Less pain

Use of VR in pediatric setting leads to less reported needle pain.

Needles can be a source of stress for many patients, particularly in the pediatrics department. But a new study found that employing virtual reality in pediatric care can help children manage pain, according to a study published in the Journal of Pediatrics. The new study, which zeros in on the use of virtual reality in pediatric emergency departments and outpatient clinics, found that patients given the VR system reported less pain than their peers in the standard-of-care group.
