TWILIGHT ANAESTHESIA

(Conscious Sedation)

WHAT IS TWILIGHT ANAESTHESIA (Conscious Sedation)?

What is Twilight Anaesthesia (conscious sedation)?

Twilight Anaesthesia (conscious sedation) is a form of anaesthesia that can be controlled so that you are asleep but still able to breath by yourself.  There is no need for intubation as in General Anaesthetic. The aim is to keep you pain free and comfortable.

You will usually have little, if any recollection of the procedure afterwards. Due to the nature of the sedative drugs given, you wake up quicker and with little of the side effects of a general anaesthetic.

The Twilight Anaesthesia sedation technique involves sedative drugs given as an injection into your arm. It is administered by a Consultant Anaesthetist. An Anaesthetist is a medically qualified doctor who undertakes extensive postgraduate training in the field of anaesthetics and sedation. All our anaesthetists are Consultants with years of experience.
