Surgery with Music

For over twenty years, Dr. Cash has been researching the benefits of music with surgery and creating playlists for patients from all walks of life, undergoing surgeries of all kinds.

You will learn how
Music calms and soothes the patient so they require:
less anxiety meds
less pain meds
Headphones put the music directly into patients brain, though the eighth cranial nerve, so that patient is not affected by doctor’s music, which is usually faster than patient needs and otherwise not suitable for patient. Also blocks OR conversations that are not good for patient.
Patient recovers faster and more safely as a result of less medication and hospital can process more patients safely through the hospital.
