It is estimated that 800,000 people in France suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD), of whom 1-2% present the most severe form critical limb ischaemia (CLI). In this situation, the patient frequently presents painful non-healing ulcers and focal gangrene. Wound care is generally associated with increasing pain. Pain relief may be challenging in spite of major analgesics.

Several studies in this country and elsewhere assessed the usefulness of music for chronic or acute pain relief during care. However, no data are published regarding the interest of music therapy for pain relief during local care in PAD patients.

Official Title: Pain and Music Therapy During the Wound Healing in Patient Suffering Arteritis of Stage 5 or 6.

Further study details as provided by University Hospital, Limoges:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain relief during local care with music or not. [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    Different level of pain front-counterpart realization of the bandage which will be compared between both groups of patients in the seventh day after implementation of the procedure. The level of pain will be measured by a digital scale from 0 to 10.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Quantification in equivalent morphine of the analgesic prescription at the seventh day [ Time Frame: 7 days ]
    • Quantification in equivalent morphine of the analgesic prescription at the seventh day after implementation of the musicotherapy
    • Pain intensity during the bandage at the seventh day measured by digital scale from 0 to 10.
    • anxiety intensity at the seventh day measured by scale HAD after implementation of the musicotherapy.
