The purpose of this study is to identify cardiac patients' degree of unappreciated mild impairment in cognitive function patterns of cognitive function, and influencing factors related to cognitive functioning during hospitalization. The results from the study will contribute to tailoring the delivery of patient education to optimize patient understanding of information in future clinical practice.
It is hypothesized that the study will demonstrate the following:
1. The degree of cognitive function for patients hospitalized in a CICU will be below the scores for normal functioning adults.
2. Patients with acute cardiovascular conditions will score differently in cognitive functioning at various times throughout their hospitalization.
3. Relationships between cognitive function and following variables:
- Patients with greater sleep deprivation or fatigue will exhibit lower cognitive functioning.
- Patients with greater hunger will exhibit lower cognitive functioning.
- Patients who are experiencing greater anxiety will exhibit lower cognitive functioning.
- Patients who are experiencing depression will exhibit lower cognitive functioning.
- Patients who have undergone or will undergo shortly treatment or procedures will exhibit lower cognitive functioning.

A condition of low alertness or cognitive impairment, usually associated with prolonged mental activities or stress.
Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.
A childhood disorder predominately affecting boys and similar to autism (AUTISTIC DISORDER). It is characterized by severe, sustained, clinically significant impairment of social interaction, and restricted repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior. In contrast to autism, there are no clinically significant delays in language or cognitive development. (From DSM-IV)
A condition characterized genotypically by mutation of the distal end of the long arm of the X chromosome (at gene loci FRAXA or FRAXE) and phenotypically by cognitive impairment, hyperactivity, SEIZURES, language delay, and enlargement of the ears, head, and testes. MENTAL RETARDATION occurs in nearly all males and roughly 50% of females with the full mutation of FRAXA. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p226)
Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.
