Patients undergo Renal Biopsy (RB) feel anxiety, pain and stress.
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of musictherapy intervention (MTI) on anxiety, pain, satisfaction and heart rate variability (HRV) during RN.
Patients scheduled for RB were enrolled (n=80) and were assigned to music therapy intervention group (MG, n=40) or standar care (CG, n=40).
MG received a receptive MTI by a certified music therapist during KB.
Patient anxiety assessment before and after RB was performed using State Trait Anxiety Inventory Y-1(STAI-Y1). A visual analog scale (VAS) was used for self-assessment of pain and satisfation. The physiological stress parameters were assessed using HRV (E4wrist bands -Empatica Inc.1).
There were statistically significant differences between the two groups in the mean post-procedural STAI Y-1 score and in the mean pain score on VAS and satisfaction. SDNN, RMSDD and SD2 measures of HRV increased significantly more in MG than in CG.
