Clinical Trial Summary

In the current study, The investigators aim is to test the distraction affect of "Virtual Reality" (VR) technology on pain and anxiety in pregnant women who undergo through an induction of labour with an extra-amniotic balloon catheter


Clinical Trial Description

Insertion of Extra-Amniotic Balloon (EAB) is a recommend mechanical method of Induction of labour. This method of induction causes the cervix to dialate through mechanical pressure on the cervix. During the procedure of insertion the women is lying on her back. Insertion of EAB is performed by conventional means. The insertion of EAB can involve discomfort, pain and anxiety before and during the procedure. While there are numerous studies which describe interventional, pharmacological and non-pharmacological means for pain and anxiety relieve during latent and active phase of labour, there is no sufficient evidence for pain and anxiety relieve during the pre-labour and through induction of labour period. The "Virtual Reality" (VR) technology is a simple non-invasive technology. The advantage of VR is that it can distract the patient's attention from pain and anxiety by exposure to a virtual reality environment. This technology uses processes of sight, and hearing that requires attention. Many studies have already investigated the use of VR technology in various medical procedures, such as dental treatment, infusion, pediatric treatment, burns, trauma, chemotherapy, diagnostic hysteroscopies and other medical procedures that are common to the patient's experience of pain and anxiety. ;
