Sedation Process

for Medical and Dental Procedures

Step 1

Once the medical or dental procedure is scheduled, we will contact you to ask a few questions about your medical history and provide you with the necessary instructions.

 

Step 2

On the day of the procedure, we will meet you at your doctor’s or dentist’s office, where informed consents will be signed, and we will commence with monitoring.

Step 3

Through intravenous access, we will begin giving you sedative medications that will keep you asleep while your doctor and/or dentist performs the procedure.

Step 4

The doctor and/or dentist will be able to carry out the procedure in a safer, more professional and agile way, since you will be in a fully collaborative state.

Step 5

At the end of the procedure, you will wake up quickly with slight dizziness and/or drowsiness.

You can eat immediately unless the dentist contraindicates it.

You should know about intravenous sedation

This process must be carried out by an anesthesiologist

There are several levels of sedation that vary depending on the procedure and the patient’s needs. At CONTIGO SEDACIÓN we care about your comfort and safety, through the use of innovative techniques.

For intravenous sedation, vein access is always required. This is a straightforward procedure conducted by our experienced staff.

We use the smallest gauge needle available and employ advanced techniques to minimize discomfort. Recognizing that some patients may have severe phobias or difficulty cooperating during venous access. We have a special machine that allows us to induce sleep by inhaling a gas through a mask. Once asleep we can establish venous access without the patient having any memory.(Please note that this service must be booked in advance and carries an additional cost for adult patients).

Through this venous access, we administer medications to keep you asleep. In addition, we can provide analgesics, anti-inflammatories, antibiotics and other medications to enhance the recovery process.
