What is a Conscious Sedation?

Being fully aware of your surroundings, without feeling any pain and no memory of the procedure.

The anesthetist administraters one or more drugs into the vein in the hand or arm. The amount varies according to the patient's needs and weight. This produces sedation, which lasts between 1-1/2hours. The patient is constantly monitored throughout the procedure. The effects of the drug(s) take 24 hours to wear off.

The detist gives local anesthetic into the areas being treated, mostly the patient will not be aware of that being done, especially in the early stages of the procedure, but some patients may still be aware. Conscious sedation is NOT a General Anesthetic - at no time is the patient unconscious during the procedure, but will be aware of what is happening. (read more...)
