The purpose of this study is to evaluate the best distraction mechanism during trigger finger injection in the outpatient setting. Temporary discomfort from the needle prick is highly fear...
TITLE Virtual Reality (VR) as a Distraction technique for management of acute pain at Outpatient Hysteroscopy DESIGN Randomised Control Trial (RCT) with Mixed methods - Qualitative and qua...
Objective: Needle-related procedures (venipuncture, vaccine injections) are the most common source of pain and fear, and generally experienced in childhood for the first time. This study w...
Venipuncture is one of the painful procedures most frequently performed in children. Pain and distress management in children, during needle related procedures, is warranted. The base for...
Many children with large severe burns report severe pain during burn wound cleaning. The current study explores whether adjunctive immersive Virtual Reality distraction may help reduce the...
Pain can be severe during the first days after arthroscopic surgery, and acute pain is an important outcome in clinical trials of surgical technique or anaesthetic strategy. A standardized, validated ...
Background and aims The present study was designed to evaluate the relative efficacy of two video game display modalities - virtual reality (VR) assisted video game distraction, in which the game is p...
Hospitals can cause anxiety, pain and fear in children perceiving medical procedures as intrusive and painful. Among the non-pharmacological strategies, distraction techniques have proved to be effect...
Virtual reality (VR) pain distraction has been applied across medical, surgical, and behavioral healthcare domains, marking a shift in pain attenuation practices. However, there is little research tha...
Despite enormous differences between acute and chronic pain, numerical pain scale (NRS) is commonly used in pain research and in clinical practice for assessing the intensity of both acute and chronic...
Bone lengthening by gradual mechanical distraction. An external fixation device produces the distraction across the bone plate. The technique was originally applied to long bones but in recent years the method has been adapted for use with mandibular implants in maxillofacial surgery.
Acute pain that comes on rapidly despite the use of pain medication.
A clinical syndrome with acute abdominal pain that is severe, localized, and rapid onset. Acute abdomen may be caused by a variety of disorders, injuries, or diseases.
Increase in the longest dimension of a bone to correct anatomical deficiencies, congenital, traumatic, or as a result of disease. The lengthening is not restricted to long bones. The usual surgical methods are internal fixation and distraction.
Scales, questionnaires, tests, and other methods used to assess pain severity and duration in patients or experimental animals to aid in diagnosis, therapy, and physiological studies.
