Buzzy – Pain Relief for Pediatric Vaccinations

In 2009, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development  (NICHD) supported the development of Buzzy and recently added updated information to the National Institutes of Health website.  Part of the update was to acknowledge that the U.S. Small Business Administration named Pain Care Labs a winner of its 2020 Tibbetts Awards.

 

The original NIH RePorter posted all the project details  including the abstract. The first few lines of the abstract states, “Needle sticks are the most frequent and most distressing medical procedure children experience. Resultant needle phobia decreases parents’ compliance with immunizations and affects patients’ subsequent interactions with health care systems, resulting in delayed steroide anabolisant achat belgique diagnoses, refusal to donate blood, and even death. Current products rely on health care professionals to voluntarily use messy, ineffective, and time-consuming interventions for a pain many consider insignificant. An immediately effective reusable pain relief device available directly to consumers could reduce morbidity and suffering worldwide.”

 

Now 11 years later, we are dealing with a global pandemic and we must get as many people vaccinated as quickly as possible. Dr. Baxter recently testified to HHS about the growing number of adults with a fear of needles and the resultant impact on the health of the individual and their community.  The fear of needles and resultant stress can deca durabolin acquisto affect a person’s willingness to engage with healthcare professionals and can impact whether they or their children keep up-to-date on recommended vaccinations.
