Administering anesthesia is the most fun someone can have and still get paid for it. My days are short-not many cases or very long--lots of OB and/or emergencies. You have a lot of information in your head and have seconds to figure out a difficult situation. On the other hand, it can be very boring, especially on long cases with slow surgeons. But then, I like boring when it comes to anesthesia, because that means things are going well. I know many CRNAs who are doing anesthesia well into their late 70's and still love it. Just so you don't think it is a piece of cake--anesthesia is applied pharmacology, so you have to be good in math, in problem solving and in keeping up with changes in anesthesia, surgery, internal medicine, pediatrics and OB.
