Assignment. Help i need a journal article!!!

  1. Hi I was wondering if someone could possibly help me with locating a journal article for a paper. I think it will be most helpful but I don't have access to it from my uni, only the abstract.
    here it is

    The effect of music in the postanesthesia care unit on pain levels in women who have had abdominal hysterectomies.
    Journal of Perianesthesia Nursing. 13(2):88-94, 1998 Apr.

    If anyone has access to it in a full text database and could email it to that would be great.

    I tried doing a search but could not find the article. Do you have the name of the author?

    Most colleges/universitys have access to any article you need. Just put a request in at your library. We have a form, either online or that we can fill out by hand, and the requested material usually arrives within a couple of days.

    Good luck

    Below is the abstract from the JPN website. There are more articles on this subject at:

    Management of pain in the immediate postoperative period is a major concern of postanesthesia nurses. Music is a nursing intervention with the potential to decrease patient perception of pain in the PACU. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of the use of music on the level of patient pain in the immediate postoperative period. A quasi-experimental study design was used with three study groups. All patients scheduled for elective abdominal hysterectomies using a general anesthesia technique were eligible for participation in the study. The setting is a PACU in a community hospital in a suburban area. Subjects were asked to rate their pain level every 15 minutes while in the PACU using two valid and reliable measures, a verbal pain rating scale and a graphic numeric pain intensity scale. Repeated measures of analysis of variance showed no differences in level of pain between groups or over time.

    Sorry, still can't get it. I tried by author, title, and the name of the journal. Our search engine may be limited because it is a small CC.
