We know CRNAs are busy with limited time. That’s why we want to bring you clinical updates and reviews that are pertinent to your anesthesia practice.
This is Beyond the Mask – Clinical Edition with Jeremy Heiner and Sass Elisha.
Together, Jeremy and Sass have a combined 40 years of experience teaching anesthesia students and CRNAs. They speak nationally and at state associations, and also continue to practice anesthesia in the operating room.
