Perioperative Anxiety clinical trials at University of California Health
1 research study open to eligible people
open to eligible people ages 18-75
We will investigate whether the use of Virtual Reality (VR) preoperatively and intraoperatively can help treat pain and anxiety, as measured by patient feedback, vital signs trends, and the amounts of anesthetics, pain medications and anxiolytics used during surgical procedures. The VR intervention will be studied during short hand surgeries normally performed using local anesthesia and sedation.
Our lead scientists for Perioperative Anxiety research studies include Sakura Kinjo, M.D..
