WHAT’S A SURGEON WITHOUT HIS CYAN GOWN?

In the 19th century, surgeons wore white gowns, but in the 20th century surgeons began to wear cyan or green surgical gowns, for several reasons.

  • First, in the brightly-lit operating room, green reflected less light than white and caused less strain on the eyes of the medical team.
  • Second, cyan is the complementary color of red, so red blood on a cyan gown looks black or gray, and not red, and is not as vivid.
  •  Lastly, since green is considered one of the most restful and soothing colors, it causes less anxiety to patients.

Another lovely soul, Nadyess, has shared with us her favourite colour at the comment box and Cyan happens to be her favourite colour.

The reason why Nadyess loves Cyan:

She was born on an Island and because of all the different blue colors from the sea she always used to like that part the most.

Now, let’s read on to find out some little history that we’ve extracted from the lovely Wikipedia:

The name Cyan is derived from the Greek: κύανoς, transliterated kýanos, meaning “dark blue”.

It was formerly known as “cyan blue” or cyan-blue  and its first recorded use of as a color name in English was in 1879.

Further origins of the color name can be traced back to a dye produced from the cornflower (Centaurea cyanus).

Wikipedia: CMYK Colour Model

In the CMYK color model, used in color printing, cyan is one of the primary colors, along with magenta, yellow, and black, which can be overlaid to produce all different colors.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cyan is the color of shallow water over a sandy beach. The water absorbs the color red from the sunlight, leaving a greenish-blue color.

Pure water is nearly colorless. However, it does absorb slightly more red light than blue, giving large volumes of water a bluish tint; increased scattering of blue light due to fine particles in the water shifts the blue color toward green, for a typically cyan net color.

Cyan is associated with making someone feel better and protection, as well as being associated with good health from getting exercise by going swimming.

For this reason, cyan colored tiles are often used to pave swimming pools to make the water within them seem more intensely colored, and therefore more inviting

Now I know why I keep having this inner urge to jump into a swimming pool whenever I spotted one.
