What To Know About IV Sedation

There are many types of anesthesia, but if you need profound anesthesia because you are undergoing surgery, and you want an alternative to general sedation, intravenous, or IV sedation is an excellent choice. The anesthesiologists at Associated Anesthesiologists Inc. in Tulsa, OK, provide a full range of anesthesia services, including IV sedation.

The Facts About IV Sedation

Intravenous, or IV sedation is sedation that is administered directly into a vein. Sedation is profound and almost immediate. Consider these important facts about IV sedation:

  • It’s safe because your breathing and pulse are continuously monitored by an anesthesiologist
  • It can be customized, causing mild, moderate, to deep anesthesia, depending on your needs
  • Its effects are almost immediate because it goes directly into your bloodstream and acts quickly

Before your procedure, your anesthesiologist will review your medical history, the procedure you are having, drug allergies, recent hospitalizations, and past reactions to sedation. Your anesthesiologist will also discuss what you can expect during sedation, after-effects, and recovery, to make sure IV sedation is the best sedation option for you.

IV sedation begins with an IV placed into a vein in your arm. A sedation level is chosen, depending on what level of sedation your anesthesiologist recommends. Levels of sedation include:

  • Minimal sedation, which enables you to be awake, but relaxed during your procedure
  • Moderate sedation, which makes you fall asleep and not remember your procedure
  • Deep sedation, which puts you in a deep sleep, so you won’t remember any of the procedure

IV sedation is an excellent alternative to general anesthesia because, unlike general anesthesia, IV sedation has minimal to no side effects, and recovery from anesthesia is typically quicker than with general anesthesia. IV sedation is often the anesthesia of choice for minor procedures including colonoscopies, plastic surgeries, and bunion removal.
