A questionnaire was developed to assess the benefits of the guided imagery program to those who elected to participate in it, and, in addition, data from the hospital financial cost-accounting database were collected and matched to the two groups of patients.
Analysis of the data revealed that patients who completed the guided imagery program had a shorter average length of stay, a decrease in average direct pharmacy costs, and a decrease in average direct pain medication costs while maintaining high overall patient satisfaction with the care and treatment provided.
Guided imagery is now used as a standard, complementary therapy to help reduce anxiety, pain, and length of stay among the cardiac surgery patients at Inova Fairfax.

Let’s face it. For each and every one of us there is something or someone who inspires in us a level of anxiety and dread, which can reasonably be referred to as fear. For some it can be the thought of a snake, spider, dogs, or even wide open spaces. Others constantly live in utter misery as they tend to avoid many of the sights, sounds, and occurrences of modern-day life. What causes this and do we have a choice?
As humans we have a superior ability to anticipate and simulate. When we anxiously await the arrival of a person who we love or are overly concerned about the possibility...
