Ah, Cathy - you're probably going to have a number of individuals post here about CRNAs (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists) and physician anesthetists/anesthesiologists. For brevity, know that these two proud and qualified professions hold themselves up to the same high standard of care, and both have outstanding safety records. As you might expect - there is a bit of rivalry between them. But your statement about CRNAs seems to put them in a lower tier than their physician counterparts - and that's in poor taste. CRNAs provide anesthesia just as physicians do - as safely, and as efficiently - and this has been documented over and over for decades.
