Nursing Pre-Operative and Post Operative Care Team

Our pre-operative and post-anesthesia care nurses are vital members of our Interventional Pulmonology team. They work closely with your procedural physician, anesthesiologist and respiratory therapist. The nurses will assess you and get you ready for the procedure, as well as care for you as you wake up from anesthesia. They’ll monitor your vital signs and prepare you and your family for post procedure care.
