Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents information on abstracts related to endoscopy. An abstract presents information on the effect of age and gender on an individual patient's likely decision. Non-sedated patients can usually be rapidly discharged whereas sedated patients require more intensive monitoring and spend a longer period on the endoscopy unit before discharge. In planning an outpatient (OP) list of OGOs or flexible sigmoidoscopys (FSs), there is thus some merit in trying to ensure that the last on the list have opted not to be sedated. Patients undergoing OP diagnostic OGD or FS are, however, given a free choice as to whether or not they would prefer to be sedated.
