Medical procedures represent some of the most stressful and potentially traumatizing aspects of pediatric health care. From immunizations to catheterizations to even "simple" ear exams, young children often demonstrate fear and anxiety and struggle to hold still. One proven technique used to comfort children during medical procedures, making the procedure easier for child, family, and medical staff, involves the use of comfort positions or comfort holds. This video, created by the Child Life Department at Dell Children's Medical Center, demonstrates the effectiveness of positioning for procedures and provides examples of specific techniques.
