Sedation is a sleeping state that can be adjusted with depth control by preserving all the reflexes of the patient with sedative drugs. It is a method practiced by an anesthesiologist.
The patient has to stop eating and drinking 2 hours before starting the procedure. Sedation begins by opening the vein pathway and administering the solution. In children who are not psychologically and mentally prepared to open the vein pathway (age is small, mental retardation, hyperactive etc.) sedation is started by dropping through the nostrils, after which the vein path is opened and processed. When the patient’s sedation reaches adequate depth, treatment begins. The patient’s vital signs (pulse, respiration, oxygen saturation, blood pressure, body temperature) are monitored by the anesthesiologist and monitored during surgery. After the treatment is completed, the sediment is superficially terminated. It is one of the advantages of the system to adjust the depth and duration of sedation with the sedative drugs used.
Since the person who is sedated after the application will not remember anything, including “opening the vein,” the procedure is protected from psychological trauma.
