Sedation is the use of sedative medications to help reduce anxiety, discomfort, and pain during certain procedures. This method is carried out with anesthetic drugs, which are sometimes given by injection, sometimes with drugs taken by mouth.
The drugs used in the sedation process and their doses vary depending on the age, medical history and gender of the people. Specialist physicians determine the appropriate medications and doses for patients. Sedation drugs are given to the patient orally or intravenously. In general, during the sedation process, drugs with a mild sedative and pain-reducing effect are used.
