The measures such as anxiety, pain, mood of the patients and the vital signs were critically analyzed. Specific focus was given to the mood of the patients after invasive procedures and the impact of music. In this study, a total of 29 studies were combined of which there were 10 excluded, as they did not meet the criteria required. Participants of the study were made to play headphones to see if they reduce the impact of invasive procedures. It was determined that the music had an impact on normal procedures and they were able to maintain a positive morale. However, in the case of invasion procedures, the anxiety of the patients did not subside. There was a small reduction in the anxiety levels that was observed in some patients.
The advantages of this systematic review were that it aided in showing the researcher the impact of music in the case of different procedures (Puetz, Morley and Herring, 2013). In the case of normal procedure, there was a general increase in the morale and no difference in the case of invasive procedure. However, it did improve the tolerance level of the people. The research pointed out towards the specific that should be focused in the future research endeavors and also enabled the researcher to understand the implication of music on the kinds of procedures undertaken by the people. The limitation of this research was the sample size and analysis of the qualitative impact of the people.
Secondary research data was collated. When secondary research data is used, there is a general shift in focus from what the researcher intends to find out. Real implications of the patients in palliative care were not in focus as a result of using these data. These pose severe limitation for this research. However the benefits mentioned overweight the issues of this research. It can be determined from this research that the music has an improvement in the quality of life of the patients. These results indicate that there is a definitive improvement in the quality of care and the tolerance of the people.
