The influence of music on the requirement of sedatives during regional anesthesia was prospectively investigated in 64 patients. It was found that patients listening to music had a significantly ( p = 0.028) smaller need of sedatives although significantly ( p < 0.05) more patients in this group could recall a feeling of anxiety during surgery. With the purpose of reducing the consumption of sedatives, we recommend the use of music during regional anesthesia.
