Delirium

Delirium is an acute, possibly severe, disturbance of consciousness and cognition that is often present in elderly patients admitted to hospital. It may worsen in patients during their stay in hospital.

This change in mental state is characteristically acute and fluctuating, but if properly treated it may be totally or partially reversed, or even prevented.
