During the Procedure
During your IV sedation, you will be awake and conscious, but you may not remember a whole lot about what went on, specifically for these two reasons:
1. IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation. It allows the patient to not be bothered by what’s going so the body can completely respond to treatment.
2. The drugs used for the IV sedation induce a state of memory loss during the time the drug is in the body. Because of this, the time will appear to be passing very quickly to the patient and he or she will not be able to remember much of what happened once the drug is out of their system after the procedure is finished.
