Average systolic blood pressure before and after the intervention showed no significant difference (p>0.05). Diastolic blood pressure before and after the intervention was not significantly different (p>0.05). Average heart rate before and after the intervention showed a significant difference (p<0.05). The average number of breathing before and after the intervention was not significantly different (p<0.05). conclusion: The results suggest that music therapy can be used to reduce anxiety and to normalize heart symptoms in patients undergoing transesophageal echocardiography.
