Intravenous (IV) sedation is a type of anesthesia given through a tube placed in a vein. It helps you relax, prevents you from feeling pain, and is mainly used for minor medical procedures that don't require deeper general anesthesia. IV sedation offers numerous benefits: fast-acting, rapid recovery, customizable dose, fewer changes in vital signs, fewer side effects, the ability of the patient to cooperate, and more. Before a procedure with IV sedation, you should tell Dr. Noorda about allergies or medical conditions you have. You should also inform him of any medications you are taking and any prior surgeries you've had and the type of anesthesia that was used.
