For more than a decade medical practitioners have used the technique of 'distraction' with the aim of reducing pain felt by patients in many medical procedures.
The technique of distraction a much researched and successfully application in field of clinical practice, // is a procedure used with the aim of reducing pain that is associated with certain medical procedures. The principle behind the use of ‘distraction’ is the hypothesis that there is an important psychological element in the awareness of pain, with a substantiate amount of attention given to the harmful stimulus that affects the perception of the pain.
Distraction techniques are based on the patient's limited capacity for attention, resulting in a reduction in the patient's attention to the stimulus and therefore a reduction in the stimulus itself. It was assumed that the ideal distracter would require an optimum amount of attention involving various senses (visual, auditory and kinaesthetic), an active emotional involvement, and participation from the patient to compete with the signals of the harmful stimuli.
The advanced distraction techniques (ADTs) recently developed use 3D images combined with dynamic audio stimuli, making the techniques more likely to meet the requirements of an ideal distracter than the traditional distraction methods such as watching a film or playing a simple computer game.
The ADTs simulate real-life situations, and the possibilities are infinite. For example, until now users could choose between taking a flight, driving, downhill skiing, exploring buildings and many more activities.
In this study, peer-reviewed publications on ADTs and pain have been reviewed to determine the clinical effectiveness and importance of using these techniques as analgesic. The results suggest that the ADTs can significantly reduce the pain associated with medical treatment. The use of analgesic was clinically revealing in most cases, esPage: 1 2 Related medicine news :1
