Music helps decrease sense of pain for kids

New research by medical researchers at the University of Alberta provide more evidence that music decreases children’s perceived sense of pain. Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry researcher Lisa Hartling led the research team that involved her colleagues from the Department of Pediatrics, as well as fellow researchers from the University of Manitoba and the United States.

The team conducted a clinical research trial of 42 children between the ages of 3 and 11 who came to the pediatric emergency department at the Stollery Children’s Hospital and needed IVs.

Some of the children listened to music while getting an IV, while others did not.
Researchers measured the children’s distress, perceived pain levels and heart rates, as well as satisfaction levels of parents, and satisfaction levels of health-care providers who administered the IVs. The trial took place between January 2009 and March 2010.  “We did find a difference in the children’s reported pain – the children in the music group had less pain immediately after the procedure,” Hartling said.

“The finding is clinically important and it’s a simple intervention that can make a big difference. Playing music for kids during painful medical procedures would be an inexpensive and easy-to-use intervention in clinical settings,” she added.

Eating walnuts may helpyou live longer

Eating a handful of walnuts just thrice a week is the key to a longer life, a new study has found.

Scientists discovered that these edible seeds cut the risk of dying from cancer by 40 per cent and from cardiovascular disease by at least 55 per cent, the Daily Express reported.
In general, nut eaters in the research had a 39 per cent lesser risk of death and walnut eaters in particular a 45 per cent reduced threat.

The study, which was conducted by researchers at the Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona, Spain, was done on 7,000 people aged 55 to 90. The results were published in the journal BMC Medicine.
