[Music and heart rate variability. Study of the effect of music on heart rate variability in healthy adolescents]
Journal/Book: Schweiz Rundsch Med Prax. 1999; 88: 951-2.
Abstract: The effect of trophotropic (relaxing) music on heart rate and heart rate variability has been investigated in 23 healthy young individuals by means of 24-hour Holter-ECG. Relaxing music (Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart) resulted in significant reduction of heart rate and also significant reduction of heart rate variability. The significance of these results for the use of music in coronary heart disease is discussed.
