Abstract

Delirium may be part of the spectrum of COVID-19 symptoms that patients present with. In some cases, the delirium may be severe and have a rapid onset. Clinicians should have a high level of suspicion of COVID-19 when considering a possible cause of the delirium. Non-pharmacological interventions (See Box 1) are the mainstay for the management of delirium in all settings; there is consistent evidence of benefit in the prevention of delirium Communication and care are compromised by the need for Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) in COVID-19 Use of remote consultations may be necessary and is often feasible (See Box 2)
