Plastic Surgery and Music – Stay away from RHCP
Here is a thing we’ve never touched till now at LipoAdvisor. What is the connection of music to Surgery! New studies showed that surgeons become more productive/concetrated when listening to (specific) music!
The research showed that 80% of the surgeons listen to music in order to calm down when carrying out a procedure though many would argue that music is a bit distractive! Queen, Bee Gees are among their fav choices! Let’s have a more thorough look at the whole subject!
Questioned surgeon claim that music helps in terms of higher concentration, better communication between the members of the team that is conducting the treatment as well as reduced anxiety thus leading to increased efficiency! Even more impressive is the fact that surgeons who listen to their favourite songs regularly enhance their performance!
It’s also interesting that music has a great effect in patients! Wake me Up before you Go-go (Wham) is considered to be the top choice for a better recovery. On the other Scar Tissue from Red Hot Chili Peppers is definitely a must-avoid track for plastic surgery! Other studies showed that music can relieve pain and calm patients that had a surgery!
Surgical Registrar at Gwen Hospital, Newport, David Bosanquet conducted a study that showed the influence of music to patients! Bosanquet claims: “Music can be even better than a pre-med for patients waiting to go under the knife” and adds “It relaxes them and helps dumb down the alien noises you get in hospitals which we are used to, but they are not.My personal choice of listening is something like Heart FM, or Classic FM, because these radio stations provide a good mix of fairly middle of the road stuff. For instance, you are not going to get much heavy metal on Heart FM, which may not be the most ideal way of preparing to go under the knife”. As for the effect of music on surgeons Mr. Bosanquet states that there are two trends: “those of us who like to hear music while we work, while others prefer to do it in silence.”
It’s quite interesting how two ostensibly unrelated fields like music and plastic surgery seem to come so close when speaking of surgeons’ effectiveness and patients recovery!
