Fish Oil May Help Reduce Post-Surgery Delirium

Post-surgery delirium is a common problem among older adults, and can lead to longer hospital stays and a higher risk of complications; fish oil may be able to help.

A recent study showed that elderly patients who receive fish oil were less likely to experience post-surgery delirium. Researchers believe that the anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are responsible for the beneficial effects.

The study’s findings suggest that fish oil supplements may be a simple and effective way to reduce the incidence of post-surgery delirium in older adults.
