Basic Physics for Nurse Anesthesia

Basic Physics for Nurse Anesthesia

Michael Storm


Electrical Curcuits

What has electrical circuitry to do with anesthesia? Why do I need to know about Ohm's Law?
Cardiac output and electricity? What?
Well, there is more to anesthesia than turning the dial.

Fully Understand

It is beneficial when you fully understand the underpinnings of modern anesthesia. Although an old copper kettle is useful, it may not be the best choice for you!
Physics will help you understand and implement a better plan.

Read. Watch. Learn.

Boost your confidence, master "the field". Learn about Physics for Nurse Anesthesia and become a better CRNA. Your students do already know this, and there was a time when you did too. Bring back the knowledge. 
Physics is the core knowledge for all the anesthesia we do. Without a solid foundation in physics, it becomes challenging to understand what is happening during anesthesia. Whether an anesthetic gas comes out of the vaporizer, how the room temperature influences the patient's well-being and drug metabolism, why it matters what size endotracheal tube you use. All this and many, many other situations can only be answered and understood with a solid foundation in physics.

Become a better Nurse Anesthesiologist

In this course you will learn how to apply physics principles to your daily anesthetic practice. Michael will cover all the major physics principles that are necessary in our daily use of drugs, gasses, and machines in the operating room. 

Simple Testing

Instead of a long and cumbersome exam at the end, we will be testing your throughout the course with multiple single questions. After each section you receive one question, answer correctly and move on. If you miss the question, you have a total of three attempts to get it right. But you won't. At the end you will have earned your full certificate for 3 CE credits.

Michael Storm

Michael Storm, DNAP, CRNA graduated from University of South Carolina Nurse Anesthesia Program in 2005 with his Master of Nurse Anesthesia. In 2016 he earned his Doctorate of Nurse Anesthesia Practice from Missouri State University. 

Since 2006 he has been helping anesthesia students pass boards after starting a review course business in 2006 along with his two study partners. In 2013 he went on his own with Storm Anesthesia.
Michael continues to teach anesthesia residents in the OR and has helped numerous nurse anesthesia residents pass the NCE doing his on-site or virtual review courses. 
Michael has a passion for teaching, keeping his nose in the textbooks, and has stopped counting the number of textbooks in his library, but rather measuring by feet, currently >16 feet of textbooks. Yep, he is a little nerdy!

Outside anesthesia, Michael loves snow skiing and is a fully certified PSIA ski instructor, feels relaxed when sailing on Lake Murray in their 25-foot sailboat, enjoys hikes in the mountains or anywhere outdoors, and pre-pandemic you could find him and his wonderful wife Annette traveling all over.
