The purpose of HEAR is to provide specialised information to health professionals, patients and the public about key health topics. Each issue is the result of the collaborative effort of librarians from health organisations across Ireland.
This month, the focus is on Delirium. Delirium is a brain disorder that causes people to be confused. People with delirium often have:
- Trouble paying attention, or switching attention from one thing to another
- Memory, language, or other thinking problems
- Trouble knowing where they are, when it is, or who the people around them are.
