This was the coolest anesthesia site around...then the heavy hitters (snowflakes) took their toys and went home. Ironic' 'cause most of them were the loudest chest beaters about how CRNA's are as bad ass as MDA's. Gone they all are now...SDN endures and flourishes. Just search something like "right atrial pressure" or "RV failure" on the site search function and you'll learn more than you could in any lecture in anesthesia school. If there is one thing that puts CRNA's at a disadvantage against anesthesiologists it is our breathtaking ego's. Yes kids, it is possible to have a bigger ego than an anesthesiologist and being a CRNA helps a lot, at least on this site.

So, just a shot in the dark, just to see if anyone cares about anything else than getting into school and making 6 figures (just to pay off 6 figure debt) and show anesthesiologists who's really boss....then leaving work as soon as you possibly can 'cause you got better stuff to do...

How do you use CVP/RAP? Do you? Is it useful? If so when? If not, why not? Trauma? Sepsis? Post op cardiac surgery?
