Nurses at the emergency department of New York-Presbyterian Children's hospital are using iPad to reduce pain and anxiety. "Whether a child comes to us with a broken arm, severe asthma or any medical emergency, we need to do all we can to eliminate the pain they are feeling and get them the care they need," says Bernadette O'Brien, R.N., vice president of operations at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital.

The CCP allows nurses to administer pain relief immediately after pain has been assessed and to administer anaesthetizing gel in anticipation of a suture repair.

IPad usage helps in calming the child so that the procedure may be completed faster and more efficiently, and by reducing or eliminating the need for physical restraint.

Any form of distraction may it be an iPad, a cellphone with games, psp or whatever gadget available, children will lap it up. And this is good.
