Best sedation practices for interventional gastrointestinal endoscopy involve the consideration of many patients' factors, including age, medical history, clinical status, level of anxiety as well as physician's access to anaesthesia support.Conscious sedation itself would lead to serious complications,even to mortality in non-skilled hands or in not well organized units. The increasing technical complexity of the endoscopic procedures frequently requires deeper levels of sedation, which can be advantageous for patient comfort and for achievement of higher quality procedures, especially in children and elderly patients who are difficult to cooperate with.
