Anxiolysis provides a lighter level of sedation. A situation may arise in which a patient desires a lighter level of sedation than conscious sedation provides. An example may be the slightly anxious patient who needs a slightly stronger form of sedation in order to receive treatment. Anxiolysis could be appropriate for this situation. Many patients in general practice presently benefit from a medication given preoperatively, ultimately helping them relax for a perceived invasive procedure.
This form of sedation will not impair your motor skills, which means you will able to drive home safely after the procedure is finished. Please contact us if you have any further questions regarding Anxiolysis.
