Cholesterol-lowering Medications May Increase Risk of Confusion After Surgery
A recent study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal suggests that patients who are 65 or older and taking a type of cholesterol-lowering medication called a "statin," such as PRAVASTATIN, may have a higher risk of confusion or delirium after surgery than patients who do not take statins. This change in mental status may make your recovery from surgery difficult and increase the length of your hospital stay. For more information please visit: http://www.cmaj.ca/cgi/reprint/179/7/645
