Jon, Kristin, Brad & Cass sit down to talk about communicating with preceptors. This talk will be helpful for SRNAs who are hitting the clinical environment for the first time. This podcast was recorded during our anesthesia training and hopefully will give new SRNAs a student’s perspective on communicating with preceptors.
- Importance of communication skills in the perioperative environment
- How to prepare for clinicals
- Tips for making pre-clinical phone calls to preceptors
- The use of cell phones/electronic devices in the OR
- Common questions preceptors ask students
- Transitioning from day one of clinical to being a senior anesthesia student
- Importance of being teachable, flexible, humble and thankful
By the way, the max dose of methylene blue is… 7-8 mg/kg.
“Methylene blue 1 to 2 mg/kg over 5 minutes (maximum dose, 7-8 mg/kg) reverses methemoglobinemia, but the patient should be monitored for the reoccurrence of symptoms” (Ouellette, 2011, p. 126).
And if you’re looking for the “smooth and in” video Cass eluded to, here it is. To be honest, it’s pretty cheesy. We were shown this video in the first weeks of anesthesia school and told that our goal was to be “smooth and in.”
