Surprise, delight, and comfort Heart Rhythm 2021 attendees with a healthy dose of endorphins. Studies have shown that visits from [therapy] dogs lower anxiety, stress and heart and lung pressure among heart failure patients. Additionally, the power of touch appears to be a major component of this “effect”; several studies show that blood pressure goes down when a person pets a dog due to the calming effect of the interaction. Visiting canines also provide relief to healthcare providers working under enormous stress. A take-home experience for electrophysiology professionals that can be put into practice at their offices or hospitals as a beneficial physiological therapy for patients and staff.
In today’s high-tech healthcare environment, it is ironic that a puppy’s sloppy kiss can create measurable health benefits. Yet the evidence favoring the health value of pets is so compelling that if pet therapy were a pill, we would not be able to manufacture it fast enough. - Larry Dossey, MD, The Healing Power of Pets
