Noisy operations associated with increased infections after surgery
Date:6/1/2011

g of the non-patient-related conversations was not recorded.

"The results of our study suggest that increased sound levels in the operating theatre may point to issues such as surgical difficulty, a stressful environment, impaired discipline or concentration" concludes Dr Beldi.

"Each of these factors may increase the risk of SSIs and other complications and further studies looking at the source of operating theatre noise and its specific influence on the behaviour and performance of surgeons is warranted."

In an editorial on the paper, Professor Ara Darzi from the Division of Surgery at Imperial College London, says that it stands to reason that noisy surgical environments distract the surgeon from what is a complex task.

"The authors are to be commended on seeking clinically important parameters concerning the quality and safety against which to measure outcome" he says. "It is also worth noting that this research stems from a simple research question and did not involve a multicentre trial. Yet it produced interesting and relevant results for the surgical community.

"Not all great research need necessarily be on a large scale; surgeons should be encouraged to examine the day-to-day problems they encounter and seek innovative ways to investigate them."
