The Everyday Life of a CRNA

February 23, 2017

CRNAs (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists) are a foundational element to the entire anesthesiology industry. But many people don’t know what the everyday life of a CRNA is like. Today, we’d like to take you behind the scenes and show you what these amazing professionals do every day – and how they strive to serve their patients to the best of their ability.

What Does a CRNA Do?

For CRNAs, the number one priority every day is to give patients safe access to anesthesia care. As you can imagine, this comes with a great amount of responsibility and accountability. Many patients are nervous about their upcoming procedure, and it is the CRNA who connects with these patients upon arrival and sets the tone for the entire experience. Seemingly small things, like offering a warm blanket to the patient, can go a long way in helping them feel calm.

Additionally, a CRNA makes sure that the patient is informed about the details of the procedure before it happens. They answer questions and reassure the patient that they will be present from start to finish. The CRNA monitors vital signs during the procedure, and makes adjustments to anesthesia accordingly.

What Are the Biggest Challenges for CRNAs?

Many of a CRNA’s struggles can be traced back to the health care industry itself. With ever-changing policies, patient care is often determined by a governing body who has no connection to the patient as opposed to the health care provider who is personally assessing the patient. Because of this, many CRNAs are not able to do what they truly believe should be done, and must instead stick to a one-size-fits-all policy.

What Are the Biggest Rewards for CRNAs?

The greatest rewards for a CRNA are usually intangible. Connecting with a Veteran and hearing stories from their time in service can be quite emotional, as well as being in the room when a baby is born.

The truth is that CRNAs are incredible people. They love to connect with patients, they take their jobs very seriously, and they strive to provide the very best health care possible. If you know a CRNA, thank them today – and if you are a CRNA, thank you!
