According to the
American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) are advanced practice
registered nurses who administer approximately 40 million anesthetics
to patients in the United States each year.
CRNAs are the primary providers of
anesthesia care in rural America, enabling healthcare facilities in medically underserved
areas to offer diagnostic, obstetrical, surgical, and trauma stabilization services.
Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) play a crucial role in
the success of a variety of medical procedures. CRNA's work with surgeons,
anesthesiologists, dentists, podiatrists, and other professionals to ensure
the safe administration of anesthesia. CRNA responsibilities include:
- providing pain management
- assisting with stabilization services
- and overseeing patient recovery.
At Campbell County Health, CRNAs and anesthesiologists work as a team to
provide exceptional patient care. We’d like to say thank you to
all the CRNAs who practice in our community and continue to provide Excellence
