Arrest-Related Death and Excited Delirium Instructor 6.0
Recognizing, Responding, Preventing, and Investigating Arrest- Related and Sudden, In-Custody Deaths
Excited delirium events have been around for a long time. Although not a medical or psychological diagnosis, the term can be found in an 1798 medical treatise and in many contemporary medical and scientific articles. Although there are 4 broad evidence-based categorical causes of excited delirium behavior, often only drug-induced behaviors are discussed and taught. The IPICD Excited Delirium Instructor program identifies, discusses, and teaches all the categorical causes of excited delirium behavior, as well as how to identify the many behavioral cues associated with each categorical cause.
