In brief: Versed
Is an anxiolytic that sedated and can cause amnesia.
It can also be given as part of a balanced technique for sedation or general anesthesia. Under ga, you are completely unconscious.

In brief: Effects
Versed is a short acting benzodiazepine, in the same class as valium, that provides relaxation and some memory loss to a patient.
Operations are not possible unless other medications are given. General anesthesia puts the entire body to sleep so that a surgeon is able to perform their operation.
