    A lot of adults worry that spending too much time playing video games isn’t good for a kid’s health. But some doctors have noticed that kids who bring their handheld game players to the hospital seem less worried about being there. These patients also seem to experience less pain when they are concentrating on a superhero adventure or car race.
    At the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, Maryland, young patients are finding hospital visits easier to deal with, thanks to a test program called the Hospital-based Online Pediatric Environment (HOPE).
    Patients in HOPE have a life-threatening condition where their kidneys (肾) no longer filter (过滤) waste from their blood. To get their blood cleaned, these kids must be hooked up to dialysis machines (透析器) at the hospital three times a week, for at least three hours each time.
     HOPE allows kids to play online sports, racing, and adventure games with each other. Eventually they will be able to connect with kids in other hospitals who are undergoing the same procedure.
