Dr. Richard C Gaard 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.

Worked with Richard Gaard, M.D.A.

Outstanding anesthesia practitioner in Minneapolis, MN. Also know as an auto mechanic and race car driver. His original tinkering with his good friend Richard Dahlberg, who was a pioneer in hearing aide technology, resulted in building their "micro-circulatory correlator" (an instrument to be able to monitor capillary perfusion while under anesthesia). This instrument was the origin of today's Pulse Oximetry technology, which is standard of care in every hospital in the country. (Little acknowledged history!!)
