Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This survey will ask questions about the use of ambient (background) music during pulmonary or cardiac rehabilitation exercise sessions, including the type of music selected, who makes the selection and the reasons for this selection. It will also ask questions as to whether participants in pulmonary or cardiac rehabilitation engage with their own music listening during exercise sessions. If so, questions will include the type of music selected and the reasons for this section. The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete. An online survey administered by Qualtrics will be used to collect this data. This survey has been specifically designed for this study. Pulmonary rehabilitation or cardiac rehabilitation programs in Australia who are registered with the Lung Foundation Australia pulmonary rehabilitation database or the Australian Cardiac Rehabilitation Association network respectively will be invited to participate by email, following endorsement and approval of this project by both organisations. Potential participants will be emailed an introduction to the study, following by a link to the explanation and consent form and the online survey. A separate survey will be sent to cardiac rehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation clinicians. Completion of the survey will be required once. The participants can complete the survey at any time, as they are coordinators or instructors of these program and questions are not specific to individual participants involvement or completion of a rehabilitation program. To maximise uptake, 1 reminder email will be sent to potential participants, one month after the initial invitation email. Data will be extracted from Qualtrics in a de-identified manner.

Summary
Brief summary
Pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation programs are part of standard care for people with chronic respiratory conditions and cardiac disease. As part of these programs, a mix of endurance and resistance exercise training is undertaken, with the benefits of improving exercise tolerance, reducing symptoms, improving quality of life and reducing the risk of future cardiac events. However, some individuals undertaking a pulmonary or cardiac rehabilitation program achieve minimal benefit. For some individuals in pulmonary rehabilitation, this has been attributed to symptoms of breathlessness or fatigue which may reduce the adherence to an exercise program. In cardiac rehabilitation, compliance may be dependent on the degree of pleasure experienced during the program as well as motivation and family support. In healthy people, listening to music during exercise can reduce the perception of fatigue or breathlessness and this has been linked to achievement in greater exercise intensity, due to the distraction of the music listening. To maximise the benefits of music listening, the tempo of the music and type of music are both important.
It is thought that music listening during cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs may optimise the benefits of these exercise sessions, as it may desensitise individuals to their symptoms of breathlessness and fatigue and may enhance motivation for attending these programs.
Anecdotally, background music is often played during cardiac or pulmonary rehabilitation programs as part of clinical practice. However, the use of background music in these program, the actual choice of music and the reasons for these choices have not been examined. In addition, while individuals attending these programs may choose to listen to their own music choices, but the frequency to which this occurs, the interface used for self-selected music listening and the reasons for self-selected music choices have not been examined.
