Iv Sedation Vs General Anesthesia
IV vs GA.: There are 4 levels of sedation, the "deepest" is general anesthesia. A very detailed answer is at https://www. Asahq. Org/for-members/clinical-information/~/media/for%20members/documents/standards%20guidelines%20stmts/continuum%20of%20depth%20of%20sedation. Ashx.
Is the medicine used in IV Sedation same as General Anesthesia. Can you please explain the differences between these 2 procedures.
Possibly: Anxiolysis is a continuum fm light sedation to general anesthesia. Depending on the technique sedation ranges fm light to moderate to deep to general anesthesia. Some people do very well with light sedation others are more difficult actually having a harder time trying to cooperate thereby requiring more sedation. As sedation requirements increase the likely hood of general anesthesia is greater.See 1 more doctor answer
I.v. sedation: The best course of action is to discuss the anesthesia plan with your anesthesia doctor prior to surgery. Wisdom tooth extraction can be done safely and pain free with I.V. Sedation, without the need for a breathing tube. General anesthesia for wisdom tooth extraction will require a breathing tube and because of this can be associated with additional risks.See 5 more doctor answers
What is the difference between IV sedation and general anesthesia for having wisdom tooth extractions?
Depends on situation: Iv sedation can be provided by an oral surgeon, and is often a very good technique for wisdom tooth extraction. For certain high-risk patients (morbid obesity, severe heart or lung problems), general anesthesia with a breathing tube and control of the airway may be a safer alternative. Every case is different, and an individualized care plan with anesthesiology consultation may be in order.See 5 more doctor answers

What is sedation vs general anesthesia? What is the difference between being sedated and having general anesthesia?
Consciousness: The difference is level of consciousness. A patient under sedation should be able to respond to verbal or tactile stimuli. A patient under general anesthesia has complete loss of consciousness--he/she should have complete amnesia, be immobile, have no response to external stimuli, and have analgesia or absence of response to painful stimuli.See 3 more doctor answers
It depends...: A lot can be achieved with local anesthesia (numbing) and "conscious" sedation (where, in theory, the patient is able to respond, but may not remember the events). The requirements are a motivated patient and a proceduralist comfortable doing the intervention under those circumstances.
Yes: Yes you can refuse, some patients do not like to be sedated preop, not an unusual request.
With conscious: Sedation now called moderate sedation, you don't lose purposeful reactions to commands.See 1 more doctor answer

How long does tip rhinoplasty take? Is it done under general anesthesia or sedation? What is recovery/result time compared to full rhinoplasty?
