New from Oxford Textbooks in Psychiatry, the Oxford Textbook of Neuropsychiatry bridges the gap between general psychiatric textbooks and reference texts in neuropsychiatry. Divided into four sections, it covers core knowledge and skills for practice in all psychiatric disciplines, with key information for training in neuropsychiatry.

ABSTRACT: Background: Delirium is a serious neuropsychiatric syndrome affecting mainly elderly participants with acute medical diseases. The pathophysiology of delirium remains poorly understood as it involves complex dynamic interactions between a diversity of risk factors. Exploring how etiological factors interact with each other can clarify the pathophysiological mechanisms and facilitate the early identification of this syndrome. The aim of this study was to explore how different risk factors co-occur in medically ill elderly patients with delirium with cluster analysis and identify clinically meaningful sub-groups in this population. Methods: A cross-sectional study was developed. Ninety-nine elderly inpatients admitted to acute medical wards diagnosed with delirium during hospitalization were selected. For each patient sociodemographic characteristics, acute and chronic medical conditions, laboratory parameters, and current medication were collected. Results: The cluster analysis extracted three distinct subgroups of participants with delirium. Patients in cluster 1 ( n = 28) had higher rates of medication with anticholinergic proprieties. Cluster 2 ( n = 29) included participants with cardiac and pulmonary comorbidities associated with both chronic and acute reduction of blood flow and/or oxygenation to the brain. Cluster 3 ( n = 42 patients) comprised patients with simultaneous deregulation of different organs/systems, such as electrolytic disturbances, metabolic disturbances, and acute renal failure. Known predisposing factors of delirium, such as age and pre-existing dementia, were similar between groups. Conclusions: The results reveal different patterns of clinical characteristics in elderly patients with delirium. This is relevant to clinical care of acute medically ill patients and suggests that different pathways are implicated in delirium pathophysiology.

Now in a completely rewritten version, this definitive work covers all aspects of delirium, a frequent complication of physical illness, especially in the elderly. Unique in its range of coverage, the book traces the history of delirium from the 5th century B.C. to the present, and offers detailed discussions of its clinical features, diagnosis, pathophysiology, etiology, and treatment. This new edition fully reflects the substantial progress in understanding the disorder made over the last decade. Delirium will be very useful to geriatricians, neurologists, psychiatrists, and other clinicians as it offers detailed practical guidance on diagnosis and management of the disorder. The only English-language monograph on this subject, it contains over 2,300 references.

The period of acute recovery following acquired brain injury has been referred to as post-traumatic amnesia despite the recognition that the scope of impairment extends far beyond memory. Conversely, delirium is a neuropsychiatric disorder with a broad constellation of symptoms, including cognitive, psychiatric and behavioral impairments, which may be precipitated by a wide range of etiologies. Recent understanding of acute recovery following acquired brain injury suggests that these cognitive and behavioral impairments may be managed more appropriately if they were considered instead as symptoms of delirium. The advantages of this conceptualization are clear: delirium is a condition which accounts for the breadth of the symptoms ignored by the concept of post-traumatic amnesia and for which there are clear treatment recommendations. To improve recognition of the condition in medical rehabilitation settings, a brief screening tool was developed. The tool was comprised of three items demonstrated to be commonly impaired in patients with delirium and which were hypothesized to reflect core features of the disorder. The screening tool was compared to diagnostic criteria for delirium and also to existing validated scales. The accuracy of the tool was assessed using receiver operating characteristic analysis, and the concurrent and construct validity of the tool was established by comparing the screening tool to validated tools in terms of severity, accuracy at existing cutoff scores, duration of delirious episode and alignment with theoretical constructs. Data analysis indicated that the proposed tool was demonstrated to be a highly accurate and valid screening instrument for delirium in a population of patients in an inpatient medical rehabilitation setting. Because the screening tool is efficient and objective relative to other measures available for delirium screening, it holds the potential to improve the recognition and subsequent treatment of the disorder.
