Just curious as to how those of you who are CRNAs handle/cope with the stressors of the profession? Are their specific "pearls" that you have found to be effective that you could share ? I'm thinking of strategies both on and off the job...
Looking forward to your replies

The best thing to do to decrease stress "on the job" is to know your profession well. The more you know about your profession, the less you will have "surprises", and the lower your stress levels will be.
Always have several backup plans in mind even for what apears to be the simplest of cases. Preparation is the best stress reliever.
And always be alert and vigilant.
