The blue light in the operating room

The Blue-green light is the complementary color of blood; with which the successive contrast phenomenon is suppressed, which allows the surgeons and their assistants to rest their vision when they look away from their eyes from the surgical intervention area.

Several studies have shown a lower rate of complications when performing operations in rooms with blue lighting, due to the better visualization that the surgeon and his surgical team have.
