Abstract

Background: The Postoperative Quality of Recovery Scale found lower than anticipated recovery in the cognitive domain. The definition of cognitive recovery did not allow for performance variability, and may have been too sensitive. This study aimed to examine variability in cognitive performance in volunteers.

Methods: One hundred forty-three volunteers completed the cognitive domain questions at baseline, after 15 min and 40 min, and on days 1 and 3. Delivery via face-to-face interview was conducted for the first three measurements,and then randomized for day 1 and 3 measurements (faceto-face only, telephone only, telephone then face-to-face, face-to-face then telephone).
