Delirium often goes unrecognized despite clear evidence that it is often a cognitive manifestation of many medical and neurologic illnesses. Delirium is asso- ciated with a substantial mortality with in-hospital mortality estimates ranging from 25– 33%. Overall estimates of delirium in hospitalized patients range from 15–55% with higher rates in the elderly. Postoperative patients, especially status post hip surgery, have an incidence of delirium that is some- what higher than patients admitted to the medical wards. Because of these associated symptoms, pa- tients may be misdiagnosed as having sinus headache due to allergic rhinitis and treated inappropriately with antihistamine and nasal steroids. A typical presentation of cluster headaches is one of episodic severe headaches that occur at least once daily at about the same time for a period of 8–10 weeks. An attack usually lasts from 15–180 minutes, and 50% of headaches will have nocturnal onset. Men are af- fected three times more commonly with cluster headaches than women, and alcohol in- gestion may trigger cluster headaches. A distinguishing feature between cluster headaches and migraine headaches is that individuals with cluster headaches tend to move about during attacks and frequently rub their head for relief, whereas those with migraines tend to remain motionless during attacks. Interestingly, unilateral phonophobia and photo- phobia can occur with cluster headaches but do not with migraines. Treatment of acute at- tacks of cluster headaches requires a treatment with a fast onset as the headaches reach peak intensity very quickly but are of relatively short duration. High-flow oxygen (10–12 L/min for 15–20 min) has been very effective in relieving the headaches.
