The article focuses on sedation techniques for ambulatory procedures. These techniques have become popular for different diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed on an ambulatory basis. The three levels of sedation are termed as minimal sedation, moderate sedation and deep sedation. Minimal sedation is a state in which patients respond normally to verbal commands but cognitive function and coordination may be mildly impaired.
