Objectives: Most patients undergoing colonoscopic interventions experience anxiety. Sedation can alleviate worries, but also increase medical cost and potential complication risk Music listening helps calm mood, and this study aimed to investigate the effects of music listening for colonoscopic interventions. Methods: Adult inpatients who had indications and underwent therapeutic colonoscopy in a tertiary center were in cluded. A total of 224 patients were enrolled and randomly divided into Group 1 (classic music listening, n=76), Group 2 (popular music listening, n=72) and Group 3 (no music listening, n=76). All patients listened to three songs in turns. Primary and secondary outcomes were satisfaction score immediately and 2 h after procedure. Results: There were no significantly statistical differences on demographic and clinical features among three groups. The mean satisfaction score in Group 1, Group 2 and Group 3 was 8.3, 8.5 and 6.7 immediately after procedure (p=0.02), which were 9.9, 9.8 and 9.6 2h after procedure (p=0.04), respectively. Abdominal distension and abdominal pain was all reported in three groups immediately after procedure, and no obvious discomfort were reported 2h after procedure. Conclusion: These results proved that music listening obviously alleviated anxiety during therapeutic colonoscopy regardless of music style (registered at ClinicalTrials.gov, NCT04096508). Keywords: Endoscopy, therapeutic interventions, music
