IV Conscious Sedation
IV Conscious Sedation is used to help patients feel more comfortable during periodontal surgery. During this procedure, a small tube, or catheter, is inserted into a vein in order to give sedative medication. The doctor is better able to control the level of sedation in this manner, as they can give as much or as little of a sedative to produce, and maintain a relaxed state.
What does IV sedation feel like?
Although some patients may report feeling as though they were “put to sleep”, the goal of this form of sedation is to maintain patient comfort with minimal risk. Once under sedation, patients are able to respond to verbal commands, and can breathe without the help of a ventilator.
This form of sedation is a great way to relieve anxiety during surgery, and provide amnesia of the surgical event!
