Özet

Objectives: Patients who undergo cardiac surgery have an increased risk of delirium. Currently, there are few choices of treatment for postoperative hyperactive delirium in cardiac surgical patients. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of morphine compared with a haloperidol-based regimen in hyperactive-type delirium in patients after cardiac surgery.
