    General anesthetics have been replaced by milder forms of sedation for many surgeries today, and these along with local anesthetics obviously require far less monitoring than general. Not true....

  12. Introduction - along with a few questions
    I would say, while she's working on her BSN, she should start working. Her job might even offer tuition assistance for getting her BSN. If she hasn't already gotten into some "get your RN &...

  14. Fospropofol
    I think that earlier concerns about a Propofol shortage may have given Fospropofol a bit of a shove out the door. AANA said it was made available for use on Nov 16th, 2009.

  20. Nurses can't draw blood, its always hemolyzed
    I wouldn't think they would be putting in so many central lines in the ER. It might be the tubes are bad. Or maybe the phlebotomist is using a different needle-set to draw blood?
