Aug. 2015:  
THE LANCET - often described as one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world - has August 13. 2015 published a new review article focusing on how music can help patients reduce pain and anxiety during the postoperative period. The article "Music as an aid for postoperative recovery in adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis" provides an interesting overview and insight into how music can improve recovery after surgical procedures.
The authors: Jenny Hole, Martin Hirsch, Elizabeth Ball, Catherine Meads has out of 4261 scientific studies chosen 72 previously published research projects describing randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of adult patients undergoing surgical procedures. They included selected RCTs in which any form of music initiated before, during, or after surgery was compared with standard care or other non-drug interventions.
Among the 72 chosen articles for review are 5 describing research with MusiCure, including articles by Nilsson, Fredriksson, Weeks, Gravesen and Sommer, previously published in European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing, Journal of Clinical Nursing, Intensive and Critical Care Nursing, Heart & Lung – The journal of Acute and Critical Care and Acta Anaesthesiologica Scandinavia. Among the findings in this article are evidence showing that music could reduce postoperative pain, anxiety and increase patient satisfaction - read the complete article here.
