Time.com reported about clinicians using music to soothe cats while in surgery. The purpose was to see if they could lessen the amount of anesthesia and let the music pick up the slack.
They played both classical music and AC/DC. Of course, the classical music proved to be more relaxing for the felines. But my question is: can we do this for humans? Would it work the same way?
…In humans, music confers numerous benefits. An extensive body of research indicates that these benefits extend even to patients under general anesthesia, and include reduced perceived pain, anxiety and stress.
I think music is a legitimate coping method. Stressed about a job interview? Listen to Beethoven. Worried about finances? Turn on your favorite song.
Trust me, music can help if you let it.
