Music during surgery and other medical procedures is a very good idea. Procedures such as colonoscopies, plastic surgery, dental surgery, chemotherapy, labor and delivery, setting broken bones, even giving injectionsm can be used by providing the patient with lightweight headphones that are programmed with soothing music.
Everyone knows (I believe) that music distracts you from pain, anxiety, fear and stressful thoughts. Our thoughts are powerful and can actually increase the amount of fear and anxiety that the patient is experiencing. When you listen to soothing music through headphones, not only are you distracted from the anxiety-provoking medical procedure, but the headphones (rather than earbuds) help to block out the sounds and converations involved with the procedure.
My surgical headphones were patented back in 2008 and are now in use all over the U.S. and in three foreign countries! I hope that you will give them a try if you or a friend or family member has a medical procedure or surgery on the horizon. There have been hundreds of medical research studies about the benefits of music before, during and after a medical procedure or surgery and they all say it’s a great idea!
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to reduce the amount of anesthesia and analgesia you’ll need and thereby recover faster and more safely! Please contact me if you have any questions at all!
