Acute trauma and hypnosis.


Hypnosis is a valuable adjunct to the management of acute trauma. This is a case presentation of the management of severe burn injuries after fire and explosion on a United States Navy vessel. Hypnosis was used to calm one patient and facilitate intubation. Further suggestions of rapid healing and anxiety control were given. Hypnosis is not only helpful for management, but can be used to decrease the perceived severity of the incident. Patient well-being may also prevent sequelae of stress.
