POCD The Gorilla in the Operating Room

Here is another article on the alarming incidence of POCD.  At last some anesthesia professionals are taking a second look at why this is happening to us.  I think they should be looking at the drug which CAUSES the very symptoms they don't like.  Versed.  Just because the "ultra short acting" drug is allegedly excreted from the body quickly doesn't mean that the effects are transient as well.  (new studies out which show Versed remains in the body much longer than they originally thought) When a hurricane blows through a city, is everything normal when the wind and rain are gone?
