Music may alleviate the anxiety of cancer patients, reducing the need for anesthetics and analgesics
A total of 52 tests were examined in a group of 3,731 cancer participants. Twenty-three of them participated in music therapy and another 29 had music medicine interventions.
Overall, one of the findings with the greatest impact was that musical interventions of all types resulted in a moderate to strong effect in reduction of anxiety in patients. Small reductions in heart and respiratory rate as well as low blood pressure have also been discovered. Professor Joke Bradt reveals that further studies are still needed: "The results of individual analyzes suggest that listening to music can reduce the need of anesthetics and analgesics, as well as the reduction of recovery time and duration of hospitalization, but more research is required for these results. "
When comparing the two musical treatments, a moderate increase in quality of life was observed in patients with music therapy. "Both of these interventions have played an important role in the treatment of cancer, but we do not yet know which ones may be more suitable for each type of outcome," said Bradt.
There is a recent search for better HIV prevention tactics, as well as the traditional recommendation for condom use in all sexual relationships, including oral sex. The idea has intensified after the creation of increasingly effective medicines with less adverse effects. Science works on the concept that medicines can be used by healthy people to prevent infection of some diseases.
A healthy, 28-year-old man accustomed to making long trajectories with backpacks was hospitalized early in March with symptoms of Cerebral Vascular Accident (AVC). As a very unusual picture in young people, doctors from USP University Hospital (HU) decided to investigate the case to understand how the problem may have happened.
