Wiggling the mask significantly increased the degree of bacterial shedding onto agar plates 15 cm below the lips in bearded males (p = 0.03) and females (p = 0.03), but not in clean-shaven males.

To reduce the risks of contamination of the sterile field when face masks are worn females and bearded males should avoid wiggling the face mask. Bearded males may also consider removing their beards."


No suggestion for women to remove their beards?

So, a clean-shaven male is a better choice of surgeon than a female?

That's sexist.

I've got a rare disease.

You've probably never heard of it.

I would be more worried about the sex than the mask wiggling. If they have got to do it in the operating room, can't they at least wait until I'm in recovery?

Hipster surgeon manages to kill lots of his patients.
He liked operating on them before they're cool.

YOU CAN USE YOUR BEARD TO STAUNCH THE BLEEDING!

- See they never think of these lifesaving details, what's a little sloughing skin when it comes down to life or death? Sure beards taketh away but they giveth too. Plus you can store meds and emergency medical supplies in them, making you a walking one-man restorative health machine.

Scalpels and X-rays are too mainstream. I grow my own leeches and hand-wash all my bloodletting equipment.

Hipster morticians make the worst messes though, always cutting into cadavers before they are cool

I diagnosed a lipofibromatous hamartoma yesterday. Seriously. You've probably never heard of it.

But then I did a literature search and found 48 references. Too mainstream, man.

No farking doi. On both the hipster part and the bearded surgeon part.

But... But... What if you need a hip replacement?

Isn't this pretty much the same as the warning about doctors with ties? Just don't have crap on you that hangs in/stores filth if your job is cutting in people or being around a lot of people with a reduced immune functions.

Hammer toe? Hell, my mother has that.

Because their caviar always tastes like PBR?

Oh, surgeon. Never mind.
