Resumen breve

The study will investigate possible effects of music therapy as an adjunct in an invasive cardiac procedure where infected or broken pacemaker leads, or leads from implantable cardioverter-defibrillators are removed from inside the heart through the vein. The procedure is performed in local anaesthesia with the patient awake. Analgesic and anxiolytic drugs are given at the start of the procedure, and repeated if needed. In spite of the drugs, most patients will experience som degree of pain and/or anxiety and increased stress during the procedure. The music therapy intervention contains individually facilitated music listening and coping techniques, aiming to regulate stress responses. The music listening and guidance is provided by a certified music therapist before, during and after the invasive procedure.
