Delirium is a reversible impairment, however, people that are ill with delirium may need to be treated in order to prevent injury and poor outcomes.
Treatment of delirium requires attention to multiple domains including: identify and treat the underlying medical disorder or cause soptimize physiology, optimize conditions for brain recovery, detect and manage distress and behavioral disturbances, maintaining mobility, provide rehabilitation through cognitive engagement and mobilization, communicate effectively with the patient and their carers, and provide adequate follow-up including consideration of possible dementia and post-traumatic stress.
These interventions are the first steps in managing acute delirium and there are many overlaps with delirium preventative strategies. Family, friends, and other caregivers can offer frequent reassurance, tactile and verbal orientation, cognitive stimulation e.
Another approached called the "T-A-DA tolerate, anticipate, don't Delerium - After All (CD) method" can be an effective management technique for older people with delirium, where abnormal patient behaviors including hallucinations and delusions are tolerated and unchallenged, as long as caregiver and patient safety is not threatened.
Low-dose haloperidol when used short term one week or less is the most studied and standard drug for delirium. Benzodiazepines themselves can trigger or worsen delirium, and there is no reliable evidence for use in non-alcohol-related delirium. The antidepressant Delerium - After All (CD) is occasionally used in the treatment of delirium, but it carries a risk of over-sedation, and its use has not been well studied.
For adults with delirium that are in the ICU, medications are used commonly to improve the symptoms. Dexmedetomidine may shorten the length of the delirium in adults who are critically ill and Delerium - After All (CD) is not suggested.
There is substantial evidence that delirium results in long-term poor outcomes in older persons admitted to hospital. In older persons admitted to hospital, individuals experiencing delirium are twice as likely to die than those who do not meta-analysis of 12 studies. Institutionalization was also twice as likely after an admission with delirium meta-analysis of 7 studies.
The association between delirium and dementia is complex. The systematic review estimated a fold increase in dementia after delirium meta-analysis of 2 studies. In prospective studies, people hospitalised from any cause appear to be at greater risk of dementia  and faster trajectories of cognitive decline,   but these studies did not specifically look at delirium. In the only population-based prospective study of delirium, older persons had an eight-fold increase in dementia and faster cognitive decline.
Dementia is supposed to be an entity that continues to decline, such as Alzheimer's disease. Another way of looking at dementia, however, is not strictly based on the decline component, but on Delerium - After All (CD) degree of memory and executive function problems. The causes of delirium in such patients depend on the underlying illnesses, new problems like sepsis and low oxygen levels, and the sedative and pain medicines that are nearly universally given to all ICU patients.
Outside the ICU, on hospital wards and in nursing homes, the problem of delirium is also a very important medical problem, especially for older patients. Delirium is one of the oldest forms of mental disorder known in medical history. English medical writer Philip Barrow noted in that if delirium or "frenisy" resolves, it may be followed by a loss of memory and reasoning power.

Delerium is a Canadian new-age ambient electronic musical duo that formed inoriginally as a side project of the influential industrial music act Front Line Assembly. They are best known for their worldwide hit " Silence ". The band is known to feature several female guest vocalists on their albums since their album Karma. Delerium has traditionally been a two-person project, but the only constant member throughout its history has been Bill Leeb.
Leeb was an early member of industrial dance pioneers Skinny Puppybut after he left in he went on to create his own project, Front Line Assembly with collaborator Michael Balch.
After Balch left both Front Line Assembly and Delerium, Leeb worked with Rhys Fulberand the two released several albums under the Delerium moniker; these years saw a gradual stylistic change from darker ambient to a more danceable sound.
After the release of KarmaFulber left to pursue other interests, and Leeb teamed up with producer Chris Peterson to release Poem. In contrast to Leeb and collaborators' other projects, Delerium has included several guest vocalists since the release of Semantic Delerium - After All (CD). They are also featured on two tracks from Delerium's album, Nuages du Monde. Although it may be argued that Front Line Assembly has the largest cult following of all Leeb and associates projects, Delerium is undoubtedly the most financially successful.
