Delirium clinical trials at University of California Health
4 in progress, 2 open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages up to 21 years
Children undergoing stem cell transplants are at risk for delirium, a temporary change in thinking and behavior. This study will define delirium rates, risk factors, and outcomes. Our eventual goal is to reduce delirium in this population.
open to eligible people ages 65-99
This is a pilot study to evaluate the use of remote cognitive testing to identify patients who may have cognitive vulnerability and may benefit from cognitive care pathways. Participants in this study are asked to complete a smartphone battery of thinking, memory, speech, and motor function tests on their smartphone.
PANDORA: Delirium Prevention After Cardiac Surgery Using IV Acetaminophen to Prevent Postoperative Delirium in Older Cardiac Surgical Patients
Sorry, not currently recruiting here
Our objective is to find an effective prophylactic intervention by evaluating IV acetaminophen's impact in reducing the frequency of postoperative delirium, one of the most common and detrimental complications of cardiac surgery in older adults.
The Impact of Ramelteon on Sleep and Delirium in Patients Who Undergo Pulmonary Thromboendarterectomy (PTE) Surgery
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
Sleep deprivation is known to affect brain function but is often ignored in the sickest patients including those in the intensive care unit after major surgery. In these patients, the levels of melatonin can also be altered. Melatonin is a hormone secreted in the brain that maintains the body's sleep-wake, or circadian, cycle. The investigators want to test whether improving sleep quality affects the risk of developing confusion (delirium) in patients having clot removed from their lung (open heart surgery). In order to improve sleep quality, the investigators will conduct a study of Ramelteon, a medication that mimics the activity of melatonin and measure its effects on levels of melatonin and monitor sleep.
