Delirium is a severe mental condition characterized by confused, chaotic thinking and a lack of situational awareness. While some neurological diseases cause delirium, it can also be caused by viruses and infections. Delirium should be examined and treated by medical professionals, as a delirious person is a danger to both themselves and potentially those around them.
The main causes of delirium include infections (such as urinary tract infections or pneumonia), medication side effects or interactions, substance abuse or withdrawal, metabolic imbalances (such as electrolyte disturbances), sleep deprivation, and underlying medical conditions (such as dementia or organ failure). Delirium can also be triggered by environmental factors, surgery, or certain procedures.
