Music and Mother's Voice as a Therapeutic Intervention for Convalescing Preterm Infants in the NICU Public

Infants who require intensive care, as well as their families, are exposed to many unfamiliar sights and sounds. Clinicians employ pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic measures to reduce stress and promote comfort. A growing body of evidence exists for the use of music therapy as an aid to promote comfort in children requiring respiratory assistance; however, less is known about the application of this intervention to convalescing preterm infants in an intensive care nursery environment
