Needle phobia has had an overwhelming rise in prevalence in the past two decades. Dr. Baxter’s session discusses evidence-based causes and consequences of needle fear, and dives into multiple approaches to alleviate both needle pain and fear. In addition, the factors contributing to vasovagal symptoms with needle procedures will be discussed, as well as the best current data on ways to identify and address the needle anxious patient to facilitate faster procedures and greater adherence.
