Where would u have child's MRI w/sedation- children's hospital outpatient center or hospital? Imaging director said only difference is no "code team"?

Where would u have child's MRI w/sedation- children's hospital outpatient center or hospital? Imaging director said only difference is no "code team"?

Hard to say: Many facilities are unique in their approach to this issue and follow strict guidelines on who is present for such a study. In my area they require an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist be present whose only job is tending to the patient continuously. A code team down the hall doesn't seem better than a one on one with the leader of such a team. ...Read more

Yes but...: They are mostly there for emergency surgery. Gallstones are only an emergency when they are infected. If you are having fevers, constant increasing pain with vomiting and unable to keep anything down then you need to go to the Emergency Room. Otherwise your GP or whoever ordered the ultrasound will refer you to a surgeon for elective surgery- but it won't happen over the holidays... ...Read more

Looking at becoming an cardiac echo tech. Are there many jobs out there? Good schools in socal? Looking to make a decent living. Ekg tech maybe?

Good idea: An echo tech is a good job and can make a decent living. Ekg tech won't do much for you-it's not a sole position; you'd have to do other things and it doesn't pay. Consider school to become a pacemaker tech - they do very well and the demand for trained people is increasing as device use is on the rise. ...Read more
