Despite recent advances in postoperative delirium research, the proportion of children with postoperative delirium is still high. Although postoperative delirium is a frequent complication and is associated with the need for more inpatient hospital care and longer length of hospital stay, little is known about risk factors for recovery room delirium (RRD) occurred in postanaesthesia care unit. The aim of the study was to determine pre- and intraoperative risk factors for the development of RRD among children undergoing non cardiovascular surgery.
Recovery room delirium (RRD) defined as delirium occurred in PACU was diagnosed according to RASS-PAEDS criteria. Pre-, intra-, and postoperative data of patients undergoing elective non cardiovascular surgery were prospectively collected, univariate and multivariate logistic regression were performed to find the risk factors related to postoperative delirium.

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
