MUSIC HELPS SURGERY PATIENTS

Posted: 08.10.2016
There have been a number of studies regarding the power of music to soothe and calm in surgical situations. Researchers recently studied the effects of music played before, during and after surgery. They found that music played at any time, but particularly before, can reduce the pain and anxiety patients feel afterward. This even includes patients who were under general anesthetic. It may also reduce the need for pain medications during recovery and improve patient satisfaction. The music didn't affect the length of their stay in the hospital. The next time you need a medical procedure, ask your doctor if you can bring your favorite music to play beforehand.
