Abstract

A study to assess the effectiveness of Mozart music therapy on post-operative pain among children undergone surgery at Selected Hospital, Chennai. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY 1. To assess the pre-test level of post-operative pain among children in both experimental and control group. 2. To assess the post-test level of post-operative pain among children in both experimental and control group. 3. To assess the effectiveness of Mozart Music Therapy on post operative pain among children in both experimental and control group. METHODS A true experimental design was adopted for this study. A review of literature was done on studies related to benefits of music on post operative pain, effect of music therapy on pain, benefits of Mozart music and Nursing care and pain management. The study was conducted in Chettinad Hospital, Kelambakkam, Chennai. The tool used was Wong- Baker FACES Pain Rating Scale. The sample size for this study was 60 postoperative children (30 in experimental; 30 in control group) selected using simple random sampling technique with lottery method. The intervention given in this study was Mozart Music for 3 consecutive days. Pre test of pain in experimental and control group was assessed using Wong-Baker pain scale. Each hospitalized children after surgery on the first postoperative day was given Mozart music therapy at the duration of 10 minutes for 3 consecutive days. The post test of pain in experimental and control group were assessed on the third day using Wong-Baker pain scale. The data was analysed and interpreted based on the objectives using descriptive and inferential statistics. MAJOR FINDINGS OF THE STUDY The study findings revealed that the frequency and percentage distribution of pre-test level of pain in experimental group, 30(100%) were in moderate pain level & none of them were in no pain level, mild pain level & severe pain level. In control group, 30(100%) were in moderate pain level. The frequency and percentage distribution of post-test level of pain in experimental group, 8(26.67%) were in moderate pain level & 22(73.33%) were in mild pain level. In control group, 30(100%) were in moderate pain level. The study findings also revealed that the pre-test mean and standard deviation were 5.43 and 0.50 respectively and in the post-test mean and standard deviation were 3.10 and 1.06 respectively. The findings also revealed that there was a significant association with one selected demographic variable. Thus it is proved that after the administration of Mozart Music Therapy the post operative pain was considerably reduced among children who underwent surgery and this clearly indicates that Mozart Music therapy was found to be effective in reducing the pain among children in the experimental group. CONCLUSION Mozart music therapy is an effective intervention in reducing the pain among children who has underwent surgery. From a nursing perspective, this intervention provides a challenge and an opportunity for nurses to blend alternative therapies in managing postoperative pain among children. The study is focused on Mozart music as it appears to be an effective non-invasive, non-pharmacological and relatively cheap intervention for postoperative pain management, and this measure will be considered as a diversional strategy to reduce pain experienced by children who have underwent surgery. 4. To associate the post-test level of post-operative pain among children in experimental group with the selected demographic variables.
