Our doctors provide a full range of anesthesia services for patients in the Cleveland, TN area. As with all treatments provided at Ocoee Oral Surgery, anesthesia is delivered with safety and patient comfort being the primary goal. Both doctors have completed full hospital anesthesia rotations, and together have delivered more than 30,000 IV anesthetics. Both doctors are licensed to provide local anesthesia, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), conscious sedation (twilight sleep), and general anesthesia.
Dr.’s Hunter and Paul McCord are also both certified in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and the team’s surgical assistants are Certified Anesthesia Assistants by the American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. All patient vitals are continuously monitored with electrocardiogram (EKG), pulse oximeter, blood pressure tools, as well as the latest in monitoring, capnography, which tracks respiratory gases. Emergency medicines, equipment, and electronic defibrillator (AED) are also all on site.
Discussing the anesthesia options that are available for each oral surgery is part of the initial evaluation for all patients. The final level of anesthesia provided will be decided after a thorough review of the patient’s medical history and previous anesthesia experiences.
