We need to learn more about who is likely to develop POCD. At present, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other perioperative clinicians should implement plans to limit the surgical trauma, reduce pain effectively, prevent postoperative complications, promote early mobilization and rehabilitation, and provide enriched environment for patients, as enriched environment may reduce POCD.
