Cartoons can alleviate pain for children

Italian researchers have found that watching cartoons will help to distract children’s attention and alleviate the pain in the process of surgery or therapy. The researchers distributed 169 children aged from 7 to 12 into 3 groups. The first group did not receive any distracting measures during treatment; the second group completed the treatment under the conciliation of their mothers; the third group had been watching cartoons in the treatment. The result showed that the pain of children in the first group is 3 times as much as the children in the third group, the second group suffered more pain than those children watching cartoons, though it is better than the first group.
