Sedation
At Peppermint we provide two types of sedation for anxious patients, or those undergoing prolonged surgical procedures, inhalation sedation and intravenous sedation.

Inhalation Sedation is more commonly used for children. It doesn’t make the child go to sleep, but puts them in a state of relaxation so that treatment is more pleasant. The patient breathes a mixture of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oxygen, through a rubber cup that sits comfortably over their nose. Patients recover very quickly once they stop breathing the gas and are able to go home as soon as treatment is complete.

Intravenous sedation is another way to help reduce anxiety in patients and make potentially stressful procedures more pleasant. The sedative is given through a small plastic tube placed into a vein on the back of your hand or inside your elbow. The sedative is given in small quantities, over a period of time until you are sedated enough for the procedure to begin. After the procedure, a short recovery period is necessary. The patient is transferred to our dedicated recovery room, and monitored until we are satisfied that they have recovered enough to go home with their escort. Most patients have no or very little recollection of their treatment.

The effects of the sedative may be present in your system for up to 24 hrs, so it is important that you follow our post-operative instructions.
