    Are you looking for pre-op medications administered by nursing or the heavy duty anesthetics administered by the CRNA or anesthesiologist?

    Nursing will handle the pre-op medications such as a sedative, and other medications related to the surgery (GI surgery gets certain cocktails, some open procedures get IV antibiotics). The induction drugs, paralytics, and anesthetics are determined by a combination of factors--the length of the procedure, type of procedure, patient's anesthesia risk score/co-morbid conditions, respiratory status, physician preference or hospital formulary.
