- Music Therapy: Pain Post Major Surgery, Effect of Music Therapy
Globally two hundred million major surgeries occur each year and forty one percent patients experience postoperative pain. Inadequate postoperative pain management causes many patients to have complications. Music therapy as a non-pharmacological management can help reduce pain by increasing endorphins release to inhibit transmission of pain. This study aimed to determine effect of music therapy on pain scale of post major surgery. This study uses quasi-experimental method with nonequivalent control group design on fifty respondents by purposive sampling which is divided into two groups. Respondents in the intervention group received music therapy for fifteen minutes while the control group received standard therapy. The pretest and posttest pain scales of both study groups were measured using the Numeric Rating Scale. The data analysis of this research was conducted using t test. Majority of respondents were young adults, female, and had no surgery history. Significant differences occurred on posttest pain scale between intervention and control group. Music therapy has an effect on reducing pain scale so it is advisable to use in post major surgery patients.
