Music in the OR: What music does your surgeon listen to?

Dr. Handler

There are a lot of sounds in hospitals. The beeping of the pulse ox machine. The drone of the ventilator. Warning chimes for IVs that need attention. The endless overhead announcements. And if you’re near the operating rooms at Akron Children’s Hospital, you might also hear the sounds of U2 or the country strains of Brad Paisley filling the air.
