A new study by The Associated Press has found surgical scrub hat usage among surgeons is on the rise.
In the study, the AP looked at the surgical scrub helmets used by over 6,000 U.S. surgeons in the past three years.
The researchers looked at helmet usage by surgical surgeons based on patient experience.
The study found that more than 60% of surgical scrub-hat surgeons have had surgery, a number that was up from 57% in the previous study.
In 2016, there were 9,700 surgical scrub helmet surgeons in America.
The researchers found that surgical scrub wearing increased over the past year, but it’s not clear why.
The study doesn’t examine helmet usage over the course of a surgeon’s career.
“I think a big part of it is the trend towards less and less surgery being done,” said Dr. Christopher Hickey, an assistant professor of medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and the study’s lead author.
“We can’t blame the trend on surgical scrub, but we can say we’re seeing a trend towards more surgical scrub.”
He said that some surgeons have been using the helmets for decades, so it’s easy to see why they’re on the increase.
Hickey said that for surgeons who are less likely to perform surgery, surgical scrub can help them be less anxious.
“Surgeons who are a little less nervous and are having more fun with their jobs, are going to be less likely, and they’re going to enjoy their work more,” he said.
But the study also found that there were a number of surgeons who reported wearing surgical scrub and it wasn’t just for aesthetic reasons.
Hospital staff also had less of a say in the helmet’s usage.
The AP looked for patterns in surgical scrub usage, such as which surgeons wore the helmets and whether or not they had surgery.
The data was compiled by the Hospital Infectious Disease Control and Prevention and the Centers for Disease Control, and it included information from the U.N. Department of Health and Human Services, U.K. Department for Health, and the American Hospital Association.
The analysis showed that surgeons who had had surgery had the most frequent helmet usage.
In fact, about 10% of surgeons reported using surgical scrub as their primary helmet, the study found.
In 2017, the U
