Nurse Anesthetist Community enables you to reach certified registered nursing anesthetists (CRNA) who provide anesthesia services. These nursing professionals have specialized training and certification in how to administer anesthesia to patients having surgery or other procedures. In many hospitals, nurse anesthetists have the primary responsibility to administer anesthesia, whereas in others they work along anesthesiologists who are trained physicians. CRNA’s have completed a master of science in nursing degree program and passed a certification exam.
Nurse Anesthetists assist in surgical procedures throughout the day. Before each procedure they review the patient’s chart and interview the patient. Then they draw up a plan for the best choice of anesthesia drug and method, based on the procedure and the patient’s medical history. Upon conclusion of the surgical procedure, the nurse anesthetist may provide instructions and information to the patient's family about when to expect the patient to wake up and what side effects might be present.
CRNAs practice in every setting in which anesthesia is delivered: traditional hospital surgical suites and obstetrical delivery rooms; critical access hospitals; ambulatory surgical centers; the offices of dentists, podiatrists, ophthalmologists, plastic surgeons, and pain management specialists; and U.S. military, Public Health Services, and Department of Veterans Affairs healthcare facilities.
CRNA’s do anesthesia of all types.: general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, and spinal and epidural anesthesia. They have also spent time performing obstetric anesthesia and have mastered skills such as intubation, arterial line placement, central line and Swan-Ganz catheter placement, spinal anesthesia, and epidural catheter placement.
These medical professionals are required to attend continuing education classes to maintain their certification, depending on where they practice. Many also belong to professional organizations to maintain professional credentials. These seasoned professionals embrace their jobs with diversity, equity, and work/life balance. They look to editorials to help them achieve a deeper knowledge in their field. Also by using career advancement resources such as online continuing education or certificate programs, social networking sites to make personal and professional connections, attending trade shows, and networking at industry events, these professionals achieve a better understanding of their field.
This list is ideal for any nursing or health continuing education courses, medical supplies, business publications, uniform catalogs, insurance, and credit card offers.
