Notes on Music

Music In Medicine
New York Presbyterian Hospital, among others nationwide, is using music in their neo-natal wards to increase the health of the babies.
They have found that singing lullabies makes the baby’s heart rate go down and oxygen in the blood go up.
The babies sleep better and gain weight faster, and are able to leave the hospital sooner. I guess it’s true that music does indeed “sooth the savage breast.”
