The objective of this study is to determine the incidence of delirium in adults patients who are admitted at the critical care unit of a Dutch University Hospital.

The primary aim is to determine the incidence of delirium and to determine risk factors for this group of patients to develop a prediction model.

A secondary aim is to find differences between delirious patients and non-delirious patients on different aspects of diagnostics, treatment and care, outcome, length of stay, and inflammation.
