Needs medical attention if persists.
Thanks for posting your query.
A sudden onset of delirium
can be due to psychological causes or renal or hepatic derangement. It can also happen during recovery from TIA
. In case there is no recent history of TIA and the delirium is gradually increasing or is persistent for more than 48 hours then it needs to be reported to the treating physician and further investigations are needed to find the cause.
If the cause is not physchological then all the organic causes are serious and need an urgent medical attention.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
