Aim: To critically evaluate the literature related to the diagnosis, prevention and management of delirium in intensive care unit settings. Method: Searches within Web of Science, CINAHL, MEDLINE and EMBASE were conducted to produce a comprehensive literature review in order to critically analyse the current evidence base. Significant Findings: Although knowledge and evidence in all aspects of delirium has vastly increased in the recent years, a serious lack of implementation of routine protocols throughout diagnosis, prevention and management exists. A push towards educating ICU staff, routinizing care in ICU for delirium, and continuing progress in building the body of evidence, is needed to decrease negative clinical outcomes. Keywords: ICU delirium, ICU psychosis, management, identification, risk factors, pathophysiology, epidemiology, assessment methods, diagnosis, prevention.
