AbstractPurpose Most cataract surgery is now performed under local anaesthesia on a day-case basis. As patients are fully conscious during the procedure, it is important that they remain still. There are a variety of reasons why patients may need to move, and it is important that the surgeon is made aware that this may happen. Some centres offer a nurse's hand as a means of perioperative patient communication. We sought to study the safety and efficacy of using an electronic patient-controlled… Expand
Effectiveness of Intra Operative Hand Holding on Anxiety and Physiological Parameters Among Patients Undergoing Cataract Surgery
TLDR
It was found that hand holding was effective in reducing blood pressure and heart rate except the respiratory rate of patients undergoing cataract surgery and most of the patients perceived intra operative hand holding as beneficial in relieving anxiety. Expand
Use of Simultaneous Bilateral Cataract Surgery (SBCS) to Optimize Parameters Affecting the Subjective Perception of the Procedure
TLDR
SBCS can be used to optimize the parameters of cataract surgery and a positive effect of intracameral anesthesia on subjective perception of surgery is noted. Expand
Risk factors for intraoperative hypertension in patients undergoing cataract surgery under topical anaesthesia.
TLDR
A specific at-risk population may benefit from targeted preoperative interventions for reducing intraoperative anxiety and hypertension in patients undergoing cataract surgery under topical anaesthesia. Expand
The power of words: sources of anxiety in patients undergoing local anaesthetic plastic surgery.
TLDR
Technical jargon used by surgical staff can elevate anxiety levels among patients who are awake for their operation, and careful consideration of the words used may reduce this, particularly in female patients. Expand
Conscious surgery: influence of the environment on patient anxiety.
TLDR
Focusing care on managing the intra-operative experience and providing anaesthetic information in advance might help limit anxiety and expel the apparent misapprehensions associated with conscious surgery. Expand

Effects of handholding and providing information on anxiety in patients undergoing percutaneous vertebroplasty.
TLDR
Handholding and spoken information provided during a surgical intervention to mitigate psychological anxiety, and handholding to mitigate physiological anxiety can be used in nursing interventions with patients undergoing percutaneous vertebroplasty. Expand
Effect of hand-holding and conversation alone or with midazolam premedication on preoperative anxiety in adult patients—A randomised controlled trial
TLDR
A combination of hand-holding and conversation and midazolam is best for allaying preoperative anxiety in patients undergoing laparoscopic surgeries than either method alone. Expand
Conscious sedation during ophthalmic surgery under local anesthesia.
TLDR
There is no single ideal sedative agent, regime or protocol that can completely cater to the wide spectrum of ophthalmic procedures performed in a heterogeneous patient population and balanced sedative techniques should only be used after careful consideration of patient profile, the type of eye surgery, and patient and surgeon preferences.

The development of a six-item short-form of the state scale of the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI).
TLDR
Two studies are reported describing the development of a short-form of the state scale of the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) for use in circumstances where the full-form is inappropriate, and the six-item version offers a briefer and just as acceptable scale for subjects while maintaining results that are comparable to those obtained using the full form.
