Any question dealing with general anesthesia issues. With particular emphasis on regional anesthesia.

JM Starkman, MD

(U.S.) Board-Certified anesthesiologist also certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Pediatric Advanced Life Support. I can answer questions related and specific to clinical anesthesia issues, problems, concerns and methods--both pediatric and adult. This includes matters that are strictly anesthesia in nature and also in other related medical specialties that impact various patient management decisions (e.g. asthmatic undergoing surgery) during or around the time of an anesthetic. I can answer questions about becoming a physician and specifically an anesthesiologist, and practicing anesthesiology. I am not a researcher or academic, so questions so-related are for someone else. I can tell you what a nightmare government involvement in medicine has been and will continue to be as it escalates.

Former ICU/ER RN with several years of experience. I can answer questions relating to the CRNA education process, professional issues involved, as well as questions about adult and pediatric clinical anesthesia.

Mike MacKinnon MSN FNP-C CRNA

I am a former Trauma Flight RN now a Family Nurse Practitioner and a Nurse Anesthetist (CRNAs). I can help answer questions on the CRNA profession and clinical anesthesia. I work full time as an independent practice CRNA and have a special interest in regional anesthesia, particularly peripheral nerve blocks. I also teach ultrasound regional anesthesia and lecture all over the country. If I do not know the answer, I will find it for you.
