|MAXIMUM PAIN||TIME OF THE PROCEDURE|
Virtual Reality Assisted Anaesthesia (VRA) during upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, Surgical Research Updates, 2019.
Mosso Vazquez, et al.
Results: The study indicates that peak pain was significantly lower in the virtual reality group (VCR =4.536, VRS = 2.662; Mnon-VR = 5.814, VRSnon-VR = 2.921, F (1, 113) = 5.991, p = .016, d = .469). Although statistically insignificant, the mean time per procedure – in minutes – with VR was 30% faster than without VR (MVR =5.17, SDVR = 1.523; Mnon-VR = 5.97, SDnon-VR = 3.279, F(1, 111) = 2.333, p =.13, d =..29). Analysis of the physiological measures also identified that the respiratory rate during the procedure was significantly lower in the RV group than in the non-RV group. N=115
