ABSTRACT
Surgeons and nurses in the perioperative area have found that music can reduce anxiety, distract patients from pain, and give them a familiar sound upon which to focus during surgery. • Avoid loud music that might offend patients, especially if they are awake for their procedures. • If you provide music players to patients, keep infection control issues in mind as you choose headphones or speakers. • Offer a wide variety of music to appeal to all patients, especially if the music will be played on a personal music player.
