Review, May/20:Noninvasive Approaches for Anxiety Reduction During Procedures


Recommended Posts

The full title of this American review is "Noninvasive Approaches for Anxiety Reduction During Interventional Radiology Procedures".







Periprocedural anxiety is a major cause of morbidity, particularly for interventional radiology procedures that often depend on conscious sedation. Management of anxiety and pain during image-guided procedures has traditionally relied on pharmacologic agents such as benzodiazepines and opioids. Although generally safe, use of these medications risks adverse events, and newer noninvasive, nonpharmacologic techniques have evolved to address patient needs. In this review, we explore the roles of hypnosis, structured empathic attention, anodyne imagery, music, video glasses, and mobile applications in reducing procedural anxiety and pain with the goal of improving patient satisfaction, operational efficiency, and clinical outcomes.
