Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Arm one uses Virtual Reality Hypnosis post hypnotic suggestions to reduce pain durng wound care procedures.
Behavioral: using VR hypnosis/distraction and audio hypnosis
a between subject comparison using VR hypnosis and VR distraction and audio hypnosis for pain control
Experimental: 2
Arm two uses Virtual Reality distraction that is administered at times other than during burn care procedure to control for both for attention and high technology.
Behavioral: using VR hypnosis/distraction and audio hypnosis
a between subject comparison using VR hypnosis and VR distraction and audio hypnosis for pain control
Experimental: 3
Arm three use Audio administered Hypnosis without the visual technology.
Behavioral: using VR hypnosis/distraction and audio hypnosis
a between subject comparison using VR hypnosis and VR distraction and audio hypnosis for pain control
