If you’re thinking about using music with your surgery, you really do want to talk with the anesthesiologist first. Why? Because the anesthesiologist is the one whose job will be most affected by the patient’s use of music. Why is that, you say? One of the main reasons to use music through headphones during surgery is because the patient is able to use up to 50% less anesthesia when they are hearing music through headphones during the procedure.
As I’ve said many times, even though there are many, many studies documenting this phenomenon,many physicians still are not aware of it and therefore will need to be educated about the benefits. If you’re interested in trying it but don’t know enough to talk with your doctor, use the link above to order my two-tape set which will give you the info you need as well as the music you need!
