(Recognition-information processing)
7.4 ± 1.7 11.0 ± 2.0 11.0 ± 1.0 14 13.8 ± 0.46
subscale 2 (10 points)
(Behavior)

(Physiologic control)

  1. J-NCS score was evaluated at 10 PM each day (total 4 days) after hepatectomy, and the lowest score in each recipient was used
  2. The J-NCS score of 24 or less was defined as the condition of delirium onset
  3. Significant difference (P < 0.05): In subscale 1, famotidine(0~19) vs omeprazole (25~26), and omeprazole (20~24) vs omeprazole (25~26)
  4. In subscale 2: famotidine(0~19) vs omeprazole (25~26),: famotidine(20~24) vs omeprazole (25~26), and omeprazole (20~24) vs omeprazole (25~26)
  5. In subscale 3: no significant difference each other
  6. Statistical analyses were made by using Steel-Dwass method for nonparametric multiple comparison test
