Delirium often goes unrecognized, even though it is a common condition in long-term care facilities. How can we be vigilant to the symptoms that might suggest dementia? Are patients with dementia most susceptible to developing delirium? What other conditions or medications might put patients at risk for developing delirium? Host Dr. Eric Tangalos welcomes Dr. William Smucker, professor of family medicine at Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine, to investigate preventative strategies physicians might use to prevent development of delirium, and how to best manage the condition.
