Abstract [en]

Patients that have been undergoing surgery often experience pain and anxiety. Pain relief can be problematic because of the side effects and complications that may occur. This leads to a prolonged recovery phase. Music therapy has long been used as an alternative treatment, it is useful from an economic point of view and no side effects have emerged. However, few studies conducted to evaluate its clinical efficacy. The purpose of this literature study was to describe if music as a complementary treatment method can alleviate post-operative pain, anxiety and if any physiological effects occur in the patient. Literature search was performed in the databases Cinahl, Pubmed, Psychinfo and the search base Elin@Kalmar. The main result showed that the postoperative pain decreased in eight scientific articles and anxiety in four of the scientific articles. In two articles, results showed that there were no improvement in pain and cause for anxiety on the scale of patients. Some of the articles also examined whether the alternative treatment had any effect on the patient's vital signs such as heart rate and respiratory values. The results were varied, indicating that further research is needed for an efficient evaluation. The authors believe that music therapy is an appropriate alternative treatment which can relieve post-operative pain and anxiety. Music therapy is also seen as a simple, contact-building and cost-effective method in daily nursing work.
