    PACU vs OR

    Thank you for your response.... Do you think it would be beneficial if I sign up for the critical care course offered by my hospital..... I was looking at one of the requirements for PACU....... I know for the OR Program they talk about Anesthesia and Malignant Hyperthermia as part of the OR Program....

    PACU vs OR

    Hello Everyone, I have been a Cardiac RN at a Level 1 Trauma Center in Philadelphia for a total of 4 years now. the last two years working with MVR, AVR, TAVR, CABGS/open heart surgery patients. They come to my Progressive Cardiac Care Unit b/t one or two days after surgery depending on there hemodynamic stability from HVICU......I absolutely LOVE it. I Love surgical patients and taking care of them.... I want more in my career and I am willing to go after my passion which is EVERYTHING SURGERY related. I was thinking about the OR; BUT decided that PACU nursing may be the right fit for me...... Especially since I will have the opportunity to utilize my assessment skills, a lot... I am quick on my feet, and love the fast paced, crazy environment...... I know AIRWAY/RESPIRATORY, PAIN, etc... are huge to control after surgery..... And I NEED a Challenge....... My Hospital here in Philly offers a Critical Care Course..... as I was looking at the Requirements' to enter into PACU.... My question and maybe some advice on what I can do to better prepare myself for the PACU like reading materials, CDs', online training modules, ANYTHING..... Because when I apply, I want everything to be in order......I am open to any suggestions or tips on how I should proceed???? Thank you:)

    Inspired to be an Periop RN

    Hello Everyone:wavey: I have been a Cardiology RN for over 2yrs and was given an opportunity to observe an TAVR and MVR in the OR....it was an amazing experience to be up close and watch the team perform this important surgery. I currently work at a huge medical center in the tri-state area that is constantly expanding.... I had the chance to attend a Periop Function which I learned so much and spoke with a few nurses who liked my enthusiasm for the profession and encourage me to sign up for the next Periop Class.... which I am definitely going to do...... I want to ask if anyone knows of a good surgical instrument book with a CD or even an App on the go.. or both..... that will give me a basic idea and familiarize myself with the surgical instruments and what the uses are for????? I would appreciate it very much.... my hospital will probably start another class late summer or early fall.... so I want to be proactive in my learning process.....
