Incidence of Delirium in Hip Fracture Patients Randomized to Regular Hypnotics vs Placebo
To examine the influence of regular hypnotic therapy on the incidence of delirium after hip fracture surgery
Delirium is prevalent after hip fracture surgery. Delirium has been linked to postoperative sleep disturbances. Zolpidem is a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic that preserves REM sleep. The present study investigates the incidence of delirium in hip fracture patients randomized to Zolpidem treatment 5 mg vs placebo in the perioperative phase.
