Delirium in Intensive Care Unit: Exploratory study of visual tracking and attention patterns through Eye-tracking Technology.

Project: Research/Creation Project

Project Details


Delirium in hospitalized patients is a strong independent predictor of mortality, longer length of hospital stay, subsequent hospitalizations, long-term cognitive impairment and health care costs. In addition to validated tools such as CAM-ICU, alternative strategies based on the recording of saccadic eye movements with eye-tracking technologies (ETT) are currently being considered for the assessment of delirium that may increase accuracy and diagnostic capacity, with incipient results in this condition.
Objective: To explore patterns of visual tracking and attention in patients with and without delirium in an Intensive Care Unit, through a pilot study with eye-tracking technologies.
