  5. How do you pick your vein for an IV?

  7. Does it bother CRNA's that MDA's get so much more...?
    Carol, when a poster comes into a CRNA forum and chooses to inaccurately describe our profession, education, licensing and even our title….they are going to get called out on it. The original...

  8. Does it bother CRNA's that MDA's get so much more...?

  13. Why no air bubbles in IV lines for cardiac patients?
    Look up right to left shunts and this will give you a good idea of the people at risk. The majority of the time a small amount of air in the venous system goes to the right side of the heart, into...

  14. Hematocrit & Hemoglobin differences in dehydration vs blood loss

  15. Can I be a CRNA with Malignant Hyperthermia?
    I find this statement quite amusing. What do you think YOUR healthcare provider (FP or even internist) knows about MH? I guarantee you it is less than that of a first year SRNA or AA student. ...
