Conscious sedation services are available at our Broken Arrow facility through Freelance Anesthesia.
Intravenous sedation is defined as a medically controlled state of relaxed consciousness that:
- allows protective reflexes to be maintained
- retains patient’s ability to maintain a continuously independent patent airway, and
- permits appropriate response by the patient to verbal command or physical stimulation
This safe method of sedation helps young children &/or patients who are claustrophobic or in severe pain get the necessary diagnostic imaging they need. Much like going to the dentist the great part is, the sedation does not require lengthy stays so that as little of your time is disrupted as possible.
