The Top Drawer Run Down is a 3-part series covering the 39 most commonly administered intravenous medications in anesthesia. These medications are often found in the top drawer of anesthesia carts in the United States. The Top Drawer Run Down was originally posted on From the Head of the Bed… a podcast for the anesthesia community in September of 2019.
Michael Mielniczek, MSN, CRNA joins me to deliver the run down on these medications. Michael has a deep interest in pharmacology and completed his anesthesia training with a Master’s in Nursing from the University of Scranton in 2018. He joined me on Episode 3 of Anesthesia Guidebook for a deep dive into succinylcholine, a medication that was the focus of his graduate degree research. He has spoken at state CRNA conferences on succinylcholine, as well as at the national AANA Annual Congress.
