Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Disease

Robert S. Dittus spends much of his time researching Delirium, Intensive care unit, Intensive care, Intensive care medicine and Organic mental disorders. The concepts of his Delirium study are interwoven with issues in Emergency department, Mechanical ventilation, Activities of daily living, Confidence interval and Traumatic stress. His Intensive care unit study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sedative, Prospective cohort study, Severity of illness and Emergency medicine.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Glasgow Coma Scale, Randomized controlled trial and Sedation in addition to Intensive care. His Randomized controlled trial research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Physical therapy and Clinical trial. Robert S. Dittus interconnects Cross-sectional study, Cognitive disorder and Medical record in the investigation of issues within Intensive care medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Delirium as a predictor of mortality in mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (1990 citations)
  • Delirium in mechanically ventilated patients: validity and reliability of the confusion assessment method for the intensive care unit (CAM-ICU). (1905 citations)
  • Efficacy and safety of a paired sedation and ventilator weaning protocol for mechanically ventilated patients in intensive care (Awakening and Breathing Controlled trial): a randomised controlled trial (1410 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Delirium, Emergency medicine, Intensive care medicine, Intensive care unit and Physical therapy. His Delirium study incorporates themes from Prospective cohort study, Severity of illness, Cognition and Intensive care. His Prospective cohort study research includes themes of Cohort study and Pediatrics.

His Emergency medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Interquartile range, Emergency department, Retrospective cohort study, Confidence interval and Myocardial infarction. While the research belongs to areas of Intensive care medicine, Robert S. Dittus spends his time largely on the problem of Quality management, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Patient safety. His Intensive care unit study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Sedation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Delirium (29.32%)
  • Emergency medicine (22.84%)
  • Intensive care medicine (20.37%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Delirium (29.32%)
  • Emergency medicine (22.84%)
  • Confidence interval (17.90%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Delirium, Emergency medicine, Confidence interval, Prospective cohort study and Family medicine. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Anesthesia, Coma, Observational study and Cognition. His Emergency medicine study also includes fields such as

  • Emergency department, which have a strong connection to Internal medicine, Triage and Medical emergency,
  • Myocardial infarction that intertwine with fields like Interquartile range,
  • Cancer most often made with reference to Cohort.

His Confidence interval research incorporates elements of Odds ratio, Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale, Veterans Affairs and Intensive care medicine. His Prospective cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Arousal, Psychiatry, Intensive care unit, Pediatrics and Sedation. His Family medicine research includes themes of Nursing, Health literacy, Population ageing and Primary care.nurse.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Haloperidol and Ziprasidone for Treatment of Delirium in Critical Illness (166 citations)
  • Clinical phenotypes of delirium during critical illness and severity of subsequent long-term cognitive impairment: a prospective cohort study (117 citations)
  • Frailty and Subsequent Disability and Mortality among Patients with Critical Illness (115 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Surgery
  • Disease

Robert S. Dittus mainly investigates Prospective cohort study, Delirium, Physical therapy, Lumbar and Psychiatry. His work carried out in the field of Prospective cohort study brings together such families of science as Observational study, Veterans Affairs, Cohort and Confidence interval. His studies deal with areas such as Traumatic stress, Interquartile range and Pediatrics as well as Cohort.

He combines subjects such as Severity of illness and Randomized controlled trial with his study of Pediatrics. His research integrates issues of Anesthesia, Sedation, Emergency department, Cognition and Intensive care unit in his study of Delirium. As part of the same scientific family, Robert S. Dittus usually focuses on Psychiatry, concentrating on Cohort study and intersecting with Depression, Mental health, Executive dysfunction and Quality of life.
