Researchers at Queen Mary University of London said the patients who had listened to music had been less anxious after their surgery and had needed less pain relief. Listening to music before, after and during an operation can help reduce pain, according to a review. Writing in the Lancet , they said music had been effective even while patients had been under general anaesthetic.

 

 

  • The scientists want hospitals to suggest in NHS information leaflets that patients bring music devices and playlists into hospital with them.
  • The results, published in The Lancet journal, found patients were significantly less anxious after surgery and reported more satisfaction after listening to music.
  • The researchers are following up this work with a study at the Royal London Hospital in the autumn.
