Patients Operations More Relaxed Look Classical Music

Surgery itself can cause stress for the patient. Now known to listen to classical music can help patients feel more relaxed when he had surgery under local anesthesia.

One study found that playing classical music can become a routine part of every operation, because it is beneficial for patients by making it more relaxed and comfortable so that patients recover faster from its operations.

Mozart's music is not the only composer that were included in this study, but researchers are also using other soothing music such as Beethoven, Vivaldi, Bach and Frank Sinatra to easy listening during the operation.

"Undergoing surgery can be a stressful experience for patients, and found a way to make it more convenient should be our goal as physicians," said Hazim Sadideen, a plastic surgeon from John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, as quoted by the Telegraph, Thursday (29/3 / 2012).

In addition Sadideen said there are medical reasons that the use of music can make the patient more quiet so it is possible he could tolerate the pain better and recover faster.

The study, published in the journal Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons involved 96 patients who underwent minor surgery and some were given randomly and there is no music. All patients were awake during surgery and given only a local anesthetic.

Obtained about half of the participants reported lower levels of anxiety and respiratory rates are more stable than other patients. But the researchers did not evaluate the music which gives a greater effect.

"But this study was small scale it needs to do more research to measure the effects of music on patients so that surgery could determine whether this could be part of the standard practice or not," said Sadideen.
