Acute confusion for EMT and Paramedics dives into geriatric care and treatment for confused patients. Where am I going and what’s going on? Acute confusion, often known as encephalopathy, can have a host of causes. Some causes of confusion are reversible by EMS providers. A patient who suddenly becomes delirious, or confused, should be treated as a medical emergency. The key responsibilities of the EMS providers in these cases are to ensure crew and patient safety. This is followed by determining the cause of the confusion, and treating the cause if possible. The following topics are covered:
- Cardiac dysfunction
- Liver/Kidney failure
- Sedation for paramedics
