Evidenced Base Selection of L-Cysteine Use in the Peri-Operative Period to Decrease Post-Operative Residual NMB after administration of Gantacurium chloride

SENIOR PROJECT

Evidenced Base Selection of L-Cysteine Use in the Peri-Operative Period to Decrease Post-Operative Residual NMB after administration of Gantacurium chloride

The Program's goal is to prepare the Resident Registered Nurse Anesthetist (RRNA) on a graduate level to become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) who is ready to assume an advanced role on the health care team.  Completion of a senior project will demonstrate the student’s ability to fulfill some of the advanced professional requirements contained in the Scope and Standards of Nurse Anesthesia Practice.  The three different types of projects are designed to address:
1.    Evidence Based Practice: The RRNA shall incorporate into practice new techniques and knowledge, which have been acquired through formal, self-directed study and participate in the advancement of the specialty.
TYPES OF PROJECT
A.   Evidence Based Projects
1.    Evidence-based Practice (EBP). Explore or update controversial and dynamic topics in the practice of anesthesia.  Examples of such papers might include the role of monitors upon anesthesia outcome, new anesthetic drugs, or techniques or evidence based evaluation of an element of anesthesia practice.  A literature review paper should provide new information to practicing anesthesia providers that would not typically be taught in a basic anesthesia program.  This paper cannot be a review of a textbook.  Research articles referenced in this paper should be evaluated for their strengths and limitations not simply listed along with their findings and conclusions. (The review of current literature is an individual project).
AMA FORMAT
An Excellent Handbook: Introduction to the AMA 10th and Other Writing Tips for Nurse Anesthesia, has been provided for your use by Cheryl Prentice of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.  This booklet has excellent information on AMA format and good professional writing practices.  We are grateful that Ms. Prentice was willing to share all of her hard work. Please note that there are some requirement differences between the handbook and this assignment and any questions must be directed to your advisor and not to the University of Minnesota.

AMA formatting rules can also be obtained at the official AMA Internet site (http://www.amamanualofstyle.com/) and is available for purchase.
