5. Dementia
From a dictionary of terms pertaining to memory processes.
Dementia is a clinical state characterized by loss of function in multiple cognitive domains. The most commonly used criteria for diagnoses of dementia is the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, American Psychiatric Association). Diagnostic features include : memory impairment and at least one of the following: aphasia, apraxia, agnosia, disturbances in executive functioning. In addition, the cognitive impairments must be severe enough to cause impairment in social and occupational functioning. Importantly, the decline must represent a decline from a previously higher level of functioning. Finally, the diagnosis of dementia should NOT be made if the cognitive deficits occur exclusively during the course of a delirium. There are many different types of dementia (approximately 70 to 80). Some of the major disorders causing dementia are: Degenerative diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's Disease, Pick's Disease) Vascular Dementia (e.g., Multi-infarct Dementia) Anoxic Dementia (e.g., Cardiac Arrest)

Free evaluation accounts are available to healthcare providers so register here and learn why physicians, care managers, insurance companies, clinics, and universities across the nation are using our Dementia Care System. With currently approved medications, appropriate treatment can delay the onset and progression of Alzheimer's disease for several years. In many cases, the expected delay can exceed the patient's life span. This means that many Alzheimer's patients need never experience the most debilitating symptoms of the disease. We call this "

The Art Of Dementia
Are people with artistic ability, born or made? If you had to pick a life event, which you thought might trigger a hitherto undiscovered talent such as whistling, it is unlikely that you would answer with the term 'degenerative brain disease'. Yet it can happen. Doctors in San Francisco recently reported on a number of people suffering from a kind of dementia called fronto-temporal dementia; even as parts of their brains were slowly dying and ceasing to function, they developed entirely new artistic abilities. Dr Bruce Miller, a neurologist at the University of California in San Francisco, talked to Andrew Luck-Baker about some of his talented patients. Listen to the whole interview What Causes Fronto-Temporal Dementia?

Section 5. Delirium and Dementia
Chapter 40. Dementia Alzheimer's Disease Other Cortical Dementias Subcortical Dementias
A deterioration of intellectual function and other cognitive skills, leading to a decline in the ability to perform activities of daily living. The use of clinician must differentiate dementia from benign senescent forgetfulness (ie, age-related memory loss), which results from the slowing of neural processes with age. Persons with benign senescent forgetfulness learn new information and recall previously learned information more slowly. However, if they are given extra time and encouragement, their intellectual performance is essentially unchanged from their baseline. Daily functioning remains unaffected. Persons with this condition are often more concerned about it than are family members; reassurance and coping strategies are helpful.
The causes of dementia ( see Table 40-1 ) are difficult to differentiate because they are imprecise; many cases can be confirmed only by postmortem pathologic examination, which is usually not performed. Moreover, mixed dementias may be common (eg, recent research shows an interplay between Alzheimer's and cerebrovascular diseases). Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementias are probably the two most common types, accounting for up to 90% of cases of established dementia in about a 2:1 ratio.

Central nervous system Alternative names Return to top Chronic brain syndrome Definition Return to top Dementia refers to a group of symptoms involving progressive impairment of brain function. Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Disorders that cause dementia include conditions that impair the vascular (blood vessels) or neurologic (nerve) structures of the brain. Some causes of dementia are treatable. These include normal pressure hydrocephalus , brain tumors, and dementia due to metabolic causes and infections. Unfortunately, most disorders associated with dementia are progressive, irreversible, and degenerative. The two major degenerative causes of dementia are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia (loss of brain function due to a series of small strokes). The two conditions often occur together, and vascular dementia may speed the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Neither condition can be diagnosed definitively until autopsy. Dementia may be diagnosed when two or more brain functions are impaired. These functions include language, memory, visual-spatial perception, emotional behavior or personality, and cognitive skills (such as calculation, abstract thinking, or judgment). Dementia usually appears first as forgetfulness. Other symptoms may be apparent only with neurologic examination or cognitive testing.
