Abstract

Acute confusional state is a condition that is commonly encountered in many types of medical practice. Certain patients, especially the elderly, are vulnerable to the disorder, and recognition of this fact can help prevent the development or minimize the severity of the condition. Thorough history taking and evaluation often point to the underlying cause, and attention to general principles of environmental and pharmacologic management can minimize morbidity.
