Personally speaking, it will not be accurate in giving health care to patients. However, there are some virtual health care professionals who are doing it now. In fact, one of my friends is doing this as a nurse. It is a good option for those patients who cannot go out, especially now that we are in a pandemic situation.

VR pediatrics is all about helping children get through their treatments as quickly and painlessly as possible. This starts with simple procedures, such as taking blood samples. While this is a routine measure, some children could be scared and feel some pain while the blood samples are being taken. In order to alleviate the fear and pain, doctors develop virtual reality solution that immerses the children in a game or other VR experience which releases endorphins and an opioid response, which helps relieve the pain. Also, the virtual reality distracts the child so that the procedure is over before they even know it.
