The James Blish novelization of "Court Martial" called it a modified 'white noise generator.' Which makes perfect sense to have during a delicate operation in a hospital setting, filtering out various environmental sounds (read: onboard ship noises) to allow McCoy and Chapel to concentrate on what they're doing and (post-op) allowing their patients to rest without the constant thrum of the ship's systems in their ears.
That's a very good explanation.
