Twilight sedation is the use of IV (intravenous) drugs to induce a deeply-relaxed state.
Although you remain conscious of what is happening, you won’t actually be bothered by anything, nor will you remember anything afterwards.
Twilight sedation is not general anaesthesia and does not carry the same level of risk.
We engage a fully-qualified medical anaesthetist to administer the IV sedative and monitor your wellbeing throughout the entire procedure.
A milder alternative to twilight sedation is inhalation sedation. “Laughing gas” is used to induce a relaxed and sometimes euphoric state during the procedure.
