Delirium Risk Factors
Delirium is a multifactorial syndrome influenced

Baseline patient risk factors (vulnerability)
Precipitating factors
Patients with more baseline risk factors and
exposed to more precipitating factors are much
more likely to develop delirium

Potential surgical risk factors
• Blood loss (Marcantonio, Am J Med 1998)• Type of surgery (Cardiac, orthopedic) Potential anesthetic factors
Anesthetic factors
Types (general vs. regional)
Williams-Russo, JAMA 1995
Rasmussen, Acta Anaesthesiol Scand 2003
Management (intra- &/or post-op)
Williams-Russo, Anesthesiology 1999
Specific anesthetic agent
Leung et al, Br J Anaesth, 2006
Pain & postoperative delirium
• Age > 70 years• Moderate to severe preop rest pain • Increase in pain at rest preop vs. POD #1 • Oral narcotics vs. PCA Vaurio L et al., Anesth & Analg 2006
