Music Soothes Pain after Surgery R


esearchers from the Louis Armstrong Center for Music and Medicine at Mount


Sinai Hospital, in New York City, studied the impact of music therapy on 60 patients that had undergone spinal fusion surgery. Half received a 30-minute music therapy session, along with standard postoperative care, within 72 hours of surgery. The other half received only standard care. The scientists used the visual analog


scale to measure pain before and after music therapy in both groups concurrently. The patients receiving music therapy experienced average pain level reductions


from 6.2 to 5.09, while the control group averaged slight increases in pain, from 5.2 to 5.87. “The degree of change in the music group is notable for having been


achieved by non-pharmacologic means, with little chance of adverse effects,” explains Center Director and study co-author Joanne Loewy. “Pain is subjective and personal, and warrants an individualized approach to care. Certified, licensed music therapists can tailor treatment to each patient’s musical preferences and address their pain level.”


Women Live Longer When Surrounded by Greenery


R


esearchers from the Harvard


T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, in Boston, followed 108,630 U.S. women enrolled in the Nurses’ Health Study between 2000 and


2008, comparing their mortality rates with the amount of vegetation around their homes. The researchers also accounted for related


risk factors such as age, socioeconomic status, race and ethnicity, and smoking behav- iors. They concluded that subjects living in the greenest areas had a 12 percent lower mortality rate than those living in the least lush areas during the study period.
