What is IV sedation?

This form of sedation is administered through an IV so the medication can quickly access your bloodstream. You will remain conscious and aware of what is going on, but you will feel very calm and possibly tired. You will be closely monitored while on IV sedation to ensure your comfort.

What does IV sedation feel like?

Because this type of sedation is administered directly into the bloodstream, you will feel the effects immediately. You will quickly feel a calming effect, drowsiness, slight amnesia and tingling sensations. You will settle into a peaceful, euphoric state and remain there for your treatment.
