    In addition to the fact that we love listening to music, it also helps us to concentrate on work and motivate ourselves when exercising. But now music has also become an instrument of great help for doctors when they are in the operating room.

    Researchers at Yale University have studied the effects of noise in the operating room. It is believed that music carefully selected by the surgeon can have a beneficial effect. Music helps surgeons relax, improve their cognitive function and elevate their mood. In addition, it has been proven that music can be more effective than anxiolytics to relieve stress. In the same study it was found that 87 out of 100 surgeons prefer to operate with background music.
