Abstract

Post operative cognitive dysfunction is a new cognitive impairment, arising after a surgical procedure or anaesthesia. It occurs in elderly patients following anaesthesia and surgery and is a significant source of short and long term morbidity and mortality, longer duration of hospital stays and increased cost of care. Meticulous surgical and anaesthesia techniques are important for prevention.

Keywords: Post operative delirium, Dementia.
