This article discusses the existence of excited delirium in combination with other factors such as alcohol/drug use, physical condition of subject/patient, and the use of physical or mechanical restraints that could lead to a potentially fatal condition known as sudden in-custody death syndrome. The article reviews predisposing factors in combination with potentially hazardous actions by law enforcement and healthcare providers that have led to sudden in-custody death syndrome. It is up to those coming in contact with these subjects/patients who exhibit excited delirium states to be aware of the behaviors and further assess for other precipitating risk factors that may require further medical attention.
