Abstract

Introduction: A biomarker predicting further development risk of delirium would be of interest. Cortisol, as a lipid base blood hormone playing role in hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis, might be a good indicator. However, relationship between baseline blood cortisol level and delirium formation has not been yet investigated in ICU.
