Özet

Background: Delirium can be associated with cardiac system disorders. Stress plays an important role in the pathogenesis of postoperative delirium. Cortisol is one of the most important stress hormones in humans. We aimed to investigate whether a relation exists between serum cortisol and the degree of delirium after acute coronary syndromes (ACS).
