Abstract

We used a combined videotaped coping model and film distraction technique to reduce the distres of patients undergoing hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy. Five experimental patients ranging in age from 34 to 68 were shown a videotape that depicted a coping model and then viewed a feature film as a distraction during their first exposure to HBO. In comparison with 6 control patients ranging in age from 17 to 53, the experimental patients experienced less arousal and rated themselves as; significantly more relaxed before treatment, completed significantly more prescribed treatments without complication, and required fewer days in the hospital. These results support the use of modeling and distraction techniques as a cost-effective means of reducing distress and improving patients' compliance with HBO therapy.
