Screen-Based Distraction Tool for Preoperative Preparation
Preoperative anxiety in pediatric patients undergoing surgical procedures has been previously shown to increase the likelihood of family stressors, post- operative pain, agitation, sleep disturbances, and negative behavioral changes. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of a bed mounted Video Projection unit (i.e. BERT, Bedside EnterRtainment Theater) is more effective than the use of a standard of care tablet (i.e., iPad) for preventing anxiety before surgery among children undergoing anesthesia and surgery. The anticipated primary outcome will be reduction of child's anxiety in the preoperative and operating room setting and compliance with mask induction.
