Conscious sedation on the Isle of Man

Regent Dental Care is the only practice on the Isle of Man with an in-house anaesthetist. We can therefore offer our patients the option of Conscious sedation

    What is conscious sedation?

    Conscious sedation provides a safe and effective option for patients undergoing minor surgeries. The number and type of procedures that can be performed using conscious sedation have increased significantly as a result of new technology and state of the art drugs and equipment. Conscious sedation allows patients to recover quickly and resume normal daily activities in a short period of time. Because patients can slip into a deep sleep, proper monitoring of conscious sedation is necessary. Healthcare providers monitor patient heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, oxygen level and alertness throughout and after the procedure. The provider who monitors the patient receiving conscious sedation should have no other responsibilities during the procedure and should remain with the patient at all times during the procedure.

      Side Effects Of Sedation

      What are the side effects of conscious sedation?

      A brief period of amnesia after the procedure may follow the administration of conscious sedation. Occasional side effects may include headache, hangover, nausea and vomiting or unpleasant memories of the surgical experience.

        What should patients expect immediately following the surgical or diagnostic procedure? 

        A qualified provider monitors the patient immediately following the procedure. Written postoperative care instructions will be given to the patient to take home. Patients should not drive a vehicle, operate dangerous equipment or make any important decisions for at least 24 hours after receiving conscious sedation. A follow-up phone call usually is made by the healthcare provider to check on the patient’s condition and answer any remaining questions.
