People who live in the Louisville, KY area have been hearing about music with surgery for at least 10 years. At first blush, it seems like a radical idea, but once people understand that your body responds to music even when “asleep” it makes perfect sense. The first thing one must understand is: It’s NOT about entertainment! Although I’d like to believe that it is definitely enjoyable, the idea is that our minds and bodies respond to the slow, steady pulse of music by staying more relaxed and maintaining and slow, steady heart rate, breathing, and blood pressure. THIS allows the patient to require up to 50% LESS anesthesia! That is phenomenal! Anesthesia is one of the most dangerous (but necessary) parts of surgery. If you can maintain the same level of sedation without nearly as much anesthesia, why wouldn’t you?
WOW! What a difference a couple of days can make in one’s life! Since getting word on Monday that my patent had finally been awarded, I have been contacted by loads of people! Isn’t that exciting? Most are just asking for information about my idea and of course one of the things that I do is to refer them to this blog! You CAN subscribe to this blog. Did you know that? There’s a little box near the top of the page that you can fill in and then not miss a single post!
I’m getting so many congratulatory emails that I spend nearly an hour everytime I sit down just reading those! In the meantime, I’m leaving Sunday on my 60th birthday cruise with my kids and their husbands so I’ll be out of touch while I’m gone. Please leave your comments on the blog. I look forward to hearing from you!
I am so excited and thrilled to announce the yesterday I was notified that my invention for delivering music during surgery has received a patent from the U.S. Patent Office. Needless to say, there are lots of small details ( like paying ANOTHER $1,000.00!!!) but now I can market the invention as a unique, proven, and patented device for surgery!!! HOORAY!!! It’s been a 3 1/2 year journey and I was turned down so many times in the beginning that I thought it might not happen at all. But as of yesterday around noon, the tides have turned and now I can begin looking for angel investors! Wouldn’t you like to invest in a simple device that will revolutionize the OR because of it’s proven ability to decrease the amount of anesthesia, anxiety medication and pain medication…all through music? I can only let a limited number of people join me in this venture so contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested! HOORAY!!!
