Common in older people, delirium, also known as acute confusional state and 'off legs' have subtle features, leading to under-diagnosis. A result of several causes, they may lead to serious long term problems. Early recognition and management is therefore vital. This session was reviewed by Paresh Dawda and last updated on 27/03/13.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the importance of delirium (acute confusion)
• Identify delirium at an early stage
• Institute management strategies for delirium
• Explain the common causes of 'off legs'
• Provide initial assessment and management of 'off legs'
