Chemistry and Physics for Nurse Anesthesia
The importance of the physical
sciences in anesthesia goes without saying, and every one of our students
knows this. While we were continually impressed by the ability and motivation
of our students, we were struck by the obvious: these students possessed only a
minimal background in chemistry and almost no background in physics. Additionally,
their math skills often were very rusty. We recommended that students
review elementary physics and general chemistry textbooks.
