Today endoscopic examination is the best diagnostic method for the visualization of the upper and lower gastrointestinal system. In many countries endoscopic interventions have become better tolerated and more comfortable using sedoanalgesia and because it causes amnesia in patients repeated examinations are easier. Sedation during endoscopy is a conscious sedation that provides patient cooperation to verbal and and tactile stimuli. In gastroenterology sedation is applied in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic interventions for esophagus, stomach, duodenum and colon and during cholangiopancreaticography.
The procedure of gastrointestinal endoscopy contains multiple standardized diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and has provided a perfect source for IV sedation studies. In gastrointestinal endoscopy sedation is applied safely by endoscopists that are experienced in sedation and analgesics. Especially in the pediatric group, in the presence of cardiac and pulmonary diseases and prolonged duration of the procedure, that the sedation is applied by anesthetists using standard moniterization is most appropriate.
