  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of music therapy before, during, and after cardiac catheterization is associated on (a) change in reactive hyperemia index measured before and after catheterization using peripheral arterial tonometry and (b) patient stress and discomfort measured by a questionnaire, as compared to the standard of care (no music during cardiac catheterization).

The hypothesis of the study is that music therapy during cardiac catheterization will be associated with more favorable change in reactive hyperemia and higher patient satisfaction compared to no music playback.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • change in reactive hyperemia index measured by peripheral arterial tonometry [ Time Frame: PAT will be performed within 2 hours before cardiac catheterizaiton and repeated within 2 hours after the end of cardiac catheterization ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Stress and anxiety questionnaire [ Time Frame: questionnaire will be completed within 2 hours after the end of cardiac catheterization ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    a stess and anxiety questionnaire will be completed within 2 hours after cardiac catheterization is completed
