Music has been found effective for acute pain in conditions other than labor. However only a few studies have been done to test the effect of music on labor pain; the results were inconsistent and had methodological limitations, measurement problems and small sample sizes. This study has an adequate sample size and methodological improvement. The purpose of this randomized controlled trial is to examine the effects of music on sensation and distress of pain in Thai primiparous women during the active phase of labor. The gate control theory of pain is used as a framework. Randomization with a computerized minimization program will be used to assign subjects to the music group and the control group. The sample size will be 104 primiparas who complete the three hours of the study. Three hours of soft sedative music without lyrics will be used with the women in the music group starting in the early active phase of labor. Sensation and distress of pain will be measured with dual 100 mm Visual Analogue Scales at the end of each hour during the three hours of the study. One-way repeated measures ANOVA and repeated measures ANCOVA while controlling for pretest scores and identified covariates will be used to analyze sensory and affective pain scores over three hourly points. The use of music is expected to result in less pain and lower analgesic intake and a longer time until the first analgesic is given during the three hours of the study. If the effect of music in decreasing pain is supported, nurses and women will have an evidence-based intervention to use for relieving labor pain.
