Objectives: (1) To check music and voice message influence on vital signs and facial expressions of patients in physiological or induced comas; (2) To connect the existence of patient's responsiveness with the Glasgow Coma Scale or with the Ramsay Sedation Scale.
Method: This was a randomized controlled clinical trial with 30 patients, from two Intensive Care Units, being divided in 2 groups (control and experimental). Their relatives recorded a voice message and chose a song according to the patient's preference. The patients were submitted to 3 sessions for 3 consecutive days.
The relatives elaborated a voice recorded message and choose a music according to the patient preference, which were recorded in the same Compact Disc. Two identical CD's were made at the same recorded time; one with and another one without stimulus in order to make the random division of the groups. The patients were evaluated according to one of the Scales; they used earphones. During the sessions, the data relating to the vital signs and the face expression were recorded in a data collection instrument.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Investigator), Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
