A dideoxynucleoside compound in which the 3'-hydroxy group on the sugar moiety has been replaced by an azido group. This modification prevents the formation of phosphodiester linkages which are needed for the completion of nucleic acid chains. The compound is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication, acting as a chain-terminator of viral DNA during reverse transcription. It improves immunologic function, partially reverses the HIV-induced neurological dysfunction, and improves certain other clinical abnormalities associated with AIDS. Its principal toxic effect is dose-dependent suppression of bone marrow, resulting in anemia and leukopenia.

Confusional state in stroke: relation to preexisting dementia, patient characteristics, and outcome. (1/237)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Acute confusional state (ACS) is frequent in hospitalized stroke patients. We previously showed that 16% of patients admitted for a stroke have preexisting dementia. The extent to which preexisting cognitive decline is associated with a risk of ACS at the acute stage of stroke remains to be systematically examined. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prevalence of ACS in acute stroke patients, to study the influence of preexisting cognitive decline and other patient characteristics, and to evaluate the influence of ACS on outcome. METHODS: We diagnosed ACS using DSM-IV criteria and the Delirium Rating Scale with a cutoff of 10 in 202 consecutive stroke patients aged 40 years or older (median age, 75 years; range, 42 to 101 years). Cognitive functioning before stroke was assessed with the Informant Questionnaire on Cognitive Decline in the Elderly. RESULTS: Forty-nine stroke patients (24.3%; 95% CI, 18.3% to 30.2%) had an ACS during hospitalization. Using logistic regression analysis, we found preexisting cognitive decline (P=0.006) and metabolic or infectious disorders (P=0.008) to be independent predictors of ACS. Functional, but not vital, prognosis was worse in patients with ACS at discharge and 6 months after stroke. CONCLUSIONS: ACS occurs in one fourth of stroke patients older than 40 years. Its occurrence requires inquiry for a preexisting cognitive decline, which usually remains unrecognized in the absence of a systematic evaluation.  (+info)

MR line scan diffusion imaging of the brain in children. (2/237)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: MR imaging of the self-diffusion of water has become increasingly popular for the early detection of cerebral infarction in adults. The purpose of this study was to evaluate MR line scan diffusion imaging (LSDI) of the brain in children. METHODS: LSDI was performed in four volunteers and 12 patients by using an effective TR/TE of 2736/89.4 and a maximum b value of 450 to 600 s/mm2 applied in the x, y, and z directions. In the volunteers, single-shot echo planar imaging of diffusion (EPID) was also performed. The patients (10 boys and two girls) ranged in age from 2 days to 16 years (average age, 6.6 years). Diagnoses included acute cerebral infarction, seizure disorder, posttraumatic confusion syndrome, complicated migraine, residual astrocytoma, encephalitis, hypoxia without cerebral infarction, cerebral contusion, and conversion disorder. In all patients, routine spin-echo images were also acquired. Trace images and apparent diffusion coefficient maps were produced for each location scanned with LSDI. RESULTS: In the volunteers, LSDI showed less chemical-shift and magnetic-susceptibility artifact and less geometric distortion than did EPID. LSDI was of diagnostic quality in all studies. Diffusion abnormalities were present in five patients. Restricted diffusion was present in the lesions of the three patients with acute cerebral infarction. Mildly increased diffusion was present in the lesions of encephalitis and residual cerebellar astrocytoma. No diffusion abnormalities were seen in the remaining seven children. CONCLUSION: LSDI is feasible in children, provides high-quality diffusion images with less chemical-shift and magnetic-susceptibility artifact and less geometric distortion than does EPID, and complements the routine MR examination.  (+info)

Postictal symptoms help distinguish patients with epileptic seizures from those with non-epileptic seizures. (3/237)

The aim of the study was to assess whether post-ictal symptoms can help distinguish patients who have epileptic seizures from those with non-epileptic seizures (NES). We reviewed the spontaneous responses to the question 'What symptoms do you have after a seizure?' in 16 patients with epileptic seizures (predominantly focal with secondary generalization or generalized tonic-clonic) and 23 NES patients. Six of the 16 patients (38%) vs. only one of 23 NES patients (4.3%) noted post-ictal headache (P = 0.008). Nine epilepsy patients (56%) vs. three NES patients (13%) reported post-ictal fatigue (P = 0.004). Confusion or other symptoms did not distinguish epilepsy patients from those with NES. All epilepsy patients had at least one post-ictal symptom while 12 NES patients (52%) had none (P = 0.001). Therefore, patients evaluated for epileptic vs. non-epileptic seizures who have post-ictal fatigue or headache, are more likely to have epileptic seizures. Patients with a diagnosis of NES who note post-ictal fatigue or headache should be investigated further.  (+info)

Topographical disorientation: a synthesis and taxonomy. (4/237)

Over the last century, several dozen case reports have presented 'topographically disoriented' patients who, in some cases, appear to have selectively lost their ability to find their way within large-scale, locomotor environments. A review is offered here that has as its aim the creation of a taxonomy that accurately reflects the behavioural impairments and neuroanatomical findings of this literature. This effort is guided by an appreciation of the models of normative way-finding offered by environmental psychology and recent neuroscience research. It is proposed that several varieties of topographical disorientation exist, resulting from damage to distinct neuroanatomical areas. The particular pattern of impairments that patients evidence is argued to be consonant with the known functions of these cortical regions and with recent neuroimaging results. The conflicting claims of previous reviews of this area are also considered and addressed.  (+info)

Medical complications associated with carotid endarterectomy. North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET) (5/237)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Carotid endarterectomy (CE) has been shown to be beneficial in patients with symptomatic high-grade (70% to 99%) internal carotid artery stenosis. To achieve this benefit, complications must be kept to a minimum. Complications not associated with the procedure itself, but related to medical conditions, have received little attention. METHODS: Medical complications that occurred within 30 days after CE were recorded in 1415 patients with symptomatic stenosis (30% to 99%) of the internal carotid artery. They were compared with 1433 patients who received medical care alone. All patients were in the North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET). RESULTS: One hundred fifteen patients (8.1%) had 142 medical complications: 14 (1%) myocardial infarctions, 101 (7.1%) other cardiovascular disorders, 11 (0.8%) respiratory complications, 6 (0.4%) transient confusions, and 10 (0.7%) other complications. Of the 142 complications, 69.7% were of short duration, and only 26.8% prolonged hospitalization. Five patients died: 3 from myocardial infarction and 2 suddenly. Medically treated patients experienced similar complications with one third the frequency. Endarterectomy was approximately 1.5 times more likely to trigger medical complications in patients with a history of myocardial infarction, angina, or hypertension (P<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Perioperative medical complications were observed in slightly fewer than 1 of every 10 patients who underwent CE. The majority of these complications completely resolved. Most complications were cardiovascular and occurred in patients with 1 or more cardiovascular risk factors. In this selected population, the occurrence of perioperative myocardial infarction was uncommon.  (+info)

A Phase I and pharmacokinetic study of TNP-470 administered weekly to patients with advanced cancer. (6/237)

A Phase I study of angiogenesis inhibitor TNP-470 was conducted in patients with advanced cancer. TNP-470 (25-235 mg/m2) was administered i.v. over 4 h once a week to patients who had solid tumors refractory to the best available treatment or with a high risk of recurrence and who had normal renal, hepatic, and hematological function and no evidence of coagulopathy. The aims of the study were to determine the maximum tolerated dose, dose-limiting toxicities (DLTs), and the pharmacokinetics of TNP-470 given on a once-weekly schedule. Thirty-six patients, ages 23-75 (median, 54 years), with an Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group performance status of 0-2 were treated. The number of patients at each dose level (mg/m2) were 6 (25), 3 (50), 3 (75), 3 (100), 3 (133), 12 (177), and 6 (235). The principal toxicities of TNP-470 were dizziness, lightheadedness, vertigo, ataxia, decrease in concentration and short-term memory, confusion, anxiety, and depression, which occurred at doses of 133, 177, and 235 mg/m2. Two patients treated at 235 mg/m2 experienced DLT in the form of grade III cerebellar neurotoxicity after 6 weeks of treatment. Overall, these neurological symptoms were dose-related, had an insidious onset, progressively worsened with treatment, and resolved completely within 2 weeks of stopping the drug. One patient with malignant melanoma had stabilization of the previously growing disease for 27 weeks while on the treatment. Two patients, one with adenocarcinoma of the colon and the other with a soft tissue sarcoma, had no clinically detectable disease but were at high risk for recurrence at the initiation of treatment and received 13 months and > 3 years of treatment, respectively, with no evidence of disease recurrence. The remaining patients had progression of their disease after 1-6 months of treatment. The mean plasma half-life (t(1/2)) of TNP-470 and its principal metabolite, AGM-1883, were extremely short (harmonic mean, t(1/2) of 2 and 6 min, respectively) with practically no drug detectable in the plasma by 60 min after the end of the infusion. MII, an inactive metabolite, had a considerably longer t(1/2) of approximately 2.6 h. Mean peak TNP-470 concentrations were > or = 400 ng/ml at doses > or = 177 mg/m2. On the basis of this study, the maximum tolerated dose of TNP-470 administered on a weekly schedule was 177 mg/m2 given i.v over 4 h. The principal DLT was neurotoxicity, which appeared to be dose-related and was completely reversible. On the basis of the short plasma t(1/2) of TNP-470, exploration of a prolonged i.v. infusion schedule is warranted.  (+info)

Safety of air medical transportation after tissue plasminogen activator administration in acute ischemic stroke. (7/237)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We sought to determine the safety of air medical transport (AMT) of patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) immediately after or during administration of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). Patients with AIS treated with tPA in nonuniversity hospitals frequently need transfer to tertiary care centers that can provide specialized care. AMT is a widely available mode of transport that is crucial in providing expedient and quality health care to critically ill patients while assuring high level of care during transportation. The safety of AMT of patients with AIS after or during administration of tPA has not been examined. METHODS: We performed retrospective chart review of 24 patients with AIS who were treated with intravenous tPA and transferred by helicopter to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania or the University of Cincinnati Hospital. The charts were reviewed for neurological complications, systemic complications, and adherence to the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) protocol for AIS management. RESULTS: No major neurological or systemic complications occurred. Four patients had hypertension warranting treatment, 3 patients experienced motion sickness, 1 patient developed a transient confusional state, and 1 patient experienced minor systemic bleeding. Four NINDS protocol violations occurred, all related to blood pressure management. CONCLUSIONS: In this small series, AMT of AIS patients after thrombolysis was not associated with any major neurological or systemic complications. Flight crew education on the NINDS AIS protocol is essential in limiting the number of protocol violations. AMT of patients with AIS provides fast and safe access to tertiary centers that can provide state of the art stroke therapy.  (+info)

Resolution of disorientation and amnesia during post-traumatic amnesia. (8/237)

OBJECTIVES: Despite the growing number of instruments for the prospective measurement of post-traumatic amnesia (PTA) after traumatic brain injury, fundamental issues about the natural history of its resolution and methods of examination remain unresolved. The aims of the present study were to: (1) examine the sequence of resolution of disorientation and amnesia, and (2) determine if the method of measuring the memory component affected the duration of PTA. METHODS: The sample comprised 31 severely injured patients admitted to a brain injury rehabilitation unit who were examined daily until they emerged from PTA. They were administered a composite PTA scale, covering orientation and memory items from standard PTA scales. Patients were consecutively allocated to one of two groups according to the method of measuring the memory component. Each group was administered identical materials with a different procedure. RESULTS: The most common sequence for resolution of disorientation in both groups was person, followed by place, then time. Overall, amnesia resolved before disorientation in 94% of cases. Correlation coefficients between return of components of orientation and memory were all highly significant, ranging from r=0. 81 to 0.93. Significant variability occurred in the number of days to emerge from PTA according to the scale used. There was evidence that the method of measuring memory influenced the patient's capacity to consistently sustain criterion scores on the scale. CONCLUSIONS: These results are contrary to findings in mildly injured patients, in whom orientation usually returns before memory. They also demonstrate that the duration of PTA will be dictated by the method used. These findings raise validity issues with respect to the prospective measurement of PTA, and in particular determining when an individual patient has emerged from PTA, which require further investigation.  (+info)

The main aim of this study was to assess the reliability and validity of a Swedish translation of the NEECHAM Confusion Scale among 73 patients having surgery for hip fractures. Cronbachs alpha before and 7 days after surgery were .73 and .82, respectively. Principal-component analyses yielded three factors explaining 69% of the variance of the variables preoperatively and 73.6% of the variance 7 days postoperatively. Four months after discharge vital function, factor II in the NEECHAM scale, significantly predicted the total score on the Ferrons and Powers Quality of Life Index. Items reflecting information processing, behavior, and urinary continence, factor I, also predicted functional capacity, using the Standardized Practical Equipment test, a tool measuring instrumental daily activity. The scale seems to be a reliable and valid instrument for evaluating acute confusional state among patients with hip fracture.. ...

Silent focal ischemic mini infarcts in the brain are thought to cause no clinically overt symptoms. Some populations of hippocampal cells are particularly sensitive to ischemic events, however, rendering hippocampal functions especially vulnerable to ischemia-induced deficits. The present study investigated whether an otherwise silent ischemic mini infarct in the hippocampus (HPC) can produce impairments in spatial performance in rats. Spatial performance was assessed in the ziggurat task (ZT) using a 10-trial spatial learning protocol for four days prior to undergoing hippocampal ischemic lesion or sham surgery. Hippocampal silent ischemia was induced by infusion of endothelin-1 (ET-1), a potent vasoconstrictor, into either the dorsal or the ventral hippocampus (dHPC and vHPC). When tested postoperatively in the ZT using a standard testing protocol for eight days, rats with hippocampal lesions exhibited no spatial deficit. Although spatial learning and memory in the ZT were not affected by the ET-1
There was some confusion about smoking. Some had heard that smoking might protect people from dementia, while others were aware that vascular dementia could be caused by smoking. One family were surprised when the doctor suggested smoking was the cause of their fathers dementia since he only smoked a very occasional cigar and had not been known to smoke a cigarette in nearly 40 years.. Although searching for a cause can be helpful for some families, in most cases no single cause will ever be identified. It is likely that complex genetic factors play a part in susceptibility to dementia, and then lifestyle and environmental factors further modify the risk. The observed link between illness and onset of dementia may in some cases be explained by a delirium (or acute confusional state) secondary to the illness exposing some underlying cognitive impairment, or the early stages of dementia. Similarly, the link of onset of dementia with major life events may be explained by already present ...
This is the second part of our series on delirium in the hospital setting. Many of you who read last week s Patient Safety Tip of the Week Managing Delirium probably said to yourselves Sounds like the best way to manage delirium is to prevent it in the first place . So did we! It s interesting to see how we have evolved in our thinking in medicine over the years. We went back and looked at a chapter on neurological problems we had written in a geriatric textbook almost 20 years ago (Truax 1989). It was a short segment about diagnosing and treating delirium and acute confusional states in the geriatric population. Not much has actually changed about the diagnostic or therapeutic approach once delirium occurs but we didn t even mention prevention! Obviously what has to change is our approach to identifying patients at risk for delirium before they develop it so that we can prevent it all together.. ...
Hip fracture is a global and a growing public health problem. More women than men sustain hip fractures, the incidence increases exponentially with age and mean age is above 80. About one third of hip-fracture patients suffer from dementia and are prone to develop acute confusional state (delirium). Delirium is one of the most common complications after hip-fracture surgery, and seriously impacts on morbidity and mortality. Malnutrition is also common in hip-fracture patients and is associated with postoperative complications, such as delayed healing of the wound, infections and decubitus ulcers. Arthroplasty is usually preferred procedure in displaced femoral neck fractures but is, however, controversial in patients with dementia due to the fear of dislocation of the prosthesis.. The aims of this thesis are to identify risk factors for delirium and the impact of delirium on rehabilitation outcome, to evaluate whether a postoperative multi-factorial intervention program could reduce delirium, to ...
In the first case, a 45-year-old lady with a history of depression, was admitted to psychiatric services with an acute confusional state. Her symptoms persisted and she was transferred to a regional hospital. CT brain was normal, pelvic MRI revealed an ovarian mass and CSF serology was anti-NMDAR antibody positive. She had a bilateral salpingoophorectomy and hysterectomy with histology confirming a benign teratoma. She was treated with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) and steroids. She was subsequently transferred for complex specialist rehabilitation (CSR) for a programme of rehabilitation for persisting agitation and short term memory loss which were impacting on her activities (Admission Disability rating scale [DRS] 9 [moderately severe disability])8. On discharge, she was independent in activities of daily living (ADLs) with residual mild memory difficulties resulting in inability to return to work (Discharge DRS 2 [partial disability]).. In the second case, a 39-year-old female with no ...
The diagnosis of HE is based on presence of elevated antithyroid antibodies in patients with a compatible clinical presentation and exclusion of other causes of encephalopathy or acute confusional state (Box 1). Diagnosis requires presence of high titres of anti-thyroid peroxidase and/or anti-thyroglobulin antibodies, although this is not specific and there is no clear correlation between antibody titres and the severity of neurological symptoms [7]. The presence of anti-thyroid antibodies can sometimes be detected in normal individuals, though usually at lower titres. In some cases, presence of anti-neuronal antibodies has been noted [8]. Most patients have overt or subclinical hypothyroidism at the time of presentation, but can also be euthyroid at the time of diagnosis. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein are elevated in some patients [5]. In some aspects, Hashimoto encephalopathy resembles a heterogenous group of conditions, including Sjögren syndrome and systemic lupus ...
Of course, it might be argued that suicide intervention is justified in the case of people who are not rationally capable of making the decision to die - for instance, someone experiencing hallucinations, someone in an acute confusional state due to diabetes, or a small child (though we must be aware that people under the age of 18 and people with thought disorders and developmental disabilities still often respond to rational incentive structures, and setting up a structure that rewards them for harming themselves could itself be a cause of harm). There are two options that would at once remove the incentive for signal attempted suicides and protect incompetent people. One is to only allow intervention in a suicide attempt if there is reliable evidence - a judicial finding of incompetence, or underage status - that the attempter is incompetent. (Currently, the policy is to intervene in all cases, no matter what, even if reliable evidence of intent to die and competence is available.) A second ...
The symptoms did indeed get worse with stressful situations, but this was partly because those situations occurred whilst standing-such as presenting patients on the morning ward round. This had been a factor in stopping work, because there were problems with my word finding and memory. On reaching the patients bedside I found myself almost hallucinating in terms of palinopsia, purple haze and blotches, all of which was very distracting whilst trying to contribute to the ward round. It was impossible really to continue working without working life becoming a total humiliation. This did indeed lead to low self worth and anxiety. The low level acute confusional state, as I now see it, meant that I was functioning at a suboptimal level at work, for no clear reason, this then led naturally to anxiety and concern. It was then difficult for me to untangle my own symptoms from psychiatric ones. ...

The loss of conflicting information in a Petri net (PN), usually called confusions, leads to incomplete and faulty system behavior. Confusions, as an unfortunate phenomenon in discrete event systems modeled with Petri nets, are caused by the frequent interlacement of conflicting and concurrent transitions. In this paper, confusions are defined and investigated in bounded generalized PNs. A reasonable control strategy for conflicts and confusions in a PN is formulated by proposing elementary conflict resolution sequences (ECRSs) and a class of local synchronized Petri nets (LSPNs). Two control algorithms are reported to control the appeared confusions by generating a series of external events. Finally, an example of confusion analysis and control in an automated manufacturing system is presented.

Introduction: Hip fractures affect over 35,000 Canadians each year. Delirium, or acute confusion, occurs in up to 62% of patients following a hip fracture. Delirium substantially increases hospital length of stay and doubles the risk of nursing home admissions and death. The primary objective of this study was to identify risk factors independently associated with acute in-hospital delirium within 72 hours of emergency department (ED) arrival for patients diagnosed with a hip fracture. Methods: This was a retrospective chart review of patients aged 65 years and older presenting to one of two academic EDs with a discharge diagnosis of hip fracture from January 1st 2014 to December 31st 2015. Multivariable logistic regression analysis was used to determine variables independently associated with the development of acute in-hospital delirium within 72 hours of ED arrival. Results: Of the 668 included patients, mean (SD) age was 84.1 (8.0) years and 501 (75%) were female. 521 (78.0%) patients ...

Disorders of consciousness include coma (cannot be aroused, eye remain closed), vegetative state (can appear to be awake, but unable to purposefully interact), minimally conscious state (minimal but definite awareness), locked-in syndrome (not a disorder of consciousness, but because paralysis of limbs and facial muscles is unable to speak and/or appears to be unable to react) and post-traumatic confusional state (confusion and amnesia).
As for actual confusion, Rearden cited a number of instances of (1) confusion by authors of trade publications; (2) confusion by organizers of the Web 2.0 Expo trade show; (3) confusion by plaintiffs vendors; (4) confusion by plaintiffs legal representatives and auditor; and (5) miscellaneous incidents of confusion. In each case, the court determined, the error was mechanical-there was confusion over the parties names or affiliation, but not over the source of products or services. Plus, these incidents involved vendors or industry insiders, not prospective customers. In a footnote, the court noted that the Ninth Circuit hasnt approved of finding actionable confusion among investors, vendors, and suppliers in the absence of consumer confusion, even though other courts have done so. Only two incidents involved confusion among consumers; one of RCs customers expressed confusion as to which Rearden it contracted with after it received a subpoena in this case, and the other involved ...

The most common side effects associated with baclophen include drowsiness, dizziness, nausea and leg weakness. The incidence of these side effects is reduced by starting with a low dose of baclophen that is gradually increased. However, approximately one tenth of sufferers cannot tolerate baclophen. A rare complication is a confusional state that appears shortly after baclophen is started, but this resolves quickly when therapy is stopped. Baclophen should not be discontinued abruptly after prolonged use because hallucinations or seizures may occur. If these withdrawal symptoms do occur, the previous dose of baclophen is usually re-instituted and then gradually reduced ...

A reshuffling of Munis bus yard workers resulted in chaos that left dozens of trolleys stuck inside the Potrero bus yard, unable to hit the streets in time for Tuesday mornings commute. The usually mundane daily process of getting 105 drivers onto buses and 105 vehicles onto the road degenerated into confusion when no one showed up to organize the pull-out at Potrero Yard, a job usually done by workers known as yard starters. The confusion was compounded about 7:45 a.m. when all the drivers tried to start their electric buses at once, blowing a fuse. The practice of using highly paid drivers for jobs that clerks and other workers might do was one of dozens of problems cited in a scathing audit completed in July by the Board of Supervisors budget analyst, Harvey Rose. Last month, Cruz ordered all able-bodied drivers to get back on buses and assigned the yard starter duties to a mix of maintenance workers and injured drivers, Siegel said.
I must confess that I too used to get confused between False Positive and False Negative while building and interpreting various classification models, until i developed my own technique to remember it for life time. It works for me and perhaps it might for you too.. It is paramount to get the TP, TN, FP, FN right as they prove crucial in calculating TPR (a.k.a sensitivity), TNR (a.k.a Specificity) and many more. I will probably write an article with real examples on how to calculate these ratios without getting confused.. But first things first, steps to remove the confusion.. Step 1 : Keep the word Predicted in mind always. Step 2 : Read from right to left (Arabs and Persians might find this easier). Step 3: If the word is FP, you should read it as Predicted Positive but False. Similarly, say the word is FN, you would read it as Predicted Negative but False. ...

About one-third of the patients who develop mild, acute confusion (i.e., subsyndromal delirium) will go on to develop a severe acute confusional state (i.e. delirium). Delirium refers to a temporary change in the way a person thinks about things. Delirium occurs in patients admitted to the hospital particularly those patients that are very sick, who are given a number of medications, and who are not able to sleep normally. It affects their behavior, their understanding of the people and things around them, and their ability to make decisions. While ICU doctors do everything possible to eliminate the factors that may cause delirium, delirium may cause a person to become very agitated which if not controlled is dangerous to their safety as well as the safety of those around them. As well, if delirium develops in patients in the ICU, it may increase the risk for death, keep patients in both the ICU and hospital for longer and send patients to a long term care facility rather than home after they ...
Delirium is a common problem and associated with poor outcomes in intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Diagnosis of delirium in ICU patients is limited and usually underdiagnosed by physicians. The Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit (CAM-ICU) is one of the most widely used screening methods for detection of ICU delirium. Our goal was to translate and validate the CAM-ICU for use in the Korean ICU setting. Translation of the CAM-ICU was done according to the guidelines suggested by the Translation and Cultural Adaptation Group. For validation and interrater reliability assessment of the Korean CAM-ICU, two nurses independently assessed delirium in ICU patients and the results were compared with the reference evaluation, which was done by a psychiatrist using the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders IV (DSM-IV). Twenty-two patients were evaluated by two nurses and one psychiatrist expert independently. During the study period, we have continuously educated study nurses
Delirium is a state of mental confusion that can occur as a result of illness, surgery or with the use of some medications. This disease is also called as acute confusional state. Know more about Delirium and how to treat the disease with Unani system of medicine.
Delirium is a complex neuropsychiatric syndrome with an acute onset and fluctuating course; it is common in all medical settings. Delirium occurs in about 15-20% of all general admissions to hospital1; it occurs with higher frequency in elderly people and in those with pre-existing cognitive impairment.2 Delirium has many synonyms, reflecting its ubiquitous nature rather than distinct conditions. These synonyms include acute brain failure, acute confusional state, and post-operative psychosis. Delirium has not been well studied owing to methodological difficulties and a lack of consensus about its definition. Thus, delirium has been underappreciated as an independent entity that requires therapeutic intervention beyond identification of the syndrome and amelioration of the underlying cause. The development of a clearer definition, improved detection and assessment tools, and recognition of the significant independent morbidity associated with delirium have substantially changed this situation. ...
Delirium is an acute confusional state characterised by a global disturbance in cerebral function affecting consciousness, attention, cognition and perception with a course that may fluctuate over a period of hours. It is a common cause of disturbed behaviour in medically ill patients and studies have shown that it is extremely common in palliative care patients.. Studies have shown that 29-42% of patients have delirium on admission to a palliative care unit; 88% of patients in the last few days of life. The symptoms of delirium are distressing for the patient, their relatives and care givers and expose the sufferer to the risk of further harm e.g. falls.. The above is an extract from our Delirium guideline.. ...
Delirium is an acute confusional state defined by fluctuating mental status, inattention, and either disorganized thinking or an altered level of consciousness. Acute delirium is an increasingly recognized problem in intensive care units (ICUs) in the US and worldwide. ICU Delirium has been estimated to occur in as many as 50 to 80 percent of ICU patients. Delirium in the ICU has been associated with worsened clinical outcomes such as prolonged hospitalization and death [1-4]. Although noise has been shown to negatively influence sleep in the ICU, and sleep disturbance is a recognized contributor to ICU delirium[1-2, 4], there is no well-established link between ICU noise levels and the development of ICU delirium. Optimal strategies for the prevention and treatment of ICU delirium are yet to be defined, and this study will focus on a novel noise-reduction approach which has potential to impact both prevention and treatment [5-8]. Findings will be generalizable to other tertiary care medical ...
Wernickes encephalopathy must be viewed as a medical emergency even if there are other possible DIAGNOSES that are being considered. As the condition is potentially reversible, patients with any combination of the above symptoms should be treated with thiamine.. As little as 2mg of thiamine may be enough to reverse the eye problems but initial higher doses of at least 100mg are advisable. Thiamine solutions should be fresh as old solutions may be inactive. The problems of gait and acute confusional state may improve dramatically although improvement may not be noted for days or months. After thiamine has been started doctors may consider treatment with GLUCOSE.. They will carefully monitor the cardiovasculatr status of patients.

Although very rare, acute confusional states (ACS) have been known to occur after ibogaine administration, especially after long sessions involving relatively high doses. This is characterized by a noticeable psychic break from reality, during which the patient may be fully alert and communicative. This has been known to persist for periods as short as 15 minutes, but sometimes longer than 24 hours. Extreme cases have been reported of up to 14 days. In each of these reported cases patient eventually returned to their normal state.. Avoid using antipsychotic medications to try to stop a bad trip. Halperidol or thorazine will not function as they do to interrupt other psychoactive substances, and can precipitate a very difficult psychological experience that can last for 2-5 days.. Benzodiazepines may be implicated in causing or exacerbating the ACS. However, if this is not considered a factor, benzodiazepines (for example: 5 to 10 mg of diazepam for long-acting effects, or .25 to .5 mg of ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Significance of the confusion test in cerebral palsy. AU - Davids, Jon. AU - Holland, W. C.. AU - Sutherland, D. H.. PY - 1993. Y1 - 1993. N2 - The confusion test examines ankle dorsiflexion in patients with cerebral palsy. Orthopedists have related this test to swing-phase activity of the tibialis anterior, and have used it as a prerequisite for tendon transfer. To determine the validity of this assumption, ankle dorsiflexion was tested in 47 normal children. Forty-seven percent had a positive, unresisted confusion test, and 97% had a positive, resisted confusion test. Twenty-three patients with cerebral palsy who had a positive confusion test underwent gait analysis. Tibialis anterior electromyographs showed wide variability. Sagittal-plane ankle-movement curves revealed five patterns. Thirty-three percent of the patients showed abnormal swing-phase dorsiflexion, and 61% had abnormal swing-phase plantar-flexion. We conclude that the confusion test evaluates a normal, patterned ...

AU - van der Palen, Job. PY - 2008/12/1. Y1 - 2008/12/1. N2 - Background: Delirium or acute confusion is a temporary mental disorder that occurs frequently among hospitalized elderly patients. Patients who undergo cardiac surgery have an increased risk of delirium, which is associated with many negative consequences. Therefore, prevention or early recognition of delirium is essential. Methods: In this observational study, a risk checklist for delirium was used during the preoperative outpatient screening in 112 patients who underwent elective cardiac surgery. The Delirium Observation Screening (DOS) scale was used before and after surgery to assess whether delirium had developed in patients. The psychiatrist was consulted to confirm or refute the diagnosis delirium. Results: The incidence of delirium after cardiac ...
Delirium (or acute confusion) is a serious illness common in older people, in which a persons thinking and perceptions may be affected. Reducing delirium is important because of the considerable distress it causes, and the poor outcomes associated with it, such as increased admissions to hospital, falls, mortality and costs to the National Health Service (NHS). Preventing delirium is possible using multicomponent interventions; successful interventions in hospitals have reduced it by one-third. However, there is little research to guide practice in care homes, where it is common because of the clustering of known risk factors (older age, frailty, and dementia). In previous work we developed a multicomponent intervention to prevent delirium in care homes, called Stop Delirium! The intervention was based upon evidence from the research literature relating to the prevention of delirium and on strategies to change professional practice. Before starting a large costly trial of Stop Delirium!, this pilot
SSRIs, SNRIs, bupropion, tricyclic antidepressants, and MAOIs were excluded from the BELVIQ trials. Triptans and dextromethorphan were permitted: 2% and 15%, respectively, of patients without diabetes and 1% and 12%, respectively, of patients with type 2 diabetes experienced concomitant use at some point during the trials. Two patients treated with BELVIQ in the clinical program experienced a constellation of symptoms and signs consistent with serotonergic excess, including one patient on concomitant dextromethorphan who reported an event of serotonin syndrome. Some symptoms of possible serotonergic etiology that are included in the criteria for serotonin syndrome were reported by patients treated with BELVIQ and placebo during clinical trials of at least 1 year in duration. In both groups, chills were the most frequent of these events (1.0% vs. 0.2%, respectively), followed by tremor (0.3% vs. 0.2%), confusional state (0.2% vs. less than 0.1%), disorientation (0.1% vs. 0.1%) and hyperhidrosis ...

The presentations of MBD are variable. In the acute stage, the patient often has nonspecific neurologic changes, such as confusion, coma, seizure, dysarthria, and hemiparesis.2,3 Classic interhemispheric disconnection syndrome is often obscure in patients with confusional state, and it has often been misdiagnosed as Wernicke encephalopathy, alcohol withdrawal syndrome, or encephalitis. The early diagnosis depends on MR imaging. Conditions with acute onset, impairment of consciousness, widespread lesions, and cortical involvement indicate an unfavorable prognosis.2,3. The characteristic MR imaging findings are symmetric lesions of the corpus callosum. Lesions may be also found in the hemispheric white matter, cortex, middle cerebellar peduncles, and internal capsules.3,4 During the acute phase, the affected areas demonstrate edematous change with or without demyelination, appearing hypointense on T1WI and hyperintense on T2WI. After the acute stage, edematous change may subside and the corpus ...
Delirium is a confusional state that is associated with physical illness. Its characteristic features are rapid onset, altered consciousness, reduced attention and global cognitive impairment. Other symptoms are hallucinations (particularly visual hallucinations), disturbed sleep pattern and agitation. Delirium is commonly found in hospital patients and is associated with longer admissions, poor functioning level, persistent cognitive impairment and need for institutional care. Delirium is therefore an important syndrome to recognise and treat. The one included trial, of donepezil compared with placebo in 15 patients, showed no statistically significant difference in length of delirium. No other outcomes were measured.. ...
EurekAlert.org One in 25 patients with very low kidney function were admitted to hospital with severe confusion and other cognitive-related symptoms a few days after being prescribed a common muscle relaxant. A new study from ICES Western, Western University and Lawson Health Research Institute has shown that patients with kidney dysfunction who were prescribed a high dose of the drug baclofen, were more likely to be admitted to hospital for disorientation and confusion, than those who werent prescribed the drug. Their results are being published on November 9 in the high impact journal, JAMA and are being presented at the same time at the American Society of Nephrology meeting in Washington, D.C. When we looked at people with low kidney function (30 per cent or less) who received a high dose of baclofen from their prescriber, approximately one in 25 were being admitted to hospital with severe confusion, typically over the next few days, said Dr. Amit Garg, Professor at Westerns Schulich School
METHODS: This study was nested in 2 trials, each of which was conducted by the same research team with identical measurement of exposures and outcomes. Before surgery, patients were assessed with the validated Fried frailty scale, which evaluates 5 domains (shrinking, weakness, exhaustion, low physical activity, and slowed walking speed) and classifies patients as nonfrail, prefrail, and frail. The primary outcome was postoperative delirium during hospitalization, which was assessed using the Confusion Assessment Method, Confusion Assessment Method for the Intensive Care Unit, and validated chart review. Neuropsychological testing was a secondary outcome and was generally performed within 2 weeks of surgery and then 4-6 weeks and 1 year after surgery, and the outcome of interest was change in composite Z-score of the test battery. Associations were analyzed using logistic and linear regression models, with adjustment for variables considered a priori (age, gender, race, education, and logistic ...
The term Oneirophrenia describes a state where a person becomes confused about the distinction between reality and dream as if he or she were living in a dream state [1]. The Oxford Dictionary of Psychology defines oneirophrenia a dreamlike state of consciousness [2]. More operationally, the ability to assess reality as such and to make a clear distinction of it from a dream or sleep requires a fully functional brain, the absence of substances affecting consciousness, and the lack of confusional states. According to the authors of the current article, when this ability is deficient, oneirophrenia ensues. Furthermore, oneirophrenia can become a chronic condition, like the one observed in dementia and can generate anxiety in patients who cannot adequately experience the reality as such. First observed in patients with AIDS Dementia Complex [3], oneirophrenia has also been found in other forms of dementia, like Alzheimer, and organic brain damage. However, oneirophrenia has also been described ...

Delirium is a serious cognitive disturbance in which patients have impaired thinking and awareness, and some studies suggest that the condition often goes unrecognized in EDs. Few studies have explored the frequency of delirium among patients with advanced cancer who come to the emergency room for healthcare, says Ahmed F. Elsayem, MD, MPH. To address this research gap, he and colleagues had a study published in Cancer that sought to determine delirium frequency and recognition by ED physicians among patients with advanced cancer.. For the investigation, researchers looked for delirium in 243 patients with advanced cancer who seen at the ED of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Patients involved in the analysis were between the ages of 19 and 89, and all participants were assessed with the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) to screen for delirium and with the Memorial Delirium Assessment Scale to measure the severity of delirium. ED physicians were also asked whether or not they ...

Allen Bros., Inv. v. AB Foods LLC, No. 06 C 1269, 2008 WL 345600 (N.D. Ill. Feb. 6, 2008) (Andersen, J.). Judge Andersen granted defendant AB Foods summary judgment of likelihood of confusion and dismissed plaintiff Allen Brothers Lanham Act claim and related state law trademark infringement claim. Allen Brothers, a seller of gourmet meats, argued that AB Foods infringed its AB trademark by using it to sell AB Foods gourmet meats. The Court held that this was the rare case that was so one-sided as to warrant summary judgment that there was no likelihood of confusion, even though AB Foods uses its AB mark in direct competition with Allen Brothers: The marks were not similar because Allen Brothers always used its full name along with its AB mark; Allen Brothers customers are sophisticated meat purchasers, as evidenced by Allen Brothers high prices; The strength of Allen Brothers mark is in its full name, not just AB; Allen Brothers produced no evidence of actual confusion; and Allen Brothers

ABSTRACT. Background: The risk for intensive care delirium during hospitalization is of varying size. If the patient experiences a delirium it can lead to serious consequences. The consequences include increased mortality, longer hospital stay, increased suffering and even higher costs. The screening tools that are available are used in varying degrees in different intensive care units worldwide. The most valid one are the Confusion Assessment Method, the CAM-ICU; a screening tool developed for use in intensive care where it can be used on patients who are still intubated and thus do not have a chance to express themselves verbally.. Aim: Highlighting the current research regarding the care of patients suffering from intensive care delirium.. Method: The study is a literature review with a mixed approach and convergent design.. Results: The study shows that nursing interventions regarding the treatment of intensive care delirium are used but there are no guidelines for how the patients should be ...
FEDERAL Minister for Small Business Bruce Billson presented his views on food labeling at his address last week to the Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFCG} Industry Leader Forum.. Following his comments on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and Australian Competition Law, Mr Billson highlighted the confusion faced by consumers when trying to make sense of country-of-origin statements.. We know it is a requirement of Australian law that all imported and domestically produced food is labeled with the country-of-origin.. However, what constitutes legal representations of country-of-origin labeling is defined by the Competition and Consumer Act.. It is these definitions which create most of the confusion. Australian consumers may be surprised to know that 35 per cent of processed fruit and 28pc of processed vegetables are imported.. Odds are you are buying foreign food whether you want to or not.. Our growers are recognised globally as clean and green producers of quality food ...
In 2002, the granddaughter of former Secretary of State James Baker got trapped by the suction of a drain in a spa and drowned, leading to new federal regulations. The new rules are needed, but they seem to be causing confusion. Backyard pools and spas arent affected, but public pools are. In some cases, pools are being shut down out of fear of lawsuits or because the operators arent sure what they are supposed to do. Some confusion was caused by an attack on the Los Angeles County Health Departments program manager, Bernard Franklin, by an industry trade organization, the Pool Safety Council. The council says Franklins recent public comments are expensively, and even dangerously, wrong. The consequence is that some pool operators in L.A. County are following different rules from, for example, those in Orange County. The Orange County approach is the right one. The new rules require that pools and spas in parks, schools and other public places, including hotels, gyms and residential ...

How to Land: Finding Ground in an Unstable World foregrounds the importance of embodiment as a means of surviving the disorientation of our twenty-first century world. Linking somatics and politics, author Ann Cooper Albright argues that a renewed attention to gravity as both a metaphoric sensibility and a physical experience can help transform moments of personal disorientation into an opportunity to reflect on the important relationship between individual resiliency and communal responsibility.
