The Effectiveness of Music in Patient Recovery

Does music help patients recover faster?

Music affects the anxiety of patients and mood of patients.

Music might affect the respiratory rate of patients, sedation needs of patients during procedures, analgesia needs of patients during procedures, tolerance during procedures, patients’ perception of pain, and heart rate of patients.

Music does not affect the anxiety of patients during procedures, respiratory rate of patients during procedures, heart rate of patients during procedures, nor post-operative length of stay.

No research exists to support music’s effect of the mood of patients during procedures or tolerance of patients during procedures.
