Conclusions The evidence from the above trials is not sufficient to conclude that aromatherapy effectively relieves symptoms in patients with burns. However, the findings of the trials do not seem very plausible, and the trials themselves were of low quality and included only small numbers of patients. Studies that are adequately powered and feature better designs are needed to investigate the potential mechanisms underlying the effects of aroma therapy on pain and anxiety.

Abstract Pain management in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is a complex and challenging task to accomplish, and effective pain and symptom control improves quality of life. Pain is prevalent in more than 50% of hemodialysis patients and up to 75% of these patients are treated ineffectively due to its poor recognition by providers. A good history for PQRST factors and intensity assessment using visual analog scale are the initial steps in the management of pain followed by involvement of palliative care, patient and family counseling, discussion of treatment options, and correction of reversible causes.

Authors: Wulff V, Hepp P, Fehm T, Schaal NK Abstract In recent years, the effect of music interventions and music therapy has experienced increased attention in the literature. It has been shown that music has positive effects on cognitive and physical performance, such as concentration and endurance, as well as on psychological parameters, such as anxiety and relaxation. Studies within the context of medicine in particular are increasingly indicating that music may be used as an intervention for relief against anxiety, stress and pain. Music is therefore seen in actual practice as a supplement to conventional phar...

Intensive care units are care centers where, in order to provide the maximum benefit to individuals whose life is in danger, many lifesaving technological tools and devices are present, and morbidity and mortality rates are high.

Complementary health approaches are methods that are used both for the continuation and the improvement of the well-being of an individual and as additions to medical treatments that are based on a holistic approach. These appl...

ConclusionsAlthough there remains a paucity of high‐quality research in this area, the existing evidence indicates that behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia require a range of non‐pharmacologic sensory‐focused approaches that are tailored to the individual. Further research is needed to determine the interventions best suited for specific behaviours and contexts, particularly inappropriate sexual behaviours. Relevance to clinical practiceThere is a need for nurses to be informed of best practices in order to effectively plan appropriate interventions to address behaviours in older adults with dementia. ...

Studies have shown approximately 80% of surgical patients will experience moderate to severe pain, and music during the post-operative period can reduce postoperative pain and anxiety.1,2 Controlling pain leads to improved patient satisfaction, improved wound healing, and decreases in hospitalization length and consequently reduction in healthcare costs.9 Music therapy is recommended by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and is scientifically explained by several different theories.1,4,6 Orthopedics is often considered to be the most painful surgeries and being common surgery at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hos...
