Used during anesthesia, in dental medicine, recovery rooms, sleep-laboratories, as a painkiller
The PSiO technology can be used to replace or reduce painkillers and sedatives that are normally administered alongside local or loco-regional anesthesia to counter stress during surgery. The AUDIO-MEDECINE® series is ideally suited for people about to undergo painful examinations with an uncertain diagnosis, expectant mothers, people suffering from anxiety-driven sleep disorders, and people with heart, gastric or respiratory problems. And this list is by no means exhaustive!
Preventive medicine clinics in Belgian Ministries have already added our techniques to their therapeutic protocol.
*Since 1990, AUDIO-MEDECINE® has been widely used in hospitals in Europe and abroad (Asia, U.S., Latin America, etc.).
In July 1994, our technologies were used in the recovery room of a university hospital in Brussels. 94% of the patients asked for more! Given the excellent results, spending on relaxation equipment doubled in December 1994, only six months after the initial purchase. “Some of the postoperative pain and complications are directly caused by anxiety,” reports the head doctor! The rate of vomiting, which used to be 35% to 40% on average, fell to 12%! Heart-related complications went from 14.4% to 2.3% and respiratory complications dropped from 6% to 0.3%! All things considered, 25% of the patients suffer less!”
In 1989, Dr. Diebold (surgeon) and Dr. Litchinko (anesthetist) were the very first to introduce our anti-stress technologies in surgery. Their experience covers over 10,000 operations where 96% of the patients enthusiastically embraced the technique. As a result, lower doses of analgesics and sedatives were needed alongside anesthesia. In some cases, they were not needed at all!” (RTL TOP SANTE February 1994). Dr. Lisoir and Dr. Litchinko have designed three AUDIO-MEDECINE® recordings to be listened to before, during and after the operation. “There has been a general level of satisfaction:
Patients feel good before, during, and after the operation.
Surgeons can operate without being disturbed by sudden movements caused by patients’ discomfort.
The anesthetist contributes to patient well-being by reducing the doses of toxic drugs. He enriches the therapeutic relationship before and during the operation.
Hospital stays are shorter because patients experience fewer postoperative complications.
With that purpose PSiO has developed a few special programs:
Before the Operation
Stress before an operation is situated on the stress management scale as comparable in importance to the loss of a close relative. Listening to this program helps you to manage this stressful moment especially when you are waiting for your turn, in a queue, or on a bed in an impersonal corridor before going into the operating room. It helps to reduce the necessary doses of anesthetic. So, if you can, it is better to live through these difficult moments in a way that is the least unpleasant.
During the Operation
During a localized operation, patients can sometimes hear the comments of the surgeons and their assistants and this can be disconcerting. Surgeons administer extra sedation intravenously despite all the side effects because the high level of stress for the patients leads to their body moving.
After the Operation
When used directly after the operation, this recording helps to avoid post-operational anguish as well as most of the complications we are familiar with (heartbeat problems, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, shivering, etc.). This material has been used regularly in hospitals after operations since 1994. Various suggestions aimed at optimizing the process of tissue repair such as scarring, and also pain management, make up this recording that can be listened to in the days and weeks after an operation.
Relaxing at the Dentist’s
You are sitting in the dentist’s chair waiting for your dental care and all you have to do is relax. While the dentist is operating for half an hour, or even longer, this recording enables you to spend your time in a pleasant way and to relax while your dentist works calmly. Suggestions help to reduce bleeding and to manage any discomfort or pain, while the level of sensitivity and nervous stress goes down when you are fully relaxed.
Play this program when you are feeling pain or want to reduce or erase chronic pain. Whatever its origin, chronic pain is felt and it evolves according to the emotional state, the way it is experienced, eloped, fought, or appreciated… Man’s first medicine used some efficient psychological techniques to reduce, alter or make pains vanish without necessarily reducing, altering, or making their causes disappear. The content of this recording finds its inspiration in these ancestral techniques while adding the latest audio-medical technologies to them.
Close to the Heart
This recording is intended for those who have been diagnosed or are receiving therapy for one or both breasts and who, at some point, have felt their femininity or their lives as women threatened by the events and their consequences. We now know that scarring and all other forms of healing are intimately related to a person’s emotional state, to their feelings of security and protection, and to feelings of well-being. The phrases, words, and images of this recording have been specially designed to help deal with the particularly stressful situation of a breast operation.
