My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An observational, witty and insightful read...

An anesthetist nurse is a registered nurse who has educational training in administering anesthesia. They work in hospitals mostly in the surgical areas where they administer anesthesia to patients who are going in for surgery. Their work is to make sure that the patients get enough levels of the drug before they can go in for their procedures or surgeries. This is a very sensitive job and thus the nurse needs to have special training on how to handle the anesthesia and the anesthetics in the proper way. They also need to have experience working with patient care.

50 Years in the OR: True Stories of Life, Loss, and Laughter While Giving Anesthesia by Ronald Whitchurch was a fascinating observational, entertaining and insightful read. The author communicates almost 50 years of experience by sharing many stories and anecdotes about the growth of his profession. At times, this book was emotional and heartrending while also sprinkled throughout with entertaining and hilarious stories.

A highly recommended and must-read for anyone interested in, or considering entering into, the medical profession. The book contains adult themes so would make it unsuitable for the younger (or squeamish) reader. A well-deserved five stars from me.
