Problem: Anxiety prior to surgery is an expected emotion. Research has been conducted on methods to reduce anxiety prior to entering the operating room (OR). These studies have involved some form of distraction, almost all finding that some form of distraction prior to entering the OR decreases both physiologic signs and patient reports of anxiety. Very few of these studies have carried the intervention into the OR itself. Steris Corporation has developed an automated surgical suite environmental system, called SignatureSuite™, that controls the level of lighting, images on OR monitors, and ambient background audio via preset, computerized automation for use before and after anesthesia. The research question is: What is the effect of the SignatureSuite OR environment on patient anxiety and analgesic use? Study methods: The proposed study will be a two arm randomized controlled trial. Randomization will occur at the surgeon level, based on SignatureSuite operating room environment (experimental group) versus a standard Marymount Hospital operating room environment (control group).
Data collection: The study will take place in the perioperative department of Cleveland Clinic's Marymount Hospital. Patient anxiety will be measured before and after surgery using an anxiety visual analog scale (VAS). Data about patient characteristics will be retrieved retrospectively by chart review. The effect of SignatureSuite on OR time will also be determined.
Sample characteristics: The patient sample will comprise patients undergoing thyroid and/or parathyroid surgery at Cleveland Clinic Marymount Hospital.
Sample size: 40 subjects per group will provide adequate power to detect large effect sizes (0.80) and is feasible in a reasonable period of time.

Experimental: SignatureSuite OR
The intervention is exposure to the operating room environment created by the device SignatureSuite OR Integration System by STERIS Corporation.
Device: SignatureSuite OR Integration System by STERIS Corporation
SignatureSuite OR Integration System by STERIS Corporation is a device that controls audio and visual components of the operating room environment in order to provide a more relaxing and calming operating room environment for patients prior to surgery and on emergence from anesthesia after surgery.
Other Name: SignatureSuite
No Intervention: Standard OR
Standard operating room without SignatureSuite OR Integration System by STERIS Corporation.
- Change (Difference) in Anxiety [ Time Frame: Pre-operatively to post-operatively ]Change (difference) in anxiety level as measured by a 100 millimeter line visual analog scale from baseline (pre-operative) to arrival in post anesthesia care unit (post-operative).The anxiety visual analog scale quantifies current state of anxiety. It is measured on a 100 millimeter line with anchors "No anxiety" to "The most anxiety I can imagine." Participants make a mark across the line to represent their current state of anxiety. A millimeter ruler is used to measure from left to right with the number of millimeters recorded where the mark crosses the line, minimum score is 0 and maximum score is 100. Higher number means more anxiety.
- Difference Between Pre-operative Systolic Blood Pressure and a Mean of 3 Post-operative Systolic Blood Pressures [ Time Frame: Pre-operative to post-operative ]Difference between pre-operative systolic blood pressure and a mean of 3 post-operative systolic blood pressures assessed at 15, 30 and 45 minutes after placement in post-anesthesia care unit
- Difference Between Pre-operative Heart Rate and a Mean of 3 Post-operative Heart Rates [ Time Frame: Pre-operative to post-operative ]Difference between pre-operative heart rate and a mean of 3 post-operative heart rates assessed at 15, 30 and 45 minutes after placement in post-anesthesia care unit
- Analgesic Use [ Time Frame: Postoperatively ]Number of people requiring analgesia in the post-anesthesia care unit
