Study finds music doesn’t affect colonoscopy performance, but may distract trainees

Posted on

Listening to music during colonoscopy does not appear to have a significant impact on the overall performance of performing a colonoscopy, according to a study. However, it highlighted a potential concern regarding trainees, suggesting that music may distract them and hinder their ability to detect adenomas and polyps accurately.

The study compared colonoscopy performance outcomes, including insertion time, adenoma detection rate (ADR), and polyp detection rate (PDR), between a group that listened to music and a group that did not.

The analysis, after one-to-one propensity score matching, included 169 colonoscopies from each group. The results revealed no significant differences in insertion time (4.97 minutes in the music group vs 5.17 minutes in the non-music group,) and adenoma detection rate (ADR), (39.1% in the music group vs 46.2% in the non-music group) between the 2 groups.

In a further subgroup analysis, no significant differences were observed in insertion time among experts (3.6 minutes in the music group vs 3.8 minutes in the non-music group) and ADR (51.1% in the music group vs 44.7% in the non-music group). However, in the trainee subgroup, the study found significantly lower PDR (46.9% in the music group vs 66.7% in the non-music group) and ADR (25.9% in the music group vs 47.6% in the non-music group) in the music group.
