In addition, fear almost inevitably arises to various medical manipulations: diagnostic and medical procedures. The higher the degree of traumatic diagnostic procedures or therapeutic manipulations, the higher the level of fear (in. V. Sybolkin), especially since these manipulations are associated with the penetration of the patient’s intimate zone.
