Dr. Michael McCord has the following 1 specialty

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Ineffective Epidural

My water broke around 6pm and contractions started around 10pm. After 12 hours of labor I asked for some anesthesia. Dr. Michael McCord arrived at 10am to administer the epidural. It took three spinal injections to finally insert the port into my back. I received some relief at first, and then quickly regained all feeling. Dr. McCord was called in two additional times, each time administering another dose of medication into the port taped to my shoulder. Neither of these doses took effect so he was called in a third time. I told him I still had all feeling and he asked if I could raise my leg, upon seeing that I could, he made a fourth injection into my spine to administer another epidural. I finally had some relief. However, only a short time later, at 2pm my OB recommended an emergency C-section.
