Operating Naked Could Help Surgeons Prevent The Spread Of Germs

Would you like naked doctors to perform your surgery?

In the world of surgery, the spread of germs or disease-causing microorganisms is the surgeon’s nemesis. When doctors are operating on a person, they need to cut open the skin and other body linings to gain access to an organ they need to treat.

However, when there is a wound or opening on the skin, it’s easier for a microorganism to access the internal organs and cause serious health consequences. Now, a new study shows that surgeons who operate on a patient naked could lessen the spread of these germs.

In a new study by the University of Washington in the United States, a group of physicians has found that nude surgeons shed significantly lesser bacteria than those wearing scrubs. This study was done is in the hopes of finally finding a solution to the constant battle of preventing infections and spread of germs inside hospitals, especially in the operating room.

The physicians added that the reason behind scrubs harboring germs is that they rub against the skin, causing bacteria to fall off and spread through the air inside the operating room. The operating theater has an air conditioning unit, making it more likely for germs to spread, Mail Online reported.

Moreover, the study also found that male surgeons shed twice as many germs as women. Women who are wearing tights, like nurses, pose a greater health risk than those with bare legs.

The scrubs, though sterile, could still lead to the spread of pathogens inside the operating theater.

Infection or sepsis is one of the most prevalent complications of surgical procedures. This is a life-threatening condition and if it’s not treated properly, it might cause the death of the patient.

The important question here, of course, is if the surgeons are willing to perform the operation nude – and if patients are actually okay with that.
