Intravenous sedation is the direct introduction of a drug into a patient’s bloodstream and the drug is normally called Hypnovel (Midazolam). It works on the central nervous system to produce sedation by providing a hypnotic effect and relaxes patients by reducing their anxiety.
We also offer oral sedation which comes in tablet form. We prescribe Temazepam tablets which belong to the “benzodiazepine” family.
Benzos directly and efficiently decrease anxiety by binding with receptors in the brain which tone down activity in those parts of the brain responsible for fear.
