What are your roles in the OR? Do you work with Anesthia lines? Do you transport the patient to the unit without a IABP? Do you prepare the initial gases for the nurses? I need some clear guidelines on perfusion's direct or indirect patient care?

Dana,
This is late but I thought I'd share my roles. I transitioned into multitasking in 1996 as an RN/CCP. We ran perfusion, POCT, STS data collection and surgical assisting via SVG harvest/wound closure/2nd assist, etc... After surgery we transferred the patient and help the CICU RNs recover the patients for 3-5 hours and were the 2nd set of eyes for the surgeons we worked for. After moving on my practice went to assisting Anesthesia with Swans, A-lines then supporting Gen. surgery after our hearts, STS, 3 different committees and providing inservices for the OR staff. The gamut is vast but that's my distant experience.
