Housecall for Health: Surgery-Soothing Music
Going under the knife? You may want to ask your doctor to crank up the tunes, it could help you stay calm while on the operating table.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
Anxious about an upcoming surgery? You may want to try turning on some music. A new study finds that playing music during minor surgery helps reduce anxiety in patients and even improves healing time.
In trials at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, surgery patients under local anesthetic in operating rooms with music playing had a lower respiratory rate than those with no music.
