Meet the CRNA By Robin Madson Meet Brian Peterson, CRNA, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist for Tracy Area Medical Services, Westbrook Health Center and Murray County Hospital and Clinic. Peterson received his Masters Degree in Nurse Anesthesiology from Mayo School of Health Sciences, Rochester. As important as his job is, most people do not realize his roll in health care and insuring the safest surgical experience possible. As Peterson states, I want the public to understand that Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists provide over 65% of all anesthetics in the U.S. For more than 100 years, nurse anesthetists have been administering aqesthesia in all types of surgical cases, using all anesthetic techniques and practicing in every setting in which anesthesia is adminis- tered. So the logical question is: What does a CRNA actu- ally do? When preparing for a surgeD; Peterson evalu- ates the patient's health sta- tus prior to surgery or proce- dure and tailors the anes- thetic for that specific patient. Anesthesia could mean general anesthesia (totally asleep), or varying degrees of sedation and pain relief, or special nerve blocks. Peterson values this preparation time for the patient's benefit, and his own. I enjoy helping people understand what it is I will be helping them with. I want the patient to be fully informed about their anes- thesia and answer all ques- tions. According to Peterson, the challenge in doing this is the wide variety of ages and health statuses (which) always keeps me on my toes. Also, the scheduling can be difficult when covering three hospitals. Trends in the medical field show short term and chronic pain management as a burgeoning specialty field requiring incredible technol. ogy and ongoing education. Peterson advises those inter- ested in Anesthesiology to excel in math and especially science courses. Find a great Bachelor of Nursing pro- gram. I would advise any- body to find their niche in the health care field - it is wide open and exciting. Demand is rising given the aging baby boomer popula- tion. A word of advice to his patients would be: Find a way to stop smoking and start any program to increase your activity level, no matter what your age.

Storden firefighters receive grant U.S. Senator Mark Dayton announced recently that the Storden Department has been awarded a $130,000 federal grant from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Office for Domestic Preparedness. The award, provided under the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program, will improve the effectiveness of firefight- ing operations through the purchase of a new fire engine. First-responders are vital to our nation's security and to the well-being of small and large communities across MN, said Dayton. This federal grant will allow Storden firefighters to pur- chase much needed equip- ment which is necessary for them to be prepared for any emergency. The federal Assistance to Fire fighters Grant Program assists rural, urban, and suburban fire departments throughout the United States with prepar- ing for emergencies and responding to acts of terror- ism.
