Abstract [en]

Previous studies have shown positive results on the use of music as postoperative pain relief. Quantitative studies have examined the effect of music on rated pain and otherparameters such as anxiety, relaxation and blood-pressure. The purpose of this study was to investigate the expectations and experiences of patients and nurses onimplementing music as postoperative pain relief in an orthopedic unit

Qualitative design and semi-structured interviews were used to examine expectations and experiences. Five patients and five nurses in the unit were interviewed.

Four themes developed during the data-analysis. These themes were “Expectations on music as postoperative pain relief”, “Experiences of music as postoperative pain relief”,“Effects of music as postoperative pain relief” and “Continued implementation of musicas postoperative pain relief”. A general theme was distraction. Both patients and nurses described the distracting ability of music. Music distracted the patients from both painand the unfamiliar environment and provided relaxation.

According to the results of this study there is a connection between the distracting effect of the music and pain relief. More research needs to be done to examine how musicaffects the human body and mind.
