Yes!! I used to work in the intensive care unit with trauma patients and other critically ill patients. We did an experiment with music. We asked family members what patient's favorite music was and we provide soft music of that kind in their cubicles. The patients with music used much less pain medication, had lower heart rates and lower blood pressures than those who had no music. The patients responded very positively to the music and later told us how helpful the music was as a distraction to their pain and illness. I now work mental health and I can't begin to tell you the benefits of music to the anxious patient, depressed patient and others!
