Tuberculosis belongs to chronic diseases as a result of the treatment of disease over a long period, admission to negative pressure isolation wards, and restrictions on visitors. During the in-patient admission, patients are vulnerable to social isolation and separation anxiety. If anxiety sustained, patients' quality of life would be affected. Thus, it is important to improve patients' experience of anxiety. Music has the effectiveness of relaxation, and is helpful to patients' anxious status and physiological responses.
