The data was analyzed by Chi-square,t-test.
According to our study, the incidence of acute delirium in SICU is 46.7%. There is no significant statistic difference in disease type, gender and age . Solitary and alcoholism(P=.05), restriction, fever and indwelling catheters(P< .02), high TISS score and low GCS score (P< .03) is statistic difference significantly.
For ICU patient, nursing staff should be cautious to prevent the delirium risk factors , including the necessity for indwelling catheters and physical restriction on patients , and the treatment of fever episode.
