Effects of music intervention on inflammatory markers in critically ill and post-operative patients: a systematic review of the literature.
This systematic review was conducted to determine if music has a beneficial effect on inflammatory biomarkers in intensive care and post-operative patients. After screening, a total of 26 studies were identified for review and 14 were selected for inclusion. Only seven studies showed a significant decrease in cortisol levels. Three of the studies had a low risk of bias, but 11 studies had a high risk. None of the studies had a high level of evidence.
