For a little while now, I have been avidly reading FaST Surgeon (in Afghanistan), an unofficial blog following the 909th Forward Surgical Team. However, in July the blog author returned home and the amount of new posts unsurprising dropped. However, last week FaST Surgeon pointed out a new medical blog just starting out, CRNA in the ‘Stan, written by Bill Giles, a US Army Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) currently deployed to Afghanistan. So far the posts have been a mix of photos and stories, and are great reading.
Head on over and check them out.
