Read time: 2 mins
Last updated:1st Jan 2017
In this randomized study, the investigators aim to test the hypothesis that the reinstitution of a normal circadian rhythm by continuous infusions of dexmedetomidine compared to propofol between 8pm and 6am after diagnosis of hyperactive or mixed delirium, decreases the duration of delirium. The infusions might have to be repeated several times to achieve resolution of delirium.
