Abstract:
Purpose: The study was conducted to examine the effect of live harp music on hemodynamic variables in patients recovering from open-heart surgery and perceived levels of stress and perception of live harp music of RNs working in the CPACU. Theoretical Framework: Research has shown that music aids in reducing stress anxiety after a surgical procedure and facilitates weaning. Stress in critical care nurses has been studied but continued insight into the perceived stress of critical care nurses is needed. A healthy work environment is often described as a healing environment with sounds affecting therapeutic outcomes. Positive effect of harp music on hemodynamic parameters can reduce potentially harmful physiological indices of post-operative recovery after open-heart surgery. Positive effect of harp music on nurses' perceived stress level can possibly increase nurse satisfaction. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): During this prospective, intervention study the harp was played for 2 hours Monday through Friday for 4 weeks (weeks 1&3 - 10 am to noon; weeks 2&4 - 2 to 4 pm). The harpist sat in a designated stationary location in the middle of the unit or roved depending on patient census. Sample: Hemodynamic data was collected on all patients cared for in the CPAU during these 4 weeks; 20 RNS completed questionnaires about perceived stress levels and perception of live harp music. Results: Data will be presented that captures means, standard deviation, range of vital signs; differences in vital signs pre, during, and post intervention with ANOVA; means, standard deviation, range of responses of nurse perceived stress level and nurse perception of live harp music; and, differences in nurse perceived stress level and nurse perception over time with ANOVA. Conclusions and Implications: Live harp music may be a complementary modality to enhance a positive healthy work environment. A second study is underway in which live harp music is played later in the day (5 to 7 pm).
