How To Try This Video: Delirium: The under-recognized medical emergency
This video guides viewers through the utilization of two tools found in the Try This series: the Confusion Assessment Method (CAM) and Assessing and Managing Delirium in Older Adults with Dementia. In this five chapter program, two patients are presented and assessed for delirium using the CAM: one with delirium and one with a delirium superimposed on an underlying dementia. Once identified, further assessment and treatment of the underlying etiology and safe management of care is shown using the Delirium Superimposed on Dementia Algorithm.
