Conscious Care Sedation Anesthesia

Conscious care sedation is used in most Ophthalmic surgical procedures. It minimizes pain and anxiety during the surgery. At the same time, this type of anesthesia allows the patient to be conscious, able to respond to verbal commands, and able to breathe without assistance.

With conscious care sedation, medication is introduced using intravenous means in my practice. It is a very safe method for achieving the goal of comfort and cooperation for the patient during the surgical procedure. In addition, this method of anesthesia allows patients to feel well and alert after the procedure.

After conscious care sedation, you may not remember all or part of the procedure, and rarely, you may experience headache, nausea, and vomiting. You will be monitored closely during the procedure and immediately following your procedure. One should not drive or operate dangerous equipment for 24 hours after sedation.
