  • Regional anesthesia; A quick introduction
    Kelli Warns RN BSN
    This article offers a small introduction and overview regarding regional anesthesia. You have nerves that run all through your body.

  • Young and Healthy in the PACU
    Joanna Pompei Suhanovsky
    Some patients in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU) are young and or very healthy. These qualities sometimes give the impression that there will not be complications from surgery or anesthesia.

I have seen a number of patients who have no health problems experience side effects from anesthesia and surgery.
  • Anesthesia Awareness for Perioperative Nurses
    Joan Boczany
    Anesthesia awareness definition is an unexpected recall of events while under general anesthesia. The majority of the authors place the rate of anesthesia awareness to one patient out of every one thousand patients that experience some form of anesthesia awareness, however the exact mechanism of the pharmacological action of anesthetic is not clearly understood.
  • Medication Induced Bradycardia
    Gina Noggle RN BSN
