Paediatric Emergence Delirium: A Comprehensive Review and Interpretation of the Literature

Mason, K. P.
(Abstracted from Br J Anaesth, 118(3):335–343, 2017) This article considers the evolution of emergence delirium (ED) and emergence agitation since it was first identified in the 1960s to assess present and future trends in identification, treatment, and prognostic value. There is a need for well-designed large prospective studies to assess ED risk factors and eliminate confounders as well as a need for standardized screening, evaluation tools, and data sharing in order to easily compare outcomes for researchers of pediatric ED (characterized by crying, sobbing, thrashing about, and disorientation following anesthesia).
