Why Take Your Smartphone to Surgery?

11/9/2015 | By: The Medix team

A review of dozens of papers proves our basic intuition: Music has healing properties. Guess which album helped the researcher herself cope with pain while going through surgery?

Bob Marley once said: "One good thing about music is that when it hits you, you feel no pain". Turns out that he really knew what he was talking about. A recent paper published in the renowned Lancet Medical Journal has shown that listening to music greatly helped surgical patients.
 
Those that listened to music both before and after surgery were calmer, better at coping with pain and therefore required fewer pain management drugs. Furthermore, a noticeable positive effect was recorded among patients that had music playing in the background while under anesthesia. 
 
The researchers reviewed 73 previous trials testing the effect of music on over 7,000 patients. These patients were being treated at various times surrounding surgery, and had listened to mostly soothing and relaxing music. Patients from the different studies were divided into five categories; music listening, undisturbed bed rest, headphones with no music, white noise and routine care.
 
The researchers reached some very interesting insights by comparing the results of these different groups. The patients that had listened to music of any kind experienced less pain and lower anxiety levels than the rest of the patients, causing them to consume less pain medication. The overall length of hospital stay for the different groups was unchanged. however, the improved experience resulting from music is a significant finding.
 
One of the lead researchers writing the paper experienced the advantage of music first hand. Dr. Catherine Meads explained that Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" helped her recover from a hip replacement surgery. According to Dr. Meads, physicians don’t prescribe music to patients because many are skeptics, which is a shame seeing as music is a cheap and noninvasive approach that can be easily implemented for patients everywhere.
