A study at the Health & Sciences Center,
Univseristy of New Mexico added decorative designs
to medical devices and tested the effects they had
on patients of all ages and genders.
Their findings concluded that:
“Adding decorative designs or stickers to medical devices before a procedure significantly reduces aversion, fear, and anxiety, and may be especially
useful for needle-phobic patients.”
“It is likely that decoration of a medical device actually
is a neurophysiologic intervention, resulting in
stimulationof brain areas not usually associated with
the fear, anxiety, and aversion responses caused by viewing medical devices.”
"Stress-reducing IV bags significantly reduced:
aversion by 83%, fear by 53%, & anxiety by 73% [in patients]"
