IV sedation is a very controlled sedation done by an intravenous drip in the arm. This is the most controllable technique as it can quickly and easily be adjusted to the patient’s body type, tolerance levels and depth of sedation desired. This technique produces the deepest sedation and relaxation. Although patients are responsive, they have very little, if any, memory of the experience. The procedure and drugs are very safe. Continuous monitoring of patient’s blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen level, breathing and heart electrical activity (EKG) are a part of our safe standard of care. Patients need to be escorted by a caregiver and are restricted to limited activities and may not drive for the rest of the day.
