Will I be asleep for my procedure?


In the procedure room an anesthesia provider will position you comfortably and give you medications through an IV, known as MAC anesthesia, to cause relaxation and sedation.  This will cause you to fall asleep but you can breathe on your own and will wake up quickly.  Based on your individual procedure and medical history you and your GI physician may determine to use an anesthetic known as moderate sedation (twilight sedation) or even no sedation at all, as appropriate.
