We work with Gastroenterologists
Sedation and analgesia are considered by many gastroenterologists to be an integral component of the endoscopic examination. For example, more than 98% of endoscopists routinely administer sedation during upper and lower endoscopies.
Sedation is intended primarily to reduce a patient's anxiety and discomfort, consequently improving their tolerability for the procedure. Endoscopic sedation also minimizes a patient's risk of physical injury during an examination and provides the endoscopist with an ideal environment for a thorough examination.
Providing an adequate regimen of sedation/analgesia might be considered an art, influencing several aspects of endoscopic procedures: the quality of the examination, the patient’s cooperation and the patient’s and physician’s satisfaction with the sedation.
