There’s good news for every surgeon who prepares themselves for a particularly intensive operation by singing “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)”: Hearing aloud, a new study finds AC DC Can improve surgical speed and accuracy during operation.
Researchers at Heidelberg University in Germany decided to look at the common practice of playing music in the operating room and see if they could find evidence that certain styles actually increase a surgeon’s efficacy. their conclusions, published at the end of last monthshowed that music has an impact on performance—and that fast AC/DC works best.
This study was conducted by a group of novice surgeons performing laparoscopic surgery (gut-slicing, for us lay-slicing) while listening to hard or soft rock at various volumes. As sun reports“When The Beatles’ hits ‘Hey Jude’ and ‘Let It Be’ were played in the background, doctors stitched up the wounds about 50 percent faster,” although this improvement “if those tracks were played louder, So it was lost.”
When surgeons heard AC/DC’s “TNT” and “Highway to Hell”, however, “the time required to make an accurate cut [dropped] 236 seconds to 139” and doctors performed “about five percent better on tests of accuracy.” Lead research Cui Yang said this effect was “particularly noticeable when” [hard rock] Music was played at high volume. ,
Yang attributes this to the possibility that “music with higher rhythmicity may provide a tempo to maintain the tempo of the performance and thus enhance task performance.” In other words, listening to fast AC/DC while working ensures that surgeons don’t accidentally touch too much with their instruments, inadvertently give patients nudges to nudge the wrong limb, or worst of all, move all night. It is that which causes a flatline, which is what causes it. Worst of them to run from the highway to hell.
Hopefully, a follow-up study will be published soon that determines once and for all what to do. a funny little duck walk Surgical performance is further improved when holding the scalpel.
