I was watching one of those shows like " Trauma Life in the ER" and one of the shots showed the woman's name badge who was standing at the head of the bed. The camera showed that she was a CRNA.. It was quite cool for me to see this. I obviously know that a CRNA is fully able skill wise to function in the ER or trauma situation but I was just wondering specifically what they do for the patient once the airway is secured and properly managed. I know i have seen some of the regulars like MmacFN( sorry for spelling your name wrong if I did) post about working down in a ER/trauma setting. Since the patient interaction is so fast pace do CRNA's administer anesthesia in this environment. Also what other things during a typical trauma case do CRNAs do for the patient specifically. Thanks in advance for your insights
