Learning Objective 1: The learners will be able to understand the factors associated with quality of sleep.

Learning Objective 2: The learners will be able to understand the relationship between quality of sleeping and acute confusion.

Purpose: By distinguishing quality of sleep at high risk of acute confusion and thus the relevance of sleep to give care to achieve early assessment of early prevention, promote the recovery.

Methods: This study, ethics committee reviewed and approved human trials, a medical center in the south after surgery into SICU patients with at least 24 hours, first of all a simple and SPMSQ screening in line with the conditions of patients received the case, then the use of PSQI to conduct a questionnaire survey to collect basic information to read medical records, ICU chaos Assessment Form CAMICU for analysis. Descriptive statistics, in order to understand the demographic variables, inferential statistics to Pearson product-moment correlation analysis (Pearson correlation) analysis of demographic variables and sleep quality and relevance of acute confusion. T test analysis of demographic variables and sleep quality and whether there are significant differences in acute confusion.

Results: A total of 127 enrolled in the SICU patients, male 79, female 48, average age of 51.4 years. The APACHE II the average is 20. Poor quality of sleep accounted for 82.7%, age and sleep quality showed a positive correlation (r =. 336, p <.000), sleep quality and acute confusion there is a significant positive correlation (r =. 389, p <.000), and the found that APACHE II and the quality of sleep also has a significant positive correlation (r =. 314, p <.000). Linear regression analysis showed that APACHE II and predictable quality of sleep (R2 = .092,), F (1,125) = 13.708, P =. 000 <0.001.

Conclusion: Studies have shown that disturbed sleep quality of their sleep the most, and the poor quality of sleep were found in higher incidence of acute confusion. Overall sleep quality and significantly associated with acute confusion
