirium positive in the 5 centers of the arm to which Toulouse will belong (Toulouse excluded), 1 year after the date of their inclusion in the study during their hospitalization in reanimation service.

    This evaluation of Quality of life of the first patients detected positive to delirium will be carried out using the validated French standardized questionnaire or Short Form 36 item (SF-36) which will be sent by post to the patient's home.
