Purpose and Type of Research:This study will be conducted to examine the effect of virtual reality glasses on surgical fear and anxiety in patients scheduled for cardiovascular surgery. The study is a randomized controlled experimental research. Method:The population of the research was approximately 2900 patients who underwent cardiovascular surgery in a year at Dr. Siyami Ersek Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery Education Research Hospital. The sample size of the study was calculated using the G*Power software program.The study will be completed with 60 people by taking 30 people into the experimental and control groups.Data will be collected with a personal information form, surgical fear scale and state anxiety scale. Hypothesis of the Research: H1: Application of virtual reality glasses reduces surgical fear in patients planned for cardiovascular surgery. H2: Application of virtual reality glasses reduces anxiety in patients scheduled for cardiovascular surgery.
To investigate the anxiolytic effects of binaural beat-embedded audio in patients undergoing sedation-free upper gastrointestinal endoscopy
The goal of this randomized controlled trial is to compare a novel sound healing approach, biofield tuning, to a waitlist control group in a healthy adult population naive to the intervention. The main questions it aims to answer are: - Is there a significant reduction in state and trait anxiety as measured by the State-Trait Anxiety Index (STAI) with biofield tuning compared to waitlist control? - Are there significant reductions in negative affect, as well as increases in self-compassion, positive affect, and interoceptive awareness in the intervention group? - What are the relationships between changes in anxiety symptoms, negative affect words, and microbiome changes in participants who have undergone this biofield intervention? Participants will be: - Randomized to intervention/control - Recieve 5 sound healing interventions weekly - Asked to complete surveys and audio prompts throughout the intervention - Asked to provide a microbiome sample pre- and post-intervention
The study was conducted in the ENT Clinic of Mersin Şehir Training and Research Hospital between June 1 and December 1, 2021, with a total of 60 adult patients, 30 in the study group and 30 in the control group, who met the inclusion and exclusion criteria.
The goal of this study is to quantify the effects of 20 sessions of Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES) on measures of acute stress responses in Soldiers. The main question it aims to answer is how 20 sessions of CES will affect Soldiers' biochemical (salivary alpha amylase and cortisol), physiological (e.g., heart rate, heart rate variability, respiration rate), emotional (state anxiety), and behavioral (i.e., cognitive task performance) responses. - On Day 1, participants will complete a baseline measure assessing their biochemical, physiological, emotional, and behavioral responses to a stressful lethal force decision making task. - In the next four to six weeks, participants will complete 20 CES sessions. - Within five days of completing the 20 CES sessions, participants will complete a follow-up measure assessing their biochemical, physiological, emotional, and behavioral responses to the same stressful lethal force decision making task they completed on Day 1. Researchers will compare the Active CES group to the Sham CES group to see how 20 sessions of Active CES will affect the participants responses to their biochemical, physiological, emotional and behavioral responses relative to the Sham CES group.
Previous studies have accepted a strong correlation between anxiety and dysregulation in respiratory rate. The investigators would like to explore this correlation from an osteopathic perspective. The investigators seek to assess the muscles, bones, ligaments, and fascia related to the respiratory system, mainly the thoracic diaphragm. The study does not focus on clinically diagnosed General Anxiety Disorder but rather State-Trait Anxiety among medical student participants. State Anxiety is the temporary anxiety one feels in certain situations, and Trait Anxiety is the stable tendency to become anxious. The investigators aim to assess somatic dysfunctions in medical students' respiratory systems and correlate those findings with their respective scores on the State-Trait Inventory for Cognitive and Somatic Anxiety (STICSA) survey. The investigators will assess the patient's somatic dysfunction using an osteopathic structural exam, and the STICSA will quantify the patient's level of statetrait anxiety. This inquiry will further explore osteopathic medicine's perspective on addressing the patient as a whole by correlating the close relationship between one's mental state and the resultant physical dysfunctions within different areas of the body. Establishing this correlation can pave the way for a new perspective on treating mental health disorders that is both cost-effective and potentially more efficacious than the traditional method, which has a high relapse rate. Exploring the connection between somatic dysfunctions and state-trait anxiety will benefit the patient's overall well-being and add a new level of care that osteopathic physicians can provide to others.
Introduction: Mothers of babies with congenital heart disease tend to have higher levels of depression, stress and anxiety. Currently, psychological support group technology has been a resource increasingly used by health professionals, with a therapeutic objective as an instrument to promote care. Objective: The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a group intervention in improving depression, anxiety and the psychological well-being of mothers of babies with congenital heart disease. Methods: Randomized, parallel clinical trial, in which the factor under study will be online group therapy and the outcome the level of depressive symptoms, anxiety and psychological well-being, assessed using the instruments: BECK-II, BAI and Wellness Scale Ryff's psychological well-being at the beginning and after the intervention. The fellow who will reapply the instruments will be blinded to the groups. Patients will be randomized 1:1, with odd numbers assigned to treatment (online group therapy) and even numbers assigned to controls (no online group therapy). The intervention group will have 8 weekly group consultations, psychoeducational and focused on depression, anxiety and psychological well-being. The sample size was calculated at 36 individuals for each group. Data will be analyzed using the statistical program Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 27.0. For comparison between groups, Student's t test or Kruskall-Wallis or Chi-square test will be used. A two-tailed value of p≤ 0.05 will be considered significant. The normality of instrument scores will be evaluated using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Covariance analysis will be performed to assess the influence of initial scores of anxiety, depression and well-being and their changes after intervention. The effect size will also be calculated. Expected results: It is expected to know and describe the population studied with regard to the level of depressive symptoms, anxiety and psychological well-being. In addition to seeking knowledge about the effectiveness of Group Therapy for these variables.
In recent years, the number of people with symptoms of anxiety are on the rise. TCM Daoyin is a promising intervention for anxiety. This study is designed to allow researchers to better understand the changes in anxiety symptom, brain activity, and immune function during patients with anxiety states receiving TCM Daoyin intervention. Thus, the aims of the prospective randomized study are: (1) to examine the effects of TCM Daoyin training on reducing symptoms of anxiety, (2) to measure brain activity by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and (3) to assess Immune function.
Induction of anesthesia can be distressing both for children and their parents. Nonpharmacological behavioral interventions can reduce the anxiety of children without significant adverse effects as seen with sedative drugs. The aim of this study will be to evaluate whether the children's or parental preference with attending parent affects on the postoperative delirium of the children or not. The delirium of the children will be assessed by the Pediatric Anesthesia Occurrence Delirium Scale (PAED)
The goal of this feasibility study is to investigate the feasibility of a personalized naturalistic Virtual Reality scenario by assessing motion-sickness effects, engagement, pleasantness, and emotions felt considering a sample of individuals with cognitive impairment resident at the Azienda Pubblica di Servizi alla Persona (APSP) "Margherita Grazioli", a long-term care home in Trento (Italy) in collaboration with the Department of General Psychology - University of Padova (Italy) and the Centre for Health and Wellbeing-Fondazione Bruno Kessler (Italy). The current proof-of-concept and feasibility study is a one-session single-centre trial based on a mixed-methods approach inspired by the Obesity-Related Behavioral Intervention Trials (ORBIT) framework for the design (Phase Ib) of digital interventions and their preliminary testing (Phase IIa).
