    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    Don't be sorry about expressing your thoughts and opinions. I truly wish I had not heard those comments myself. I've only known a very small number of CRNAs in my life. The majority of my OR experience was in a children's hospital that did not employ CRNAs. I assure you that I am not a troll. Hearing ridiculous and ludicrous comments from surgeons, other RNs, LPNs, administrators in my very long career, has been a part of working in healthcare. Reading this thread has opened my eyes for the better. Thank all of you for educating me. And, I really like your screen name BigPappaCRNA.

    My son in law is in your shoes. He will be deployed soon for a remote assignment in a war torn country. He will come back changed, of course. My husband experienced this in Vietnam. Blessings and positive thoughts coming your way. It's a very difficult place that you are in.

    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    Every CRNA I have known has made comments to me that the anesthesiologists are too picky about high standards. If they would say something like that to me personally, who knows what their practice is like. This has been my experience in my professional life. Maybe some of you CRNAs who proclaim that you are as good as anesthesiologists, should have worked with me, then my experience and opinion would have changed. Believe me, I am not the least resentful of CRNAs, just don't have the confidence in them as I have expressed over and over. I had no desire to work autonomously. Anyway, I am retired and living the dream on my farm in the country and the other months in my home on the oceanfront.

    CRNA, Anesthesiologist Relationships

    I obviously believe that DO=MD or I wouldn't be trusting my DO with my life. In my personal experience , I have dealt with DOs who were not as well trained as PAs...just saying and FWIW, I'm done here with trying to express my first amendment rights to my own opinion. I am not the one who called a poster ignorant and laughable.

    CRNA, Anesthesiologist Relationships

    And I will tell you why...the first DO I ever met was weak clinically and had to ask the PAs for help in patient situations. She did not score well on the MCAT so she went to DO school. Some PAs are the best providers I have ever met. Obviously, DOs and PAs and MDs have good and bad practitioners. My current physician is a DO and I could not find anyone better to treat me. So, I will just carry on being ignorant and laughable...and I won't change, bahahaha and I will tell my doctor you said so.

    Are there CRNAs doing open heart cases in NYC?

    Certainly hope that CRNAs are not taking CVOR cases without MDs. Flame away...

    I really hope you are not calling me personally laughable and ignorant. I was saying my personal opinion based on experience in the military. I love my DO peronal physician !

    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    oh dear, my twins have nothing to do with much of this with the exception of what they went through in med school. I am speaking for the most part from my experience of a CVOR nurse with MD anesthesiologists. I did request an MD to provide my anesthesia mostly because that 's what I was most familiar.

    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    This sounds like the good proof that I was interested in. I am not so biased as a mother. I am more biased as a CVOR nurse seeing that anesthesia is most important in the OR. I just wish I could interview my provider ( if needed) before any procedures. Thanks for the info

    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    Oh my goodness, "dating a med student , etc, " makes one an expert on their training? If you are not a physician, you have no idea. Wow, I was an OR nurse, CVOR for 10 years and saw anesthesia up close and personal. My SIL is an anesthesiologist, if that makes any difference. Good Heavens....wishing you the best.

    Hey Hogger, are you a doc? What is a nursing montage??

    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    MD residents have touched many, many patients in their 4 years of medical school. One of my daughters was removing a skin issue in her first year of medical school ( first few weeks) in a derm clinic. Show me a BSN student or ICU nurse that has done that. I've been in both of those situations. Medical students ( my daughters have delivered babies, worked in the OR, ER, etc...If you have not experienced a medical student's life then please think, before you speak, about "residents who have never touched a patient".

    CRNAs: We are the Answer

    Because they don't. Show me and I'm very willing to see, a BSN program that has an entire year of anatomy of a human being being dissected and discussed as a team effort in the very first year of medical school...BSN education does not require organic chemistry or other very difficult science courses at the undergraduate level. I would not be a graduate of my BSN program if that was the case. I worked in the SICU right after graduation with a BSN and would not have even considered that I was qualified to apply to CRNA school. My daughters are both MDs so I know of what I speak. Education is the background and the intensive testing involved to become an MD( MCAT) and stay in medical school and beyond. STEP 1 and 2 and all the Shelf exams. They are both fellowship trained and board certified in their specialties. Show me a CRNA who has accomplished the the above. Please.

    THIS is the best reply I have read on this thread. Good food for thought. Yes, sad about Joan Rivers and true.
