Project Overview

A significant proportion of critically ill children experience delirium, a form of brain dysfunction associated with adverse outcomes. In children, delirium manifests with disorientation, restlessness, and agitation (hyperactive) or with unresponsiveness and excessive drowsiness (hypoactive). Children who develop delirium stay in the hospital longer and do worse after discharge compared…
