Title:
Music Does Sooth the Soul
Abstract:
(Summer Institute) Evidence shows that using music in the NICU is a clinically sensitive manner that has distinct benefits. Music can reduce stress, reduce crying, improve sleep and improve cognitive development in the premature baby in the NICU. Stress levels are also decreased after music intervention. This justifies the incorporation of music therapy programs into the standard of care for premature infants. Problem: Just a small amount in convincing staff of the benefits to the neonate. It did not take long once they realized that it really did work. Evidence: Once the staff used the IPods with music and found that they spend less time walking back and forth to the infant crib to give a pacifier or finding other ways to comfort the infant. It was awesome to come in and both IPods were being used and we wished we had more. Strategy: We found that using the IPod with music often helped fussy infants, and during procedures they cried less, or stopped within seconds of the procedure. Practice Change: We try to use the IPod during procedures and for fussy infants. Evaluation: We did journaling before we started using the IPods with Music. We also defined a fussy inconsolable infant, and how long the infant would continue to fuss with traditional methods. We found that they calmed quickly with the music. Results: Everybody was amazed that music really does soothe the soul. Recommendations: We are hoping to start a research project in the late summer or early fall. Lessons Learned: Music, especially lullabies (because they mimic the heart beat of 60 to 80 beats per minute), really does help with a fussy infant or one that is having a procedure done, even an IV start.
