Hello. I was recently researching the leading causes of death in the United States and found respiratory issues as one of the top five. This made me wonder what CRNA's are exposed to in their work environment. Do CRNA's inhale or work with known carcinogens? Are you exposed to any other dangers such as radiation? Do you feel safe in your work environment or do you worry you may develop health complications from the substances you are exposed to? I ask because I am a nursing student who is considering a career as a CRNA and my health is very important to me. Thank you.
