The effect of eye movement with desensitization and reprocessing on anxiety induced by dressing pain in burn patients

Description

Introduction:
Burn is an injury that can results in pain in patients. On the other hand, burn treatment measures also lead to pain and anxiety among these patients. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of eye movement with desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) on the anxiety due dressing pain in patients with burn.

Methods:
The present study was a randomized clinical trial that was carried out among burn patients hospitalized in Shahid Rajaei Hospital, Qazvin. Subjects were selected using purposeful sampling method. Then, the patients were randomly assigned in control and treatment group with 30 patients in each group; s with the usage of minimization method. Data were collected using the Burn Standard Pain Anxiety Scale (BSPAS). Desensitization method with eye movements and reprocessing was performed to the treatment group for around 45 to 90 minutes. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics including paired-t- test, t-test, and chi square.

Results:
The mean of anxiety in the treatment group was 51.07±4.81 before the intervention, whereas it was 38.40±2.05 after the intervention. The difference was statistically significant (P<0.001). The mean of anxiety in the control group before and after the intervention were 50.03 and 53.20, respectively. It was also statistically significant (P<0.001).

Conclusion:
The findings indicated that the desensitization method with eye movements and reprocessing decrease patient's anxiety during treatment procedures. The use of EMRD in burn patients will lead to improved health and reduce their anxiety.
