In this episode, we are going to kick off our consult series by discussing delirium, a common bread-and-butter consult in psychiatry. We’ll discuss typical symptoms of delirium, risk factors for delirium, underlying causes, how to diagnose it, how to differentiate it from other psychiatric illnesses, and treatment options. We’ll break down our treatment discussion into non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic management options. After this episode, you’ll be well-equipped to handle any delirium consults that are sent your way!
