Title: Cognitive dysfunction rehabilitation using MentalPlus® digital game- A possible future tool to cognitive rehabilitation in POCD


Biography: Lívia Stocco Sanches Valentin


POCD remains a common postoperative complication associated with higher morbidity and mortality, especially in elderly patients and cardiac surgery. Research on digital games may not relate directly to postoperative cognitive dysfunction, but it can illuminate the possibilities of games related cognitive improvement in people with cognitive dysfunction. MentalPlus® is a digital game developed first to evaluate the cognitive dysfunction, in special POCD. This study investigated the association between the use of MentalPlus® game series of sessions in cardiac surgery patients with cognitive dysfunction and their results after them. Based on these findings, the scientific community could have interest to develop a major project to evaluate the impact of its usefulness for POCD rehabilitation.
