Acute encephalopathy & delirium
Acute encephalopathy often manifests itself as delirium. Delirium is diagnosed based on clinical features. Both diagnoses are characterized by an underlying cause.
Better detection is key
Acute encephalopathy and delirium are always associated with an underlying condition. Use of an objective bio signal enables more timely diagnosis and treatment of this underlying condition.
The impact of acute encephalopathy and delirium
A very frequent healthcare problem
The longer delirium lasts, the higher the impact
Often recognised too little and too late
Within clinical practice, there is a need for better recognition of acute encephalopathy and delirium. Using questionnaires, the majority of patients are missed and often only patients with hyperactive delirium are recognized.
