Sir,

This is to respond to the "Letter to the Editor" [1] regarding our article titled "Influence of music on OT personnel" published in the Journal of Anaesthesiology Clinical Pharmacology. [2]

Our study overwhelmingly supported the view that instrumental music played in low or medium volume in the operation theater was the most preferred type of music by most of the surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and patients who were awake during the surgery. Many other studies also reiterated the choice of soft instrumental music. [3]

Patients who were awake and listening to the music played in the operation theater were less anxious and apprehensive. This was reflected in the questionnaire filled in by this group of patients. These patients, who were awake, were less stressed during the surgery and had a pleasant experience during the surgical procedure. [4]
