From the author of Survive CRNA School, this book continues the mission of helping students get past the daunting task of becoming a nurse anesthetist. This is not meant as a replacement for the education you receive in school, but rather as a way to remember some of the difficult things that tend to slip away at times. For example, if you’re having trouble keeping track of the bleeding risk for placenta accreta, increta, and percreta, it’s covered here in the Pediatrics/Obstetrics section. Can’t remember Guedel’s stages of anesthesia or how to calculate fluid maintenance? You’ll find that in the Anesthesia Basics section. Although this book is geared toward student CRNAs, it has helpful information that can be utilized by any type of aspiring anesthesia provider.
Anesthesia school is an uphill battle that’s difficult and exhausting for anyone brave enough to give it a shot. There’s a reason it’s hard. If it were easy, everyone would do it. But it can also be a very rewarding experience, especially once you’re done. In the meantime, try to get any advantage you can to make your life easier. CRNA Mnemonics does exactly that.
