Binaural Beats for Reducing Anxiety During Surgery

New research that was highlighted at the 2012 American Adacemy of Ophthalmology suggested that “soothing sounds during cataract surgery reduces patient anxiety”. The study found that patients in one group who listened to a binaural beats audio mix before, during and after cataract surgery had less anxiety and a slower heart rate, compared with the control group patients who did not receive the binaural beats stimulus. Systolic blood pressure was also shown to be significantly reduced in patients that were listening to the soothing audio.

In my own experience, listening to binaural beats audio stimulus, with a soothing background track can definitely help reduce anxiety. I can see how anxiety reduction can be beneficial for patients undergoing something like cataract surgery where only local anesthetic is used.

More information on the study can be found on the American Academy of Ophthalmology website, here:

Binaural Beats for the Treatment of Anxiety

A study ouf of Montreal, showed that listening to binaural beats in the delta/theta range may be beneficial in reducing anxiety.

Participants in the study were asked to listen to the binaural beats 5 times per week over the course of 4 weeks. The participants were also asked to record their levels of anxiety in a journal before and after the binaural beats sessions.

The study found that listening the binaural beats resulted in significant reduction in the reported anxiety levels for those participants who consistently listened to the tapes over the period.
