ICU-Hear is an initiative which offers live music to critically ill patients on the intensive care unit in hospital, provided by a charity group called Music in Hospitals and Care. The aim of this initiative is to provide a soothing, relaxing, calming and even uplifting atmosphere for patients who are critically ill in hospital. The music aims to make the critical care unit less clinical and provide a calming ambience for patients.
