Gastroscopy - analgosedation
To improve the patient’s comfort in the Endoscopy Centre we use analgosedation in case of endoscopy procedures. Our Centre is the Only one which uses this method not only in colonoscopy, but also in gastroscopy.
Analgosedation is a modern method of anaesthesia, which uses sedative drugs together with painkillers and regional anaesthesia drugs. They are given intravenously.
The role of analgosedation is to inhibit the feeling of pain completely This method do not require intubation or general anaesthesia because functions of circulatory and respiratory systems are preserved.
The drugs used in case of analgosedation causes complete oblivion during the procedure. In the same time the drugs work for a short period which is reason why symptoms as sore throat, hoarseness, muscle pain, postoperative headache, weakness, nausea and vomiting, characteristic for narcosis in case of analgosedation do not appear. This kind of anaesthesia is also less toxic for the organism then narcosis.
It increases the patient’s comfort and his acceptance of the procedure. It also make good conditions for the endoscopy team.
In our Endoscopy Centre specialist doctor of anaesthetics take care of patients during the whole time of a procedure.
A patient wake up after the procedure and then rests in the recovery room.
