Evaluation of Technology-Based Stress Reduction Techniques Prior to Vascular Access

Preprocedural, preoperative, and prevascular access anxiety in pediatric patients has been previously shown to increase the likelihood of family stressors, postoperative pain, agitation, sleep disturbances, and negative behavioral changes. The purpose of this study is to determine if a non-invasive distracting devices (Virtual Reality headset) is more effective than the standard of care (i.e., no technology based distraction) for preventing anxiety before vascular access among hospitalized children undergoing vascular access prior to anesthesia, procedures, surgery, blood draws, port access, or peripheral IV placement. The anticipated primary outcome will be reduction of child's anxiety during and after vascular access.
