Delirium is the most common neurological adverse outcome in elderly surgical patients. It is associated with an increased mortality and morbidity, including need for prolonged hospital stay and institutional care. Despite this, there are no effective preventive strategies. Melatonin is a hormone released from the pineal gland. It is used to improve sleep quality and to treat jet lag. Small studies have suggested that it can decrease the chances of delirium. Since the existing literature is small and uncertain, it is important to test its benefit in a large sample to help guide clinicians. Our proposed trial is aimed at testing assessing the feasibility of a large, multicenter, randomized control trial to decrease the incidence of postoperative delirium.
This is a randomized study to examine whether aerobic exercise training (AET) before total shoulder replacement (TSR) surgery reduces the incidence of post-operative delirium (POD) and shorten time to recovery in elderly patients. POD is a form of sudden change in mental function that could be experienced after undergoing surgery.
In this study, post-operative delirium will be measured in patients undergoing surgery for bladder resection, and associated microRNA biomarkers will be evaluated in patients considered delirious and non-delirious after surgery.
The purpose of this two-centre pilot research study is to establish the feasibility of conducting a full trial that seeks to determine if a cardiac anesthesia policy that uses alternatives to benzodiazepine medications is better at preventing delirium after cardiac surgery when compared with a cardiac anesthesia policy that uses benzodiazepine medications.
This study examines the potential link between deep levels of anesthesia and delirium.
We plan to investigate the relationship between hypotensive epidural anesthesia for hip arthroplasty and cerebral oxygen saturation.
The purpose of this study is evaluate postoperative delirium after general anesthesia and regional anesthesia in elderly patients undergoing hip fracture surgery. Our research hypotheses are: (1) regional anesthesia may contribute to decrease the incidence of postoperative delirium. (2) Regional anesthesia may improve the outcome of elderly patient and reduce healthcare costs associated with postoperative delirium. (3) Postoperative delirium may result in poor long-term functional outcomes.
Post-operative delirium had multiple risk factors, such as pre-operative anxiety status, post-operative pain, and anesthetic method. We currently decrease pre-operative anxiety by parental accompanying until the children put to sleep. However, references indicate that parental anxiety can increase the post-operative delirium. Heart rate variability was used to measure the anxiety status of parents. We think sympathetic tone elevation measured by heart rate variability may not induce by anxiety alone, thus we want to explore this question by using Stat-Trait Anxiety Inventory questionnaire.
The goal of this study is to determine the potential ability of intranasal insulin to prevent post-operative cognitive decline and post-operative delirium in an elderly cardiac surgery population.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether brain oxygenation measured by cerebral oximeter has an impact on neurocognitive dysfunction.
