O.R. cases for CRNA's vs. AnesthesiologistsRegister Today!
- by ICU, RN, BSN, B.S. Oct 9, '11Hey guys. I was hoping I could get some CRNA's opinions on this matter.
Do you find that the CRNA's tend to do the "easier cases"....i.e. ENT and ortho, and then the MDA will do the more difficult cases, i.e. cardiac or complicated GI??
Is this true, or not true?? Can someone explain all of this to me ?
Thanks so much

- Oct 9, '11 by MikeRNWIQuote from meandragonbrettSo... I had to reread. I first saw this say head and heart transplants.... I was really intrigued and perplexed with the concept of head transplants....Not true. Our CRNAs do heads, hearts, and transplants.
