Air Force Anesthesia: Ether and Pentothal?
Posted by Clark Venable on 4/5/2006
The U.S. Air Force physician recruitment web site has a web page for anesthesiologists which claims I can "administer such anesthetics as ether, sodium pentathol and nitrous oxide while maintaining life support of patients under your care."
Since ether hasn't been used in decades and few practicing anesthesiologists know how to administer it, that would explain why I'd have to "maintain life support of patients under [my] care." Seriously, doesn't anybody read this stuff before they post it on their site? There's not a single fact on that page to help me decide whether I'd like to learn more or 'contact an Air Force Advisor today.'
