Last updated:19th May 2014

The purpose of this prospective observational study is to investigate if mechanically ventilated patients who are treated in one of the new intensive care unit (ICU) rooms have less delirium compared to patients who are treated in the conventional rooms on the same ICU. The investigators will further evaluate the impact on sleep quality, circadian rhythm, global cognitive function and general outcome parameters.

The investigators recorded light and noise conditions in the ICU rooms before start of the redesigning process (subproject light and noise in the intensive care unit (LiNo-ICU)). The investigators will compare data regarding light and noise in the ICU rooms before and after the redesigning process (non-patient related data; ethical vote amendment 08.05.2014).
