1. I just wanted to thank everyone for making this a successful forum. When I first arrived here, about the same time as wintermute did. There was very little traffic sometimes you would wait days if not weeks for a response.

    Now this forum is the fourth busiest in the nursing specialties forum, soon to surpass ob and ER sections.

    Again thanks, the content has improved, and I feel there is a great deal more signal than noise there. You guys rock.

    Although my posts are minimum, I check out this site as often as I check my email. I consider it very beneficial reading posts from SRNA's such as yourself, Craig, whose shoes I hope to be in very soon. I also appreciate the extremely salient posts of Kevin and Qwiigley; their posts bring immense profundity. Props to you all...

    I think that nursing like the physician practice has become diversified in what type of nursing we practice. The areas I feel I am strong in I hope to help others understand it and the areas I am weak in others are strong in to share their knowledge with me. Wow what a sentence!!!!!!!!!!LOL

    Epidural or spinal? Where's your gloves? Goin' free Willy?

    From the picture, I would say that it is a picture of a spinal or epidural puncture, and the blue is a fenestrated drape on the patients back. The patient apears to be seated. bonus round time, what are the ligaments the needle will pass through in the midline aproach, and how would you treat a wet tap? What physical input will you get that indicates the depth of your needle, and the coresponding space the tip is in? Also, please discuss PDPH treatment and prevention techniques.

    There is a typical oral exam question from my exam last week.
