Purpose Music has been utilized as a therapeutic tool during colonoscopy, but various randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have been inconsistent. We conducted a meta-analysis to analyze the effect of music on patients undergoing colonoscopy. Patients and Methods Multiple medical databases were searched (12/06). Only RCTs on adult subjects that compared music versus no music during colonoscopy were included. Meta-analysis was analyzed for total procedure time, dose of sedative medications…

TLDR
It is indicated that music interventions may have a statistically significant effect in reducing post-operative pain, anxiety and distress in children undergoing a surgical procedure.
Gender Differences When Using Sedative Music During Colonoscopy
TLDR
Listening to sedative music decreased anxiety among women and increased well-being among men during colonoscopy, and this randomized controlled trial found that men in the intervention group were more relaxed during the Colonoscopy than those in the control group.
The Effects of Music on Pain: A Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
Considering all the possible benefits, music interventions may provide an effective complementary approach for the relief of acute, procedural, and cancer/chronic pain in the medical setting.

TLDR
There is a need to clearly define and differentiate between music therapy and music medicine interventions in procedural support research to improve research quality and reduce risk of bias.

TLDR
Listening to music during colonoscopy helps reduce the dose of sedative medications and decreases discomfort experienced during the procedure.
Effect of music on patients undergoing outpatient colonoscopy.
Improved procedure of colonoscopy under accompanying music therapy.
TLDR
Accompanying music therapy reduces requirement of analgesia during colonoscopy, favours completion of the procedure and shortens examination time, and music therapy seems to promote safer conditions for endoscopical practice and diminishs patients discomfort.
Perception of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy by Patients and Examiners with and without Background Music
TLDR
Music has little influence on patients’ experience of gastrointestinal endoscopy and the majority of patients felt music to be helpful and expressed a preference for music during any future examination.
Anxiety during the performance of colonoscopies: modification using music therapy
TLDR
Listening to music during ambulatory colonoscopies decreases the level of anxiety that is inherent to the process without other anxiolytic methods.
Effect of music therapy on state anxiety in patients undergoing flexible sigmoidoscopy
TLDR
Music is an effective anxiolitic adjunct to flexible sigmoidoscopy, and patients who listened to self-selected music tapes during the procedure had significantly decreased STAI scores.
A Music Intervention to Reduce Anxiety Prior to Gastrointestinal Procedures
TLDR
Music is a noninvasive nursing intervention that can significantly reduce patients’ anxiety prior to gastrointestinal procedures and should be addressed using music to reduce anxiety in other procedure areas.
Relaxation music decreases the dose of patient-controlled sedation during colonoscopy: a prospective randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Music can decrease the dose of sedative medication required for colonoscopy and the combination of music and patient-controlled sedation was the best-accepted mode of sedation among 3 groups.
Effect of relaxation music on patient tolerance of gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures.
TLDR
It is concluded that, even in patients who have sedation, relaxation music can reduce the number who find the experience of gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures unpleasant, and therefore it has a role as an adjunct to sedation in gastrointestinal endoscope procedures.
Listening to Turkish classical music decreases patients' anxiety, pain, dissatisfaction and the dose of sedative and analgesic drugs during colonoscopy: a prospective randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
Listening to music during colonoscopy helps reduce the dose of sedative medications, as well as patients' anxiety, pain, dissatisfaction during the procedure, and it is believed that listening to music can play an adjunctive role to sedation in Colonoscopy.
