Is versed a dangerous drug for colonoscopy? What are the side effects?

Versed

Low_blood_pressure
It can usually be used safely. There is a drug that can rapidly reverse it's effects. Although the incidence of respiratory depression/arrest is low (0.1-0.5%) when midazolam is administered alone at normal doses,[47][48] the concomitant use with CNS acting drugs, mainly analgesic opiates, may increase the possibility of hypotension, respiratory depression, respiratory arrest. www.wikipedia.com

Can you get a colonoscopy or endoscopy with copd?

Yes.

Colonoscopy
care with the use of anesthesia so as not to sedate too much and decrease respiration is all that is necessary, and the availability to reverse events should they occur is imperative.

Need unsedated colonoscopy?

Most patients

Colonoscopy
find mild sedation helpful during a colonoscsopy however many can tolerate the procedure without sedation. Talk with your endoscopist to see if you are a candidate.

What is it like to have a colonoscopy?

Not as bad :)

Colonoscopy
It is probably not as bad as you may have heard. You are given sedation and for the most part of the study you are asleep. They introduce a camara through your rectum and look throughout your colon. It is over in 20 mins. Good luck!

What should i expect from a colonoscopy?

COLONOSCOPY

Colonoscopy
You can expect to have some form of bowel prep the day before. The day of, you will be given an IV and medications to sedate you. The colonoscopy should take roughly 15-25 minutes to complete depending on findings. You will then wake up and recover (30 minutes or so), and then be discharged home. A relatively safe procedure with few and rare complications.

Dr. Vivek Huilgol answered:

What if the colonoscopy shows something abnormal?

Diagnosis/treatment

Cancer
At colonoscopy most visible abnormalities are either definitively diagnosed via sampling (biopsy) or removed completely also for diagnosis that includes the treatment. Some findings, eg cancer, need definitive treatment via other modes (for example but not limited to surgery).

Why would I have a colonoscopy when anemic?

Looking for cause

Colonoscopy
Your doctor is looking for a reason for your anemia and one possibility is that you have been bleeding from your GI tract without noticing it. There are multiple causes for this ranging from benign to cancer.

Dr. Richard K. Orr answered:

What is a colonoscopy?

Look inside colon

Cancer
You are sedated (very sleepy, but still breathing on your own). The endoscopist places an instrument through your anus and then passes it into the colon to carefully exam the colon for polyps, cancer, etc. If any abnormalities are found a biopsy may be done. Typically, it is painless - the only bother is cleaning out your bowels beforehand and even that's not so bad.

I am pregnant. Are there any dangers to having a colonoscopy?

Remote

Colonoscopy
The only pregnancy-specific danger might be the choice of which anesthetic your gastroenterologist uses and at what stage in your pregnancy you get it. Generally speaking, the greatest danger to the fetus from exposure to outside chemicals occurs in the first trimester, so if the procedure can't be put off until after delivery, I would at least wait until 14-15 weeks.
