Introduction.- Older hospitalized people have an increased risk of developing delirium.Deliriumis <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="associatedwithraisedrisk" data-scaytid="7">associatedwithraisedrisk</span> of death, longer hospital stay and subsequent bad cognitive function. Therefore it is important to prevent delirium in the geriatric patient. The aims of this study were to examine the number of delirious patients in a geriatric ward and if <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="calmmusic" data-scaytid="15">calmmusic</span>, specially composed to be used in <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="ahospital" data-scaytid="17">ahospital</span> environment, could prevent the development of delirium Setting: Patients in 22 beds at the department of Geriatric at <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Odense" data-scaytid="19">Odense</span> University Hospital Denmark, was included. Method.- The study was designed as a quasi-randomized study carried out during March, April and May 2010. Every Monday to Friday these patients were assessed for delirium using the <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="CAMscore" data-scaytid="21">CAMscore</span> with the <span class="scayt-misspell" data-scayt_word="Minicog" data-scaytid="23">Minicog</span> test. In the first and third month the number of patient in delirium was counted. In the second month music was played from 08.00 to 20.00, interrupted by an intermission for 2.5 hours mid day. Music was played in the patient&#39;s rooms. The set point Decibel was 50. Patients not hearing the music were excluded. Our counting unit was delirium days. The number of delirium days was compared between the intervention period and the non-intervention period respectively. Results.- Since the study is finished at the end of May, results are to be presented. During the non-intervention period the prevalence of delirium was 11.0% versus 9.2% in the intervention period. Conclusions.- The number of patients in delirium was comparable to other studies. The preliminary results suggest that music can reduce the prevalence of delirium.</p>
