A Study on Effect of Favorite Film Songs on Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and Heart Rate (HR) with Moderate Exercise
Introduction: Heart rate variability (HRV) is the physiological event of variation in the time interval between heart beats. It is measured by the variation in the beat-to-beat interval (R-R interval).The present study aimed at determining the effect of favorite film songs on HRV and HR with moderate exercise.
Materials and Method: This was a cross sectional observational study conducted in the department of physiology, Vinayaka mission’s medical college & hospital. Participants were allowed to select favorite slow tempo and fast tempo film songs. Selected songs were played (4-5 minutes) before and during exercise, with 30 minute interval (each day N=10) and their HRV and HR were measured by using time and Frequency domain method. (Standard instrumental protocol was followed).
Results: In this study, participants were able to do exercise at a lower HR with a slow tempo film song when compared to no music or film song during exercise the cardiac activity the HR and HRV was improved and fast recovery too. It was observed that the musical therapy improved the time and frequency domain indices of HRV.
Conclusion:The present study clearly indicates that, a particular favorite tempo of a film song or music has a beneficial effect on HRV and HR changes through the involvement of the PSNS and SNS.
