Constipation is independently associated with delirium in critically ill ventilated patients

Abstract

Delirium is a central nervous system (CNS) dysfunction reported in up to 80 % of intensive care unit (ICU) patients associated with negative short- and long-term outcomes [1, 2]. Gastrointestinal motility disorders are frequent in ICU patients leading to frequent delayed passage of stools [3]. Because there is a bi-directional communication between the CNS and the digestive tract [4], we believed it relevant to test the hypothesis that constipation and delirium are related in ICU patients.
