Acute Behavioural Disturbance (ABD), one of the most challenging, dangerous and serious presentations that we will encounter in emergency management of patients.

There is no widely accepted definition of ABD. Really it’s an umbrella term for a patient presenting with a triad of features, secondary to a specific underlying cause, made up of;

  • Delirium
  • Severe agitation and aggressive behaviour
  • Autonomic dysfunction

In this episode we're going to run through ABD, it's causes, the approach and investigation. Excellent management of these cases relies upon high quality team working, planning, communications and strategies to keep all involved safe and we'll be discussing each of those in turn.

Enjoy!

Welcome back to the podcast and to November's Papers Of The Month.

First up we're taking a look at a paper that challenges the current American Heart Association (AHA) and European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guidelines that recommend when right ventricular myocardial infarction, that patients are not administered nitrates due to the risks of compromise of cardiac output. 

Secondly we look at an RCT, with some really clever blinding, that looks at different BP targets for intubated and ventilated patients in ICU who have sustained a cardiac arrest.

Finally we take a look at a paper focussing on healthcare professionals’ perceptions  of interprofessional teamwork in the emergency critical incidents.

Once again we’d love to hear any thoughts or feedback either on the website or via twitter @TheResusRoom.
