BOF: 2.44

You are called in to see a patient on the surgical ward. He is an 84-year-old male who was admitted the previous day with an obstructed inguinal hernia for which he had surgery, which was uncomplicated and successful.

He has become confused in the night and is shouting out that there are wild animals attacking him. He has been trying to run away and the nursing staff are having difficulty controlling him as he says that they are trying to steal his money. He is been nursed in a single room. He is afebrile but it is difficult to examine him thoroughly as he is so agitated.

The surgical house officer wishes to sedate him and asks you whether he should use diazepam or pethidine. You reply that the most appropriate drug to use in this situation would be:

a)      Chlorpromazine

b)      Haloperidol

c)      Risperidone

d)      Clozapine

e)      Quietiapine
