Our findings have been published in more than 150 peer-reviewed journals.

Since 1999, MUSIC CARE© has been a leader in research & development on the psychological and -physiological effects of music as a clinical therapy. We have had the privilege of working with some of the most reputed research partners in the world.

Music Care enabled a  62% reduction in the dose of sedation during coronary angioplasty

MUSIC CARE© treatment can enable a 62% reduction in midazolam sedation during coronary angiography under local anesthesia. Cardiologists appreciate this technique and recommend its use to facilitate their interventions in outpatient practice. Using MUSIC CARE© can therefore reduce hospitalization costs by shortening patient stays.
