Dear JohnQ. You have recently been appointed InterimDean of the College of Health Sciences at BarryUniversity. Can you tell us what your promotion willentail with regards to the Anesthesiology Program?Leigh Anne Cadoe, MS, CRNA (Class of 2007), Parkland Hospital, Dallas, TXHi, Leigh Anne! Thanks for writing infrom Texas. It is good to hear from you.One of the best things about being involved in the Anesthesiology program forthe past dozen years is the close relationships I was able to form with our graduates. I really appreciate hearing from somany of you.I am extraordinarily lucky to be offeredthis opportunity to serve the Collegeof Health Sciences in a different way. Iknow I have big shoes to fill! The skillsI developed as a nurse anesthetist allowme to be very aware of details and provide me with the ability to react quickly. Iknow I will continue to use those skills attimes. My view, however, will be broader – the 35,000 foot level, so to speak.Much of my work, therefore, will nowinvolve observing, listening, and thinkingabout long-term strategies.The challenges I will face are universalto most deans: continuing to attract thebest and brightest students and faculty,promoting student and faculty success,encouraging diversity and inclusivitythat reflects our society, sustaining andextending our University partnerships.But being in a College of Health Sciences brings a nuance: our health caresystem is in a state of constant change.This makes educating future health careprofessionals tricky. I will be working witha talented team of faculty to be considering how we can manage a system that isin constant “white water.” This includesissues like how we can enhance transdisciplinary collaboration, what we can doto improve access to health care for allcitizens, and how we can better use evidence to make clinical decisions. Someof our colleagues may see this as a problem. I see this as an opportunity for us tobe creative, no matter what our role is inhealth care.I plan to stay engaged with the nurse anesthesia students at Barry, offering support to Dr. Umadhay and his faculty. Theprogram continues to grow stronger asthe faculty brings new ideas to fruition.Now that so many of our graduates arereturning for the DNP Anesthesiologyprogram, I am enjoying many reunions.I hope to continue helping with lecturesand doctoral projects for both the MSand DNP Anesthesiology programs aslong as the faculty and students want me!Dr.Umadhay Receives Award from the BrowardPartnership for the HomelessDr. Umadhay wasone of eight recipients of the WorkforceDevelopment Ambassadors Award bytheBrowardPartnership forthe HomelessInc.

Anesthesia LandMarksAnesthesia Program Welcomes New Faculty MemberDr. Melissa MachanThe administration and faculty are pleased to welcome MelissaMachan, DNP, CRNA, as adjunct faculty in the DNP with a Specialization in Anesthesiology Program at Barry University. Dr.Machan will be teaching the Role of the DNP course in the fall2012 semester and will also be lecturing on a variety of clinicaltopics, including obstetrics andresearch, in the MS in Anesthesiology Program. Dr. Machan joinsthe faculty with a solid background in clinical practice andscholarly work.Dr. Machan earned a BSN atthe University of North Floridain 2000 and an MSN at FloridaInternational University in 2003.In 2004, she received the Outstanding Scholastic Achievement Award from the FloridaInternational University Collegeof Health and Urban Affairs forpublication of her thesis, Presence of visible and occult blood on anesthesia airway equipment.Presently, Dr. Machan is a full-time nurse anesthetist at Plantation General Hospital, where her practice focuses primarily onobstetric anesthesia care. She developed her interest in teaching nurse anesthesiology through her experience as a nurse anesthesiology preceptor in the Labor and Delivery unit at Plantation General Hospital.When asked how earning a DNP degree has impacted her roleas a CRNA, Dr. Machan described that earning a practice-focused doctoral degree has changed the way she approachesher practice. Now, she understands that her role in delivering safe, quality anesthesia care extends beyond the operatingroom, and that as a doctorally-prepared practitioner, she hasbecome a leader in effecting change in order to improve patientcare. As she will be teaching the Role of the DNP course duringthe Fall 2012 semester, Dr. Machan is looking forward to sharing her experience and perspective in this regard with the DNPin Anesthesiology students.When asked why she chose to join the DNP in Anesthesiologyfaculty at Barry, Dr. Machan explained that she is impressedby the curriculum that is focused specifically on anesthesiology,and that the Barry program is among the small number of DNPprograms that are accredited by the Council on Accreditationof Nurse Anesthesia Education Programs. Dr. Machan is alsoIn 2011, Dr. Machan earned a Doctorate in Nursing Practice interested in the program’s design using distance-learning techfrom the University of North Florida, and the AANA Journal has nology.since accepted for publication two scholarly articles based uponher DNP dissertation, Emerging evidence in infection control Please join us in welcoming our new faculty member!effecting change.Dr. Malina Meets First Lady Michelle Obama andSecond Lady Dr. Jill BidenRepresentingthe AmericanAssociation ofNurse Anesthetists (AANA),Debra Malina,CRNA, DNSc,MBA,BarryUniversity faculty and AANAPresident,joined numerous other nursing schools and organizations at aninitiative of First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden at theUniversity of Pennsylvania School of Nursing in May.4 Anesthesia CIRCUITIn a broad, coordinated effort, the AANA and more than 150other state and national nursing organizations including over500 nursing schools have committed to further educate our nation’s 3 million nurses so they are prepared to meet the uniquehealth needs of service members, veterans, and their families.“CRNAs can make a dramatic and positive impact on the longterm health of hundreds of thousands of veterans for years tocome. And it is an important part of our education to understand the needs of those who have served, to recognize thewarning signs of post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, orsuicide, and to know where to send them for help,” said Dr.Malina.
Alumni SpotlightA Life Changed Forever:An Army NurseAnesthetist’s Experiencein AfghanistanCary Carter, MS, ARNP, CRNA(Class of 2009)Captain, United States ArmySeventy-two hours after leaving the comforts of my home, Ifound myself wearing a Kevlar helmet, body armor and carrying a loaded 9mm pistol. The U.S. Air Force had me strappedto the interior of a C-130 cargo plane during a “combat landing,” which incorporated a continuously turning and unforgivingly steep final approach to a Forward Operating Base (FOB)in Eastern Afghanistan. Instead of the “butterflies” being in mystomach, they were in my throat and very likely to fly out ofmy mouth. I heard what sounded like a buzz saw coming fromthe rear of the plane and realized it was the automatic missiledefense system. “Damn, does the insurgency possess surfaceto-air missiles?” I wondered: “What had I been thinking whenI volunteered to come to a war zone?” This was real and sowas the enemy who hated me with every fiber of his being,even though we had never met. I suddenly wished I was athome with my expectant wife enjoying a morning espresso andpastry.Later that night, we received our first incoming, warned in advance by the Big Voice. “Steamboat, Steamboat, Liberty Red,20 minutes”. The loudspeaker informed us a “medevac” helicopter would soon bring 3 wounded, all likely requiring somelevel of surgical intervention. The butterflies were back andthey were in my throat again but I didn’t have the plane rideto blame this time. It was just my nerves. I had trained for thepast 4 years and it was time to step up to the plate. The thoughtof failure terrified me. What if I missed an intubation - or evenworse - become possessed by indecision that could cost one ofour soldiers his or her life?I stood at the head of the bed with a medic on each side andthe trauma surgeon at the foot watching the doors burst open.“Gunshot wound times three to the right upper chest, two largebore IVs, blood pressure 100/ 62, heart rate 140s,” shoutedthe medic. Our movements were choreographed to quicklyassess the injured to increase the patients’ chance of survival.Rapid sequence intubation and simultaneous primary assessment with the placement a chest tube was performed. MajorWilson, our trauma surgeon, witnessed 600mL of blood rapidlyfill the chest tube reservoir and said to the team, “Let’s get himto the OR now.”During my tour,the scene repeated about threehundredtimeswith varying levels of acuity. I wastouched by the appreciation and respect displayed bythe young soldiersto the healthcareproviders.Everytime I heard “thankyou,” I replied,“It is me and myfamily who wantto thank you forstandingwatchoutside that wire[fence] so we mayrest peacefully athome”. Like thoseyoung soldiers, mylife has been forever altered by thoseevents in Afghanistan.Motivated by the professional and personal experiences I hadduring my tour in Afghanistan I decided to pursue a life as anArmy CRNA on a full-time basis. Upon my return to the UnitedStates, I went to the Army Healthcare Recruiting station andrequested an active duty position. A little less than year later,I received my orders effectively discharging me from the ArmyReserve and placing me on active duty in the Regular Army. Iam currently in the process of reporting to Martin Army Community Hospital at Ft. Benning, Georgia. I am looking forwardto a rich and rewarding career of caring for the world’s greatestwarriors.Anesthesia CIRCUIT 5
