Sure: Many procedures can be done with regional, neuraxial, or local anesthesia only. If you avoid sedation, preprocedure benzodiazepines, or mac anesthesia, you should be wide awake and in full control of yourself the entire time.
Dr. Richard Pollard
Anesthesiology 30 years experience
Trust us: The sedation medications that we give to you for the anesthetic do not make you say embarrassing things. The drugs may relax you, but that is all.

Embarrassing things: Relax and breathe IV sedation relaxes you.

How is the post anesthesia recovery score used?

Dr. Scott Roethle

For discharge: Post anesthesia recovery score basically helps to tell when a patient is ready to discharge from the post-anesthesia care unit (pacu). Patients should be awake, have stable and normal vital signs, have controlled pain, minimal nausea, and show no ill effects from surgery or anesthesia.

Dr. Michael Zadeh

Monitored Care: During monitored anesthesia care (mac) patients are given medications which cause sedation and relaxation so that minor procedures can be performed. Mac differs from general anesthesia in that the patient continues to breathe on their own without the use of a breathing tube.
