Objective: Acute brain dysfunction (delirium and coma) occurs frequently in critically ill patients and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Septic patients with brain dysfunction may differ from the general critically ill population. The aim of this investigation was to study the relationship between systemic inflammation markers and duration of acute brain dysfunction in sepsis patients.
