IV conscious sedation

IV conscious sedation is sometimes also known as “twilight sedation.” It’s used mainly to help control anxiety and discomfort regarding your surgical procedure. The medicine is introduced into your system via a small IV, and it will help you be comfortable and calm throughout your procedure. You may not be asleep the entire time, but you will be in a “twilight state,” essentially drifting in and out of sleep.

The goal of IV conscious sedation is to use as little medication as possible to get the surgery completed. This option is much safer than traditional oral sedation.
