This article focuses on a study that explores whether patients' preferences for sedation at gastroscopy are influenced by preceding patients' decisions. When patients are offered a choice of being sedated or not for gastroscopy, it is not known whether such decisions are influenced by the decision and experience of preceding patients on the same endoscopy list. A patient's decision to have sedation or not during a diagnostic gastroscopy is not influenced by the decision of preceding patients on the same endoscopy list.
