The pain and the effect of anxiety management
in support of music in mechanically ventilated intensive care
patient is to identify through a variety of physiological variables.
Methods: This study was undertaken in 2015 with Glaskow
Coma Scale (GKS) 6E-9E, 40 intensive care unit patients between
the ages of 18-65. Classical Turkish Music was listened
to the patients with 30 minutes consecutive for 3 days at the
same oclock (10:00 am). Patients anxiety and pain scores
were assessed by physiological parameters such as heart rate
(HR), peripheral oxygen saturation (SpO2), mean blood pressure
(MBP), tidal volume (TV) and respiratory rate (f) in mechanical
ventilator before and during music for 30 minutes.
Results: Patients were compared with Mann Whitney U test
for 3 days before and after music values, HR, SpO2 and
respiratory f were statistically significant (p< 0.05), but there
was no significant difference between MBP and TV values.
When Face Skala was compared with Mann Whitney U test,
a significant difference was found in % 95 confidence interval
Conclusion: We concluded that music therapy can be used
effectively in the non-drug control of pain and reducing the
anxiety and the pain in intensive care patients. We expect to
be among the routine intensive care practices as non-pharmacologic
adjuvant in the future because of the increased
patient comfort and lack of side effects.
