There will be a study day held on Sept 12th in Cambridge on Delirium and Restraints in ICU.  It is only £50 (free to NHS staff and members of Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire critical care network).  There is an excellent programme of speakers.  So if you are finding agitated ICU patients a challenge then you may find the answers here.
