This is a questions that I’m frequently asked when people are planning to use music with their surgery. The concept of using music during surgery is still a very new concept and many patients are confused about whether it is primarily for them or for the doctor.
Of course, one of the BIG benefits of the Surgical Serenity Solution is that both patient and doctor can each have their ideal, preferred type of music! Usually the surgeon wants music that is
The patient needs music that is
* Slow and Steady
* Purely instrumental
So why does the patient need unfamiliar music and the surgeon gets to use familiar favorites? Primarily because the surgeon is wide-awake, needing to focus and aware of what music does that for him. The patient, on the other hand, needs to brought down in energy level, consciousness, and awareness of surroundings. Something slow, steady and soothing will best do that; and because music is so often associated with specific events and people, we need to choose music that is not widely known and associated with pop culture or well-known events.
The music that we use on our pre-programmed, cordless headphones is classical music that the average person will not know. In all the hundreds of people that have used the headphones, only one person at the last minute had a negative association and asked that headphones be removed.
We do have samples on our sales pages that give you a representative sample of what our music sounds like. See http://www.surgicalserenity.com/purchase.htm
So, back to the question “what surgeries have successfully incorporated the use of music through Surgical Serenity Headphones?” So far we’ve been present for:
Abdominal Aortic Anerysm
Labor and Delivery
Heart by-pass surgery
Breast cancer surgery
Lung cancer surgery
Root canal surgery
Shoulder replacement surgery
Hernia repair and tummy tuck
and many, many more!
