Friends, everyone says that it’s just a matter of time before music for the patient undergoing surgery is an absolute given! I notice, however, that people are afraid of new things, whether devices or processes. Especially in the medical world these days, hospitals and physicians are fearful of getting sued. The research is there, though, Not only do we have nearly 100 studies that document the benefits of music, including a study on our own headphones and proprietary music, done at the VA hospital here in Louisville, KY!
Here are the most frequently asked questions:
- How much are the headphones? The premium hospital model that can be reused is $247.97. There are price breaks for quantity, of course. The individual headphones that are intended for one patient to use and take home, are $50 with minimum order of 500. These are intended to be issued to each patient at admission and sent home with patient for continued recovery and healing at home.
- What kind of music is on the headphones? The music is lesson-known classical piano music, played by a concert pianist. As a clinical musicologist, I have chosen music that best entrains the heart-rate and breathing to the music in order to induce the relaxation response. We are currently working on a jazz playlist, a New Age playlist, a classical guitar playlist, and a children’s playlist.
