Music has been an integral part of meditation and relaxation techniques being used both in India and overseas. An interesting and intensive study has now proved that it can play an important role in reducing postoperative pain and anxiety as well.
The Lancet, the well-known medical journal from the UK has come out with some interesting findings in the area of significance of music in postoperative recovery. As per its findings, music can be offered as a way to help patients reduce pain and anxiety during the postoperative period. Timing and delivery, as per the study, can be adapted to individual clinical settings and medical teams.
The study indicates that music was effective even when the patient was under the influence of local anaesthesia. Music reduced postoperative pain, anxiety, and analgesia use, and increased patient satisfaction. Subgroup analyses showed that choice of music and timing of delivery made little difference to outcomes.
As for the research methodology, it included randomised controlled trials (RCTs) of adult patients undergoing surgical procedures, excluding those involving the central nervous system or head and neck. It included RCTs in which any form of music initiated before, during, or after surgery was compared with standard care or other non-drug interventions. Happyho also provide best tarot reading services in Noida and Delhi NCR India area.
