Beneficial effects of hypnosis and adverse effects of empathic attention dur. percutaneous tumor tx


PURPOSE: To determine how hypnosis and empathic attention during percutaneous tumor treatments affect pain, anxiety, drug use, and adverse events. MATERIALS AND METHODS: For their tumor embolization or radiofrequency ablation, 201 patients were randomized to receive standard care, empathic attention with defined behaviors displayed by an additional provider, or self-hypnotic relaxation including the defined empathic attention behaviors. All had local anesthesia and access to intravenous medication. Main outcome measures were pain and anxiety assessed every 15 minutes by patient self-report, medication use (with 50 mug fentanyl or 1 mg midazolam counted as one unit), and adverse events, defined as occurrences requiring extra medical attention, including systolic blood pressure fluctuations (> or =50 mm Hg change to >180 mm Hg or <105 mm Hg), vasovagal episodes, cardiac events, and respiratory impairment. RESULTS: Patients treated with hypnosis experienced significantly less pain and anxiety than those in the standard care and empathy groups at several time intervals and received significantly fewer median drug units (mean, 2.0; interquartile range [IQR], 1-4) than patients in the standard (mean, 3.0; IQR, 1.5-5.0; P = .0147) and empathy groups (mean, 3.50; IQR, 2.0-5.9; P = .0026). Thirty-one of 65 patients (48%) in the empathy group had adverse events, which was significantly more than in the hypnosis group (eight of 66; 12%; P = .0001) and standard care group (18 of 70; 26%; P = .0118). CONCLUSIONS: Procedural hypnosis including empathic attention reduces pain, anxiety, and medication use. Conversely, empathic approaches without hypnosis that provide an external focus of attention and do not enhance patients' self-coping can result in more adverse events. These findings should have major implications in the education of procedural personnel.

Unleashing your Inner Mastery

Let’s face it. More than likely you have the same brain and same physiology as the most prodigious genius and top Olympic athlete. Yes, an inventory of your brain sectors, organs, and muscle groups show a surprising similarity to the top performers. Yet, why haven’t you achieved such greatness? This is a question that I’ve asked for several decades. It surprised me what I discovered.

Our first obstacle is that each and every one of us is programmed to be mediocre. Think about this for a moment. Back when you were in school, two groups of people were often criticized. These were the...

Make Worrying at Thing of the Past and Free your Future

If you are overly obsessed about what may or may not happen tomorrow, you are totally missing the enjoyment of living each day of your wonderful life and depriving yourself of the excitement that your future may bring. Worrying never solved anything. In fact, it is probably is responsible for making your worst fears a reality. Having a superior human brain means that you possess the wonderful abilities to anticipate what may happen and simulate it in your mind thousands of times before it actually happens. By the way, clinical hypnotherapists call this suggestion and imagination. These...

Cigarette smoking and hypnosis

For many people, cigarette smoking began at an early age. Usually this habit starts during a person’s teen years although we have seen it start even earlier. Normally, peer pressure or the influence or the example of parents was somehow involved in the decision to smoke the first cigarette. Also, depending on a person’s age, they may have been influenced by advertising, which was legal at one time in America. Once this “social reason” for smoking initiated the act, there are two basic reasons why the act of smoking became and addiction. First is the addictive nature of nicotine. Nicotine...
