Hi. I have been a lurker here for some time and have gleaned a great amount of useful info, but I recently ran into a situation that left me with some questions.

I helped transferred a Pt to the OR the other night for an emergent procedure and was asked to stay for the procedure. As events transpired the Pt went into an accelerated rhythm and esmolol was pushed by the MDA to kick her out. If this had been a CRNA, and not an MDA, would that have been in their scope of practice to make that decision and deliver the med...or would it have technically been the surgeon that would have to "order" the med. Exactly how far does the authority of a CRNA go when administering meds in the OR?

Thanks in advance
