A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of music in reducing pain during outpatient hysteroscopy under no anesthesia.

Researchers conducted a prospective randomized controlled trial. A total of 107 patients were randomized to a music group or non?music group. Music was played during outpatient hysteroscopy in the music group. Patients in the non?music group had the procedure done in the same setting without music. The primary outcome was the level of pain measured using the visual analog scale (VAS) score before and during the procedure. Secondary outcomes were vital parameters that reflect the level of pain including blood pressure and heart rate.

Patients in the music group experienced significantly less pain during outpatient hysteroscopy. The anticipated pain level was similar in both groups. There was no statistically significant difference between the two groups in all the vital parameters.

Listening to music during outpatient hysteroscopy under no anesthesia significantly reduces pain in a well?matched Chinese population. Music is easy to provide with low?cost equipment and manpower. Results recommend the routine use of music during outpatient hysteroscopy to improve patient care.
