Predictive Model for the Risk of Delirium in Hospitalized Older Patients
[select name="cog" value="no=0|yes=1"] <-- Cognitive impairment (inability to think, concentrate, reason, remember, formulate ideas)
[select name="bun" value="no=0|yes=1"] <-- Elevated blood urea nitrogen/serum creatinine ratio (greater than 18)
[select name="ill" value="no=0|yes=1"] <-- Severe illness (APACHE score greater than 16, or nurse rating of severe)
