A study has found that surgery patients listening to tunes like Someone Like You have less anxiety about the operation AND as a result of being calmer, "recover more quickly."
John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford examined the stress levels of 96 patients and found levels in those listening to enjoyable music were 29% lower than those laying in silence. Study leader Hazim Sadideen explained:
"Undergoing surgery can be a stressful experience for patients and finding ways of making them more comfortable should be our goal as clinicians. There are also good medical reasons — calmer patients may cope better with pain and recover more quickly."
Sometimes music, just like laughter, really is the best medicine.
