10.2 effect of delirium on quality of life in children under 5 years of age

Little is known about outcomes of pediatric delirium (PD) as they have not been broadly and rigorously investigated. I will present a single-center observational study with longitudinal data assessment exploring the effect of delirium, quality of life (QOL), and adaptive behavior in children and primary caretakers 1 to 3 months after discharge. Studies suggest that PD is associated with higher mortality rates, longer hospital stays, and long-lasting perceptual motor and behavior impairments. Children have delusional and frightening memories of pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) experiences, which may be a risk for PTSD.

Not in a fun way. Not like skydiving or watching horror films. Some of us were taught to expect and detect threats in every circumstance. Anticipating every buffet, ballgame and block party, every crosswalk, cough and conversation—we were taught to wonder: What could possibly go wr...
