What is this article about?

A review by Shi et al. (2012) verifies that delirium develops in almost one-third of stroke patients and that the presence of delirium is associated with poorer outcomes. The researchers looked at 10 different studies, which included more than 2000 patients who had suffered an ischaemic or haemorrhagic stroke. They examined four different outcome parameters: length of stay, care required following discharge, inpatient death rates and survival rates one year after the stroke had occurred.
