In this thesis, we aim for providing answers on three key research questions:
• What is the anticholinergic burden in patients diagnosed with pediatric delirium, iatrogenic withdrawal syndrome or both?

• Is there a role for non-benzodiazepine agents for the sedation of patients in the PICU?
• Does the implementation of IV paracetamol in daily clinical practice as primary analgesic for infants achieve comparable results as in a RCT?
