Perioperative Pain clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Perioperative pain is pain you feel before, during, or after a surgery. UCSF is conducting a clinical trial to see if using virtual reality (VR) before and during surgery can help with pain and anxiety. The study will look at whether VR can decrease pain and anxiety during the surgery.
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.
