Olivia Maggitti, BSN, RN
Student Registered Nurse Anesthetist
University of North Florida
Olivia Maggitti is a Student Registered Nurse Anesthetist (SRNA) from the University of North Florida projected to graduate with her Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP) in nurse anesthesia in December 2018. She and her fellow classmate Angela Hankins chose the topic of emergence agitation in pediatric patients after witnessing the use of dexmedetomidine to produce a smooth emergence in pediatric patients. Their clinical experiences drove them to examine the current research to determine the evidence-based benefits of using dexmedetomidine versus current alternative medications for reducing emergence agitation in pediatric surgical patients undergoing general anesthesia.
