AbstractFor individuals with motor neuron disease, the transition to using non-invasive ventilation has a number of associated stressors, which can negatively impact adherence to ventilation and its benefits to quality of life. Music listening interventions have been linked with a reduction in anxiety and physiological stress responses in mechanically ventilated patients. This article presents four case studies from a feasibility study that investigated the experience and effect of a music-assisted relaxation intervention on anxiety, quality of life, and non-invasive ventilation use during the first 3 months of using non-invasive ventilation. The experiences of these four participants demonstrated how music-assisted relaxation served to distract from non-invasive ventilation and promote relaxation, indicating that for some, music-assisted relaxation could be a useful strategy to optimize their non-invasive ventilation experience. Early music therapy intervention in motor neuron disease progression could be beneficial to address obstacles faced by one participant in using music-assisted relaxation.
