Post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) nurse

Post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) nurses work with patients as they regain consciousness from anesthesia after surgery. Also known as peri-anesthesia nurses, they are prepared to handle patients who react aversely, wake up in pain or confusion or experience other problems. PACU nurses are a comforting presence to those coming out of anesthesia and can offer tips for their recovery.
