0May 14, '14 by ajw49886I work in a endoscopy unit with 10 procedure rooms. You typically work in three different areas.
Pre, post, or procedures. The procedures vary, we have a peds rooms, a bronchoscopy room, 4 anesthesia rooms which typically specialize in ercp's and eus's and then 4 conscious sedation rooms. We typically do 40-60 outpatients a day while fitting in inpatients wherever we can. It's hard work. I am on my feet a lot more than when I was med surg. Anesthesia rooms are a little better since the crna's are managing true sedation and airway.
0Aug 9, '14 by becka9I say the thrill of doing EMR, ESD, ERCP gluing Esophageal Varices, banding, glueing fistulas, draining pancreatic cysts, capsule endoscopy, Bravo Ph monitoring and saving a patient who is bleeding out in the ICU for a few makes my day. Love Endoscopy been doing it for 20 some years now even published in the ASGE It's a great job!!!!
