Yikes - I have to have oral surgery on Thursday and I called the office today to see who was ACLS certified and when the last time someone was intubated at the office. I also asked about oxygen, the meds used, reversal agents available, suction availability and how many cases did they do a week?
Haven't received a call back from them yet!! Hmmm lol
You know Trauma, when I went for my wisdom teeth, I had Diprivan in the oral surgeon's office. I actually didn't study up too much for it - didn't get any of the anesthetic details ahead of time, just knew they were going to 'put me out.'
As the oral surgeon was injecting the stuff, I asked him what he was using. He told me, 'Propofol, Demerol, and...' I distinctly remember that there was a third drug, but it was too fuzzy to make out, then I was gone.
I know there's a huge debate about Propofol and non-anesthesia providers, but all I know is that Propofol is some good stuff.
One thing I did notice was that the BVM in the procedure room looked like it was made in 1962. I decided that this was actually a good thing, because they must not have many people arrest.
