In my experience, many older cardiac surgeons have a familial tremor... The heart really isn't as delicate as many people think. I have seen some impressive tremors, but have yet to see an operation turn out badly because of them.

dont be too stressed about the tremour. I work with doctors & they are some of THE best surgeons. Im sorry to hear you are having/had heart surgery. best of luck!

Actually, it takes less than a second. Anyone who's taken a Biology course (or has common sense) would know that. The five second rule is baloney.

They tried this on Mythbusters. And concluded that Bacteria transfers on contact, and multiply with rapid rate.

I saw a show that said dropping moist ingredients bacteria transfers in under 1 second, dry ingredients three and under. Not sure how correct but what if it was a tim tam!

The 5-second rule is a myth and nothing more. Bacteria transfer on contact. Full stop. johngaltmovement - The bacteria in your mouth are different than the ones on the floor that can make you sick. You do have gut immunity (google "secretory IgA") which protects you somewhat, but not against everything.

They did research recently and found out the dangerous ones which your body cant fight against takes around 5 seconds so it is true in some sense

Not true, bacteria can transfer the... (cant fond a fraction of a second long enough...) as soon as the doughnut hit the ground. :D

True transfer is instantaneous and true bacteria is everywhere. But a hearty immune system is improved by the occasional bacteria challenge. :) Eat it anyway!

Yeah, imagine this: Bacteria 1: "Don´t hop on that bagel, it has not been on the ground for 5 seconds, yet!" Bacteria 2: "Yeah, sure. I´ll wait 2 seconds..."

Actually the floors at doctor's offices are NOT clean. They are covered with germs and bacteria and who knows what else! Gross!

Reply

medical facility floors are likely more dangerously dirty due to the disproportionate number of seriously ill people that are on them... Bacteria and viruses don't crawl onto dropped food, they are transferred immediately upon contact... , not 30 seconds or even 5 seconds, instantly

Yeah, because scaring the crap out of someone who already has a weak heart is a very wise thing for a doc to do right?

Watch out for Junior Mints during the operation. I don't know how many will get that seinfeld reference :

It was a : face but yeah, the 20% warning popped up as i went to hit send. Im surprizsed i did that well trying to type on an ipod

Count me in that number, except I never knew why that surgeon was also the Assman. I didn't think proctologists did surgery.

Drops heart, oops five second rule. Blows off the dirt and tries to wipe off the hairs. Eh, whatever, *puts it back.*

A heart surgeon that eats donuts at work, has trembling hands and eats shit off the floor? You'd be better off using happy thoughts or acupuncture to fix your bad ticker than having this clown crack you open.

It's not just that the doctor likes donuts -- it's just the sheer bad taste of eating them in front of a patient who likely is there because of eating too many donuts.
