The Impact of Music on Patients Undergoing Plastic Surgery

According to a study performed in 1997, music can be used as intervention in decreasing anxiety among people. It was stated that sensory inputs similar to music could pave way for pleasure and be developed positively within theatre environment. As a result, it can reduce blood pressure, heart rate, pain and the level of anxiety felt. Also, according to scientific evidence it showed that music reduces not just blood pressure, respiration and heart rate but also, insomnia.

In a more recent study back in 2002, the effectiveness of music was explored as intervention among hospital patients. 29 studies were able to be identified and the review has concluded that music was quite effective in lowering anxiety during normal care delivery. However, this opened for more thorough research as well. The author has anticipated the different uses of music are bound to be uncovered.

Music during Pre- and Post- Operative Procedures

The impact that music has on critically ill patients included remarkable improvements in emotional status, decreases anxiety level as well as in haemodynamic parameters. This study showed that music as a therapeutic modality, relieves anxiety and even pain in patients both before and after the surgery.

Music during Actual Procedure

Listening to music has been studied among patients who were undergoing breast implant Toronto and other elective procedure. This is performed using regional anesthesia in determining its effect on anxiety during the surgery.

In 1995, Cohen and Eisenman studied patients who undergo orthopedic surgery who reported that simply listening to music has helped a lot in making the time pass faster by masking the background noise and diverting attention away from the actual surgical procedure.

The data revealed that patients needed less anesthesia, feel calmer and has stable pulse rate as well as blood pressure. Music can be combined as well with pharmacological intervention and may promote comfort among patients who are undergoing minor plastic surgery procedures.

Music on Modern Day Procedures

Plastic and cosmetic surgeons were aware of these studies, which is also the same reason why many of them have been playing clinically studied music on their clinic to calm and ease their patients.
