Music Can Be Helpful In Reducing Anxiety of the Patients, Say Researchers

A recent research has found that music can help patients in recovering swifter after surgery. It is not for the very first time when music is said to have a healing touch. Previous studies have showed that music is helpful in preventing anxiety and depression.

The recent research was conducted by the researchers of John Radcliffe Hospital. For the research, 96 patients were recruited who were divided in two groups. The first group of patients was exposed to music at the time of surgery while the other group had a normal operation room environment.

In both the groups the patients had to go plastic surgery, which was traumatic. The researchers measured the anxiety of the patients at the time of operation and after the operations. During the research, it was found that the first group had lower anxiety level as compared to second group.

The findings of the research have been published in the Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons. The lead researcher of the study, Hazim Sadideen said, “Undergoing surgery can be a stressful experience for patients and finding ways of making them more comfortable should be our goal as clinicians”.

Although the research has showed that playing music at the time of operation is beneficial for the patients, it has been recommended that further studies should be conducted before drawing a concrete conclusion.

The researchers have further suggested that playing music in the operation theater could also help in relaxing the surgeons. The researchers have recommended that classic music should be played so that the patients could be helped with anxiety. It is quite normal for a patient to get anxious at the time of surgery. Therefore, playing music at the time of operation is highly recommended.
