Every one of us has been asked to make sacrifices and change behaviors to save lives during this tragic COVID-19 pandemic. Those on the front lines — physicians, nurses, paramedics, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and other specialists — have literally been asked to risk their lives to help others live. According to the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists, health care facilities have tapped Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists, or CRNAs, to leverage our unique skills during this crisis. CRNAs play a crucial role in providing life-saving critical care for patients impacted by COVID-19. CRNAs are qualified to provide this vital care because of our education, licensure, and certification.
