Lead Players Need Less Bathroom Breaks



  • Another observation I made during my 3 week ICU admission is that the nurse caring for me noted he did not have to change my bladder irrigation bags nearly as frequently during the times I was practicing my pocket trumpet in my ICU bed. So I decided to do an experiment. I followed the drip rate of the flow from my urethral catheter. If readers recall, in my other medical post I acknowledged that I had tubes coming out from all over me, and I was not kidding. Here is what I observed:

    As long as I remained below the C on the staff, the urinary flow remained unchanged. However, as one proceeded from C to the F at the top of the staff, the urinary flow steadily dropped in rate. Once I played above the F (above the staff) ALL urinary flow stopped.

    So, for lead players that have their parts that hang a good part of the time above staff, I imagine less bathroom breaks are needed.

    I remember the days when my parts did that. ☺
