Stress effects of personal control over hospital noise.
Hospital critical care unit (CCU) sounds, instruction in personal control over noise, and stress were studied in 105 female volunteers attempting to sleep overnight in a simulated hospital environment.
Subjects were randomly assigned to three groups-instruction in personal control over noise, no instruction in personal control over noise, or a quiet condition.
The two noise conditions heard audiotaped recorded playback of CCU nighttime sounds.
The subjects with instruction in personal control received directions for using a sound conditioner to block out unwanted sounds.
This intervention failed to result in less stress.
