    Any gtts that you use frequently in the ICU would be a good place to start. Also maybe know about the different disease processes you normally see in your unit.

    I didn't do anything special ahead of time when I shadowed and I didn't get as much out of it as I could. Spend a little bit of time researching the volatile anesthetic gases (sevoflurane, desflurane, and isoflurane). Propofol, midazolam, fentanyl, and muscle relaxants would be a great starting point.

    I also recommend reading a little bit about the airway and what structures are down there. Simple, but a good starting point.
