ABSTRACT
The article examines the process of procedural sedation and agents that may be used in a variety of common scenarios. Originally called "conscious sedation" in 1992, the currently preferred term is procedural sedation which replaced conscious sedation to reflect the concept that effective sedation can alter consciousness. The goal of procedural sedation is to induce a state that allows the patient to tolerate an unpleasant procedure while maintaining cardiorespiratory function.
