Additional Comments: Show up WHEN or before the time you are listed to arrive each day: have your protocols aproved and the doses calculated in mLs. The anesthesia technicians can teach you a lot, protect your from the demands of the many services requiring anesthesia services, and make your life enjoyable, so be prepared to work with them. One person will be assigned daily to Recovery and their job is also to service the anesthetic machines at the end of the day; but it is much more pleasant if all of the students help clean up. Everyone should spend approximately one day each week in Large Animal Anesthesia, although you can trade with rotation colleagues for more days in LA Anesthesia if that is an area of interest for you.
