Singing for children and adults with cystic fibrosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND

Cystic fibrosis is a genetically inherited, life-threatening condition that affects major organs. The management of cystic fibrosis involves a multi-faceted daily treatment regimen that includes airway clearance physiotherapy, taking pancreatic enzymes and other medications. Previous studies identified that compliance with this intensive treatment especially among adolescents with cystic fibrosis is poor. Because of both the nature and consequences of the illness and the relentless demands of treatments, many individuals with cystic fibrosis are likely to have a poor quality of life. Anecdotal evidence suggests that singing may provide rigorous exercises for the whole respiratory system as well as a means for emotional expression, which may enhance quality of life.

OBJECTIVES

To evaluate the effects of a singing intervention in addition to usual therapy on the quality of life, morbidity, respiratory muscle strength and pulmonary function of children and adults with cystic fibrosis.

SEARCH STRATEGY

We searched the Group's Cystic Fibrosis Trials Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, major allied complementary data bases, and clinical trial registers. Hand searching for relevant conference proceedings and journals was also carried out.Date of search of Trials Register: 02 September 2009.Date of additional searches: 17 September 2009.

SELECTION CRITERIA

Randomised controlled trials in which singing (as an adjunctive intervention) is compared with either a sham intervention or no singing in people with cystic fibrosis.

DATA COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS

No trials were found that met the selection criteria.

MAIN RESULTS

No meta-analysis could be performed.

AUTHORS' CONCLUSIONS

As no studies that met the criteria were found, this review is unable to support or refute the benefits of singing as a therapy for people with cystic fibrosis. Future randomised controlled trials are required to evaluate singing therapy for people with cystic fibrosis.
