Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) administer and provide anesthesia care to patients before, during and after surgery. CRNAs remain at the patient’s side to monitor, collaborate and provide comprehensive anesthesia care for them throughout a surgery or medical procedure. They are essential to the healthcare workforce.
There’s a major difference between an anesthesiologist and a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA). Both administer anesthesia, but their educational and career paths differ. Anesthesiologists are medical doctors with medical school and residency training background. Nurse anesthetists are registered nurses with a nursing educational and professional background in anesthesiology and critical care, who collaborate with other healthcare professionals in administering anesthesia.
At Kentucky Anesthesia Group, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) provide anesthesia in collaboration with surgeons, anesthesiologists and other qualified healthcare professionals. CRNAs practice in every setting in which anesthesia is delivered, including traditional hospital surgical suites, obstetrical delivery rooms and ambulatory surgical centers.
CRNAs administer anesthesia for all types of surgical cases, from the simplest to the most complex. Our nurse anesthetists at Kentucky Anesthesia Group administer medications to keep patients asleep or pain-free during surgery and they constantly monitor every biological function of the patient’s body.
Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) are crucial to providing all parties with a full understanding of how a procedure needs to be approached to ensure maximum safety and comfort for each patient. CRNAs provide anesthesia and related care before and after surgical, therapeutic and diagnostic procedures. They provide anesthetics to patients of all ages, from infants to the elderly.
