Sedation for Colonoscopy
Sedation for colonoscopy can be done by two different methods. One is called Conscious Sedation and the other is called General Anesthesia. Both types of sedation may result in patients not recalling the procedure or sleeping through all or part of the exam. In order to prepare yourself for your colonoscopy, you should follow the bowel preparation instructions listed below by the type of sedation (conscious sedation or general anesthesia) recommended by the physician who ordered your procedure.
Conscious Sedation is managed by the physician performing your procedure and is performed on main campus and Cleveland Clinic Health System regional facilities.
