The Effect of Complementary Music Therapy on the Patient’s Post-operative State Anxiety, Pain Control and Environmental Noise Satisfaction

Abstract: 

Postoperative pain is difficult to manage with analgesia alone. Complementary interventions such as music therapy provide a level of distraction, thus promoting comfort. In this study, decreased pain and environmental noise were demonstrated, without diminishing state anxiety, in a group of postoperative patients.
