    Music for pain relief
    Cochrane Pain, Palliative and Supportive Care Group via The Cochrane Library    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    The efficacy of music for the treatment of pain has not been established. This research was done to evaluate the effect of music on acute, chronic or cancer pain intensity, pain relief, and analgesic requirements. We searched The Cochrane Library, MEDLINE, EMBASE, PsycINFO, LILACS and the references in retrieved manuscripts. There was no language restriction. We included randomized controlled trials that evaluated the effect of music on any type of pain in children or adults. We excluded trials that reported results of concurrent non-pharmacological therapies.

    Data was extracted by two independent review authors. We calculated the mean difference in pain intensity levels, percentage of patients with at least 50 percent pain relief, and opioid requirements. We converted opioid consumption to morphine equivalents. To explore heterogeneity, studies that evaluated adults, children, acute, chronic, malignant, labor, procedural or experimental pain were evaluated separately, as well as those studies in which patients chose the type of music.
