Music is as common now in operating rooms as it is in elevators. Although the tunes heard within the medical field are generally more inspiring and/or comforting. Studies have shown that music can ease both doctor and patient anxieties. It’s also been proven that music not only improves a doctor’s performance, but it also lowers the amount of anesthesia a patient needs. Dr. Mark Goodwin, a cardiologist with Midwest Heart Specialists, explains, “I do think that music, whether it’s a symphony or whatever, touches our soul in a different way. And I think anything that does that helps heal us.”
