Abstract:
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare the use of an imagery/music intervention with the use of music alone, as an effective adjunct treatment for patients' perceived pre-operative and post-operative pain and anxiety.

METHOD: A sample of 99 patients undergoing total joint replacement was randomized into two groups. This two group mixed-method experimental design proposed to compare outcomes using guided imagery with music (GI), an intervention demonstrating promise in smaller studies; and music alone (M), a well studied intervention with positive outcomes. The patients using GI or M, were requested to listen to a CD at least four times pre-operatively, and twice a day post-operatively. Measurement data were compiled from chart extraction and a self-reporting diary.

RESULTS: This study was presented and approved by the Hospital Internal Review Board in January, 2007. Participants were enrolled from May, 2007-February 2008. Data collection and analysis was completed by September 2008. Analysis of the results showed no significant difference between the music/imagery intervention and using music alone. It is the opinion of the researchers that further studies should be conducted utilizing a more rigorous method of collecting subjective data.

NURSING IMPLICATIONS: This study adds to the body of knowledge regarding the use of complementary modalities to impact pain and anxiety in the perioperative patient. The use of guided imagery and/or music, is a method that nursing can implement independently, based on assessment of the patient's needs and desires. This, in turn, promotes and enhances patient participation in healthcare choices.
