Zusammenfassung

Akute Verwirrtheit ist als Fragestellung in Praxen, Notfallzentren oder im Konsildienst ein häufiges diagnostisches Problem. So kann es nach rein klinischen Kriterien schwierig oder unmöglich sein, eine akute Verwirrtheit sicher von einer chronischen kognitiven Beeinträchtigung zu unterscheiden. Die häufigste Form der akuten Verwirrtheit ist das Delir und bleibt gerade in seiner hypoaktiven Form sicher unterdiagnostiziert.
