The view of delirium has changed considerably over the last decade, and delirium is now a very topical issue within the intensive care unit (ICU) setting. Delirium has proved to be common in critically ill patients and is manifested as acute changes in mental status with reduced cognitive ability, incoherent thought patterns, impaired consciousness, agitation and acute confusion. In order to be able to prevent, identify and alleviate problems related to delirium it is important that validated instruments for delirium screening are implemented and evaluated. The aim of this study was to translate the Intensive Care Delirium Screening Checklist (ICDSC) into Swedish and test the inter-rater reliability in a Swedish general ICU setting.
