A recent study showed that blasting AC/DC music in operating theaters almost doubled surgeons’ speed at some things without affecting their exactness. As an example, doctors in the trials that listened to Highway to Hell and T.N.T. were able to make a precision cut in 139 seconds instead of the usual 236 seconds.
Music is played in around two-thirds of operations. Lead researcher Cui Yang from Heidelberg University in Germany says that both hard and soft rock improved surgeons’ performance, but for hard rock “The positive effect was especially noticeable when the music was played at high volume.”
