Procedural sedation and analgesia, commonly referred to as “sedation,” is a treatment strategy to relieve pain, anxiety and suppress patient movements during diagnostic and therapeutic procedures by administering anxiolytic, sedative, analgesic, and/or dissociative drugs. The goal is to minimize patient awareness and discomfort while maintaining patient safety. Sedation depth should vary in accordance with the specific needs of the patient and procedure.
