Twilight Sedation

What is Twilight Sedation?

Twilight sedation is a form of anaesthetic in which medications are used to make you feel very relaxed and comfortable, and oblivious to your surroundings. It is not a general anaesthetic that is used in large hospitals for major procedures and involves having a breathing tube placed down your throat. The level of sedation in twilight sedation can be varied according to the needs of the procedure and the wishes of the patient.

Patients find twilight sedation much more enjoyable than general anaesthetic. Twilight sedation tends to make you forget what happens as well.

It is important not to consume food 6 hours prior to your procedure. You are allowed small sips of water up to 3 hours prior to your procedure.

Who is a good candidate?

  • You need to be fit and well (especially free of heart and lung problems)
  • No prior anaesthetic problems

Who is not a good candidate?

  • Anyone with serious medical conditions

Administration of twilight sedation

Twilight sedation is administered in a safe and controlled environment (procedure room).

It is administered via a small needle (intravenous cannula) that will be inserted either in your arm or back of hand.

Following twilight sedation

You may feel drowsy and sleepy for a short time following twilight sedation. It is important that you have a responsible adult to escort you home (not using public transport). You should not drive a vehicle for 24 hours following your procedure. It is also important not to operate any machinery for the following 24 hours.

Pre operative assessment

Prior to your procedure you will have a  pre-operative assessment. At this assessment you will be provided with twilight sedation information and instructions.
