Procedural anesthesia is a technique of administering sedatives or dissociative agents with or without analgesics to induce a state that allows the patient to tolerate unpleasant procedures while maintaining cardiorespiratory function. It was formerly called conscious sedation. There are 3 types of procedural anesthesia, (minimal sedation, moderate sedation and deep sedation) depending on the level or responsiveness to verbal and tactile stimuli and whether airway intervention may be required or not.
In minimal sedation there is usually normal response to verbal stimulus and the airway usually would not require intervention. In deep sedation, there is usually purposeful response to repeated or painful stimuli. Moderate sedation would respond purposefully to verbal or tactile sedation, but airway intervention may be needed.
