IV Sedation involves a sedative that is administered intravenously, or directly into a vein. It is indicated when deeper sedation is required. This type of sedation can be quickly modified to your state of consciousness and can be continued as long as necessary for the procedure.
Special Instructions: An escort will need to be present for the appointment and be able to drive you home when the appointment is completed. For morning appointments (before 1:00 pm), do not eat or drink after midnight the night before your appointment. For afternoon appointments (after 1:00 pm) with IV sedation, do not eat or drink at least 6 hours prior to your appointment.
