Transcript: Delirium, Dementia, Amnestic, and other Cognitive Disorders by Abbie Paloucek Delirium Delirium is characterized by an acute change in cognition and a disturbance of consciousness. common symptoms acute change in mental status agitation attention impairment memory impairment and disorientation emotional breakdowns visual hallucinations Dementia *Dementia is not a disease itself, but rather a group of symptoms that are caused by various diseases or conditions.* Common symptoms -hallucinations -confusion and disorientation -deterioration in emotional control -memory loss -change in behavior Amnestic Amnestic disorders involve the loss of memories previously established, loss of the ability to create new memories, or loss of the ability to learn new information. common symptoms -Difficulty recalling remote events or information -Difficulty learning and then recalling new information -The patient in some cases is fully aware of the memory impairment, and frustrated by it -In some other cases, the patient may seem completely oblivious to the memory impairment or may even attempt to fill in the deficit in memory with fabrications that one believes to be facts Dementia is an acquired global impairment of intellect, memory and personality, but without impairment of consciousness. How to be diagnosed -impairment in short- and long-term memory -your memory impairment along with intellectual impairment causes significant social and occupational impairments causes of delirium withdrawal medication side effect electrolyte imbalance organ failure how to diagnose -if the person realizes that his or her memory loss is present they go get checked out or a friend, relative or employer might become aware and concerned of the person’s memory loss. -cognitive tests also may be done How to be diagnosed Disturbance of consciousness (reduced clarity of awareness about the environment) with reduced ability to focus, sustain, or shift attention. A change in cognition (memory deficit, disorientation, language disturbance) or development of a perceptual disturbance that is not better accounted for by a preexisting, established, or evolving dementia. The disturbance develops over a short period of time (usually hours to days) and tends to fluctuate during the course of a day. How to be treated When delirium is diagnosed or suspected, the underlying causes should be sought and treated with use of drugs called antipsychotics stop taking medication that causes delirium Causes of dementia -substance abuse (illicit drugs and alcohol) -Diseases that cause degeneration or loss of nerve cells in the brain such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's. -Diseases that affect blood vessels, such as stroke, which can cause a disorder known as multi-infarct dementia. An estimated 2 million people in the United States suffer from severe dementia and another 1 to 5 million people experience mild to moderate dementia. A cognitive disorder affects the ability for your brain to think, to process and store information, and to solve problems. Hospital delirium is common and often goes unrecognized, reports Harvard Women’s Health Watch (May 2011) What is a cognitive disorder? Presenile dementia is the term used for patients under 65 Senile dementia is used for older patients Dementia is used to refer to the primary dementing illness called Alzheimer's disease. How to be treated true dementia cannot be cured -medications are often used to slow the condition down -regular routines can help causes -stroke -traumatic brain injury -accidents that involve oxygen deprivation to the brain or interruption of blood flow to the brain (such as ruptured aneurysms ) -alcohol abuse how to treat -since the causes of amnestic disorder are other brain conditions and injuries, in some cases, treatment of the underlying disorder may help improve the accompanying amnesia. -memory exercises may be helpful.
