Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence and severity of postoperative delirium

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Sleep quality
  • mobilization
  • loss of functional ability
  • length of stay
  • sedation
  • nocturnal nursing events

Estimated Enrollment: 96

Detailed Description:

Delirium is prevalent after hip fracture surgery. Delirium has been linked to postoperative sleep disturbances. Zolpidem is a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic that preserves REM sleep. The present study investigates the incidence of delirium in hip fracture patients randomized to Zolpidem treatment 5 mg vs placebo in the perioperative phase.
