Hypnosis in Interventional Electrophysiology

Brief description of study

Hypnosis has already shown to decrease pain and anxiety in different surgical specialities. Nevertheless, its input has never been studied in cardiology. This research is a prospective, monocentric, controlled and randomized study.

Patients over 18 years old and hospitalized for implantation of a pacemaker or ablation of atrial flutter may be included and randomized into one of the arms: placebo or hypnosis.

Global pain and paroxysmal pain peak will be assessed by a visual analogue pain scale. Anxiety will be assessed by a self-administered questionnaire (APAIS) before the procedure and by visual analogue pain scale before and after the procedure.

The aim of this study is to improve the care given to patient undergoing cardiac electrophysiology procedure.
