Listening to music appears to reduce anxiety and the use of sedatives among ICU patients on a ventilator.
Therapists put together a play list of each patient's favorite music, and allowed them to listen at any time throughout the day.
Five days later, these patients had anxiety scores 36% lower than those who had no music.
They also required two fewer doses of sedatives by the fifth day, than the usual care patients.
