Musical Anesthesia, 1950 1
III: Events
In the new Nathan Goldblatt Memorial Hospital at the University of Chicago, an anesthesiologist asks a patient about a choice of music to be played during an operation. The patient, who will have local, spinal, or regional anesthesia the next day, is able to choose from classical, semi-classical, or popular music as an adjuvant to their anesthesia. Surgeons and psychiatrists understand that a surgical operation is a very real ordeal for nearly all patients. The music is heard by the anesthesiologist who proctors it, and the patient.
