Cognitive/Attentional Distraction in the Control of Conditioned Nausea in Pediatric Cancer Patients Receiving Chemotherapy.
Redd, William H.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v55 n3 p391-95 Jun 1987
Investigated use of cognitive/attentional distraction (via commercially available video games) to control conditioned nausea in pediatric cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Video game-playing resulted in significantly less nausea. The introduction and withdrawal of the opportunity to play video games produced significant changes (reduction and exacerbation, respectively) in nausea. Video games also reduced self-reporoted anxiety. (Author/KS)
