Tuberculosis belongs to chronic diseases as a result of the treatment of disease over a long period, admission to negative pressure isolation wards, and restrictions on visitors. During the in-patient admission, patients are vulnerable to social isolation and separation anxiety. If anxiety sustained, patients' quality of life would be affected. Thus, it is important to improve patients' experience of anxiety. Music has the effectiveness of relaxation, and is helpful to patients' anxious status and physiological responses. This study examined the effectiveness of music therapy on anxiety, depression and physiological responses for patients with tuberculosis.
The experimental study was conducted on a medical center of North Taiwan. 66 patients with Tuberculosis were included in this study. Patients who fit the inclusion criteria were randomly assigned to either experimental or control group. Patients in experimental group could choose a piece of CD and listen to music with earphone for 30 minutes. Patients in control group just rest for 30 minutes. The procedure was implemented once a day, and sustained for total 5 days.

The dormant form of TUBERCULOSIS where the person shows no obvious symptoms and no sign of the causative agent (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) in the SPUTUM despite being positive for tuberculosis infection skin test.
Tuberculosis of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges (TUBERCULOSIS, MENINGEAL), most often caused by MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS and rarely by MYCOBACTERIUM BOVIS. The infection may be limited to the nervous system or coexist in other organs (e.g., TUBERCULOSIS, PULMONARY). The organism tends to seed the meninges causing a diffuse meningitis and leads to the formation of TUBERCULOMA, which may occur within the brain, spinal cord, or perimeningeal spaces. Tuberculous involvement of the vertebral column (TUBERCULOSIS, SPINAL) may result in nerve root or spinal cord compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp717-20)
